Statement from NCDP Chair Patsy Keever on the appointment of Jay Chaudhuri to the State Senate

The Executive Committee of the Wake County Democratic Party yesterday voted to appoint Jay Chaudhuri to replace Josh Stein as State Senator for the 16th District. Sen. Stein is stepping down to focus on his run for Attorney General. Here is NCDP’s statement on Mr. Chaudhuri’s appointment:

“The North Carolina Democratic Party is excited to welcome the State Senate’s newest member, Jay Chaudhuri, to the General Assembly. I know Jay will pick up where Senator Stein leaves off, fighting for higher teacher pay, protecting women’s rights and working to build an economy that works for all North Carolinians.” – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairwoman Patsy Keeve
