WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- He's a local businessman who's not afraid to speak his political mind. At his restaurant on Carolina Beach Road Richard French has several political signs lining his business with the names of conservative candidates he supports.
Besides the campaign signs, French also puts up his own with messages that call out certain politicians, like "MCINTYRE BOLOGNA $2.29 UNTIL NOV. 2." French says his messages have been very helpful to his business so far.
"It's been up for June, July and August and September," French said. "I've been doing this for about three years now and I'm not new to this game."
French admits that some people have approached him who do not agree with his messages, but French says the vast majority of his customers don't mind them.
