Rep. Ted Budd has been playing defense since getting former President Donald Trump's endorsement in North Carolina's GOP Senate primary. Budd is one of three leading candidates looking to keep an open U.S. Senate seat in Republican hands. Former Gov. Pat McCrory accused Budd's family of “fraud” over a loan it gave to a company run by Budd's father. The family got the loan repaid even as farmers lost millions in the seed company's bankruptcy. Fellow congressman Mark Walker meanwhile says Budd is too cozy with Club for Growth, an influential political action committee spending at least $10 million on his campaign.
