North Carolina Democratic Party Executive Director Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

“Firing on all cylinders and ready to win up and down the ballot”

RALEIGH, N.C. – North Carolina Democratic Party Executive Director Kimberly Reynolds today marked the one-year anniversary of her tenure with the party, noting that NCDP has come a long way in a short time.

“I’m proud of the support we’ve received from members, volunteers and donors, and the tremendous progress we’ve made together building the party over the past year,” said Reynolds. “Now we’re firing on all cylinders and ready to win elections up and down the ballot in November.”

After a year of increased fundraising, greater volunteer recruitment, hiring a full staff and expanding membership, NCDP is in a better position than ever to help Democrats win in November’s general election.

Further bolstering Democrats’ chances, North Carolina’s GOP candidates continue to stumble. Last week, Attorney General candidate Buck Newton alienated voters across the state by telling supporters at a rally to help him “keep our state straight.” Gov. Pat McCrory continues to deal with fallout from HB2, the bill he signed to legalize discrimination in North Carolina, which has so far cost the state at least 1,750 jobs and $77 million in lost revenue. Both candidates are losing in the latest polls, and the specter of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump dragging the entire ticket down to defeat looms large.

“It’s been a great year for North Carolina Democrats,” said NCDP Chair Patsy Keever. “We’re working hard to get our state back on track, and we know staying focused on adding jobs and growing the economy, and making public education a priority again are the keys to success in November.”



The North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) is the North Carolina affiliate of the Democratic Party. NCDP works to elect Democratic public officials, encourages North Carolinians to become involved in Democratic politics, and fights for equality, opportunity and prosperity for all North Carolinians.
