Garrett has run for office several times, as both a Republican and a Democrat. This time, he moved in with his parents.

Garrett says he supports teachers and public education, but on social media he’s blasted the state budgets that raised teacher pay (it’s now been raised five years in a row).

And Garrett doesn’t like recent tax reforms, even though North Carolina’s economy has added over half a million new jobs and now has the most competitive tax climate in the region.

Tax cuts for families and big teacher pay raises. Those are real reforms with broad support. Why is Michael Garrett opposed?
