North Carolina Democrats Continue Rural Listening Tour In Eastern North Carolina

Today, North Carolina Democrats are kicking off another leg of its Rural Tour in Ayden, North Carolina (Pitt County), focused on listening to the concerns of rural North Carolinians and connecting with rural Democrats across the state. 

For NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson, growing up in Franklin County on her family farm was a formative experience, and as Chair – she is committed to ensuring North Carolina Democrats are going everywhere and speaking with every voter about how Democrats can earn their vote in 2022.

“Far too many North Carolinians feel left behind by politicians who have not looked out for their best interest,” said NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson. “For decades, Republicans have blocked progress to expand health care, failed to invest in public schools, and cut taxes to help the ultra-wealthy and corporations – all while leaving working families and rural communities behind.” 

Stops include Pitt, Washington, Dare, Beaufort, and Craven counties. Chair Richardson will be joined by local Democratic elected officials, party leaders and activists. She has previously traveled to Halifax, Hertford, Franklin, Pasquotank, Wilson Counties, and more this cycle.
