Democrats Across North Carolina Gather To Mobilize Ahead of Midterm Election

Raleigh, NC – With just a few months until the primary election and less than a year away from the midterm election, Democrats across North Carolina have been gathering at County Conventions to plan and mobilize for strong Democratic turnout in 2022. In 2020, North Carolina Democrats turned out in record numbers to re-elect Governor Cooper, elect two new Democrats to Congress, hold the margins in the legislature, and re-elected members of the Council of the State. Now, in 2022 North Carolina remains one of Democrats’ best opportunities to expand the U.S. Senate majority and candidates are poised to win more seats at the General Assembly and on the Courts.

“I am thrilled that so many North Carolina Democrats attended their County Conventions this year. It demonstrates the excitement around Democratic candidates that have stepped up to serve North Carolinians. This year’s candidates truly reflect the diverse life experiences of people across our great state,” said NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson. “We must remain focused on building upon a strong foundation to ensure that the future is bright and blue.”

Democrats across the state are laser-focused on issues like better access to health care, good education, reliable high-speed internet, taking care of service members, expanding job opportunities, and protecting the environment.
