RALEIGH – The North Carolina House Democratic Caucus raised more than $1.5 million between Caucus fundraising, Member fundraising and Candidate fundraising, completing the single largest day of fundraising in Caucus history, smashing a record set previously this year.
“The House Democratic Caucus has continued to set fundraising records this cycle because our message of building a brighter North Carolina is resonating,” said Amanda Eubanks, NC House Democratic Caucus Deputy Director. “Voters from Murphy to Manteo know what’s at stake in this election and we are going to continue fundraising, organizing, and communicating through November 3 to put an end to the NC GOP decade of corruption.”
North Carolina joined forces with legislative caucuses in Texas, Arizona and Pennsylvania. The effort combined social media as well as partnerships with national organizations, including a Broadway star and Governor Roy Cooper, participation from Fight For Reform, End Citizens United, Let America Vote, the DLCC, National Democratic Redistricting Committee and others.
“After another deceitful week from Republican House Leadership we are doubling down in our efforts to flip the House in November,” said Dana Walton, NC House Democratic Caucus Executive Director. “Health care, education, fair maps are all on the ballot and hardworking North Carolinians deserve leaders in Raleigh who are going to put their needs over special interests.”
The North Carolina House Democrats are working to flip six Republicans held seats to retake the chamber majority this November, and move North Carolina forward.
“We are proud to stand with the NC House Caucus and our incredible slate of candidates in this effort,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “North Carolina Republicans have been a model for the worst behavior in the country, from refusing to expand Medicaid and give health care to more than half a million North Carolinians to defunding public schools and leaving them to scramble, and they’ve used extreme partisan gerrymandering to keep voters from holding them accountable for their extremist record. If we flip the North Carolina House, we can stop gerrymandering in its tracks and give North Carolinians the new leadership they deserve.”
