I'm proud to announce my endorsement from the North Carolina Troopers Association. As your voice in Congress, I'll work tirelessly to stand up for our women and men of law enforcement.
"The North Carolina Troopers Association is proud to formally announce our endorsement of Alan Swain for Congress, 2nd District.
Alan is a Retired Colonel (USArmy), Entrepreneur, disabled vet and a pillar of our community. We strongly believe Alan will bring the voice of the people who elect him to Washington, DC and represent our rights and interests, not the interests of big business and special interest groups.
There is a clear choice for the North Carolina 2nd Congressional District, and that is Alan Swain.
We encourage you to stand up for the constitution by casting your vote on Tuesday November 3rd for Alan Swain.
The North Carolina Troopers Association was founded in 1977 to promote effective law enforcement. We represent more than 2500 active and retired Highway Patrol employees.
The Troopers Association encourages you to vote Alan Swain on November 3rd."
- Danny Jenkins, President
I couldn't be prouder to announce an endorsement from former Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison.
"Today, our country, and our county, find themselves in truly troubling times. Our valued men and women of blue find themselves under attack. In these difficult times, we need leaders who will defend, NOT defund, our law enforcement officers and stand boldly for the rule of law. That's why I am asking you to support my friend for U.S. House – Alan Swain.
Alan is a proven and dedicated servant leader who cares deeply about our community. He is a retired Army Colonel, successful small business entrepreneur, and patriot who holds his conservative values close. Alan’s vision is to make a genuine difference for everyone who lives in our county and the Second District. He’s the leader our community desperately needs as we navigate these troubling times."
Thank you, Sheriff, for your support of my candidacy. I'm proud to stand beside you in our efforts to support law enforcement and uphold public safety.
Today, I was glad to join State Senate candidate Mario J. Lomuscio as we came together to celebrate community in Brentwood. Great food, friends, and conversation!
It’s been just a couple of days since our first Swain For Congress signs were placed around our district. Already, one has been vandalized and two have been stolen.
It saddens me that this is what politics has become in 2020. Since announcing my run for office, I’ve been dedicated to running a positive campaign. A campaign that focuses on what I will do in office: work to build a better community for everyone. A campaign that emphasizes what makes our community #WakeStrong. A campaign that understands that people are tired of negative campaigns that focus on what is wrong with the opponent rather than what the candidate will actually do for them.
I’m calling on my opponent, as well as everyone running here in Wake County on both sides of the ticket, to publicly call out those who are destroying and stealing these political signs. I’m doing that right now. Together, let’s set the example for our state and nation on how politics can and should be.
Today, as we remember one of the most challenging days in our nation’s history, we’re reminded of the strength of united community.
Team Swain was honored to join in on two events dedicated to remembering the 19th anniversary of 9/11. In New Hill, we joined Tunnels to Towers as they donated a new home to an incredible and resilient Gold Star Family. In Apex, we attended a moving ceremony put on by our local American Legion 124.
We will #neverforget the events that our nation saw on 9/11. We will never forget the amazing resilience and strength of nation’s people in the weeks and months that followed. And we will never forget the power of united community in responding to the challenges we face. #UnitedWeStand.
On this #WorldSuicidePreventionDay, remember to check in on your friends, family, and neighbors. Someone is lost to suicide every 40 seconds. It's time for #mentalhealth to be better addressed at all levels of government.
If you or someone you know may be struggling, reach out. Always remember that you matter and your life is worth living.
I’ve become increasingly disheartened and concerned as I’ve watched the recent events across our country these past few nights. Last night, these violent protests reached our community here in Raleigh.
Earlier this summer, I went downtown and spoke with peaceful protesters on several occasions. While we may have shared some political differences, we engaged in meaningful dialogue about the issues facing our county, state, and nation. I learned something from them, and they learned something from me. At the end of each discussion, we always valued the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation, and we appreciated the fact that everyone was expressing their concerns in peaceful and productive ways.
Later protests in our city became violent, and these protests are now being seen again here in Raleigh. Let me be perfectly clear. The violence, destruction, and lawlessness that we saw last night have absolutely no place here in our community. We all have a duty to stand up for law and order. Upholding public safety throughout our community, and country, is paramount as we seek to rebuild following an unprecedented global pandemic. I urge protesters to do what I did earlier this year: engage in meaningful conversation and dialogue with those around you. Don’t tear down our community as we seek to improve and rebuild. Make your voices heard, but do so peacefully.
Above all else, remember that our community is best when we’re brought together by what unites us. We are all part of one #WakeStrong family determined to build the best community for everyone.
This November, I hope that you’ll remember that we need leaders who will always be willing to listen and support the right to peacefully assemble, but who will ensure that law and order are upheld to keep our communities safe.
This morning, I was glad to join my friend Representative Mark Walker on The KC O'Dea Radio Show to talk a bit about my service and my campaign.
Last night, #TeamSwain hosted a community roundtable on how COVID-19 has impacted our community. Last night’s discussion featured great conversation and calls to action. Special thanks to the incredible Mario Lomuscio for co-hosting, Tracy Savage Taylor for sharing updated statistics, and all of the amazing patriots who shared their voices, stories, and ideas for improvement.
