Business group endorses Strickland
Republican Larry Strickland has picked up an endorsement in his bid for the N.C. House of Representatives.
Strickland, who is seeking the District 28 seat, won the endorsement of the National Federal of Independent Businesses. In November, he faces Democrat Patricia Oliver.
The NFIB did not make an endorsement in the District 26 House race, which pits Democrat Rich Nixon against Republican Donna White.
