New Medium Publication highlights Governor Cooper, Democratic legislators, and party leaders
The publication will amplify the voices of legislators, candidates, volunteers, and every day North Carolinians, offering them a platform to share their reasons for running for office, frustration with Republican efforts to rig the system, or other topics important to North Carolina.
You can find the publication at https://medium.com/north-carolina-democrats. The first four posts include:
- NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin on NC Democrats’ historic filing results in February
- Governor Cooper on meaningful gun reform proposals
- Senator Jeff Jackson on the gun reform bill unveiled by Democratic legislators
- NCDP African-American Caucus President Linda Wilkins-Daniels on Martin Luther King Jr.’s lessons for North Carolina
NC Democrats just made history! Here’s how.
By Wayne Goodwin
This spring, North Carolina Democrats announced we have a candidate running in every single legislative district for this year’s midterm elections.
That means every North Carolina voter from the mountains to the coast will have a Democrat on their ballot in November.
That is historic.
This has never happened before and it’s proof that the energy and enthusiasm that has been building across our state and our country is about more than words – it’s about action.
In the past year, we’ve seen more people getting involved in politics than ever before. Some are donating, volunteering, or calling their legislators for the first time. Some are attending precinct meetings and starting local chapters of grassroots organizations. And some are taking the fight straight to Raleigh by running for office.
This year’s slate of diverse, quality candidates are more representative of North Carolina than any other group before them. They are teachers, doctors, veterans, attorneys, and public officials. Of the full slate, 77 are women – half of our House candidates and a third of our Senate candidates – and 71 are people of color. Some grew up in North Carolina and others moved here in search of quality public schools and job opportunities, only to watch as the Republican General Assembly moved our state backwards.
Every single one of them is ready to fight for the issues that matter most to their communities and to all North Carolinians…”
