NCDP Statement on the Passing of Former NCDP Chair Bert Bennett

Raleigh – NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement on the passing of former NC Democratic Party Chair Bert Bennett:

“Bert Bennett was a remarkable and greatly respected North Carolinian. He dedicated his life to bettering the state and the country he loved, playing vital roles in the election of progressive Democrats like President John F. Kennedy, President Jimmy Carter, Governor Terry Sanford, and Governor Jim Hunt. He was a WWII veteran, a successful businessman, an intensely loyal friend, and a committed ally to the Democratic cause. We are immensely grateful for his service to our state and to our country, and we know that the mark he made on North Carolina will not be soon forgotten.”
