Elizabeth City's Daily Advance article features Candidate Kevin Baiko


Baiko says he’s running for Congress because he “cares about our country and respects its constitution” and believes the nation’s freedoms and values need to be preserved. He supports free markets, the freedom to bear arms, well-enforced borders and a well-regulated immigration system. He also supports “making America our priority,” he said.

The issue that’s likely to set him apart from most other candidates in the 3rd District race, however, is his support for legalizing medical marijuana.

“I feel somebody needs to stand up for this cause and raise awareness of it,” he said. “It’s a large part of my overall platform.”

Baiko believes most Americans support a “sensible drug policy” that includes legalizing medical marijuana. He notes an Elon University poll that found 80 percent of North Carolinians support legalizing medical marijuana. He says the issue “isn’t a partisan one for voters,” but legislators continue to block legalization — to their constituents’ detriment.

“People are unnecessarily suffering and dying because of our drug policy and it needs to be changed,” he said.
Asked how he thinks he’ll fare in what’s generally considered a conservative-leaning district, Baiko says he believes he “stands a great chance” of winning given all that he stands for.

“I am a Christian and a conservative,” he said. “And I don’t think my advocacy for medical marijuana is mutually exclusive to those things.”
