North Carolina

Here we need to:
Flip the State Senate
Flip the State House
​Hold the Governor's Office
Flip the U.S. Senate Seat

With a Supreme Court case against its racist gerrymandering practices, North Carolina isn't exactly the most equitable of states. With a governor's seat to hold onto to prevent further gerrymandering, both chambers to flip, and more,
​we have a lot of opportunity here.


Let's get busy.

State Senate

This November, all 50 State Senate seats are up for grabs, and Democrats need to flip a handful of seats to flip the chamber. A blue wave should do it, so let's get going.


Here are 5 candidates you can contribute to: 4 to keep for Democrats, and 1 trying to flip a red seat!

  • Running against Michael Lee (R), who held the seat in 2016 before losing it to Peterson in 2018

  • ​Peterson won this election by a vey close margin in 2018, in an otherwise Republican stronghold.

  • 2018: D+0.2, 2016: R+15, 2014: R+11

  • Seary's distillery switched production from vodka and rice to make hand sanitizer in the start of the pandemic's escalation

  • ​This was a district that voted R+17 in 2014, and is increasingly blue. We have to hold this seat!

  • 2018: D+4, 2016: R+1, 2014: R+17

  • Crawford's economic vision is one looking toward the future, understanding that the economy must change with the advent of technology

  • The Republican challenger ran a really competitive primary, and with high turnout, NC could look blue enough to flip this district!

  •  2018: R+2.5, 2016: R+11, 2014: R+5

  • DeViere grew up on a dirt road in a single-wide trailer, and now he's running for State Senate!

  • DeViere won this seat in 2018 by less than 500 votes! And his opponent then was his opponent now! Let's go!

  • 2018: D+2, 2016: R+1, 2014: D+0.7

  • Currently working on a bill to expand Medicade

  • This race was decided by just 1000 votes in 2018, which sounds like a lot, but the Republican ran unopposed in 2014! That's a huge swing.

  • 2018: D+1, 2016: R+7, 2014: R-Unopposed

State House

This November, all 120 of the State House seats are up for grabs, and in 2018, Democrats took away the Republican's supermajority which allowed them to push laws like the bathroom bill. 


​Here are 5 candidates you can contribute to.

  • Morgan has pledged not to take money from oil or gas companies throughout her campaign

  • Republicans ran unopposed in this district in 2016 and 2014, and only won by 800 votes when facing a Democratic challenger in 2018.

  • 2018: R+2, 2016: R- Unopposed, 2014: R- Unopposed

  • Hardy unseated a 6-term incumbent in this seat to win her primary

  • Achieved PhD in Social Work from Morgan State University

  • 2018: D+49, 2016: D- Unopposed, 2014: D- Unopposed

  • Batch was elected to the North Carolina State House in 2018, winning the seat by less than 1,000 votes

  • Rep. Batch is the first Black woman to represent her district in North Carolina

  • 2018: D+2, 2016: R+9, 2014: R- Unopposed

  • Hurtado grew up in rural NC as a first generation American

  • Republican opponent Ross won this district unopposed in 2016, but won by just 1% in 2018. Let's push Hurtado past the finish line.

  • ​2018: R+1, 2016: R- Unopposed, 2014: R+13

  • Clark is an advocate for reproductive rights and equity of race, gender identity, and sexual orientation 

  • Christy won this race by just 400 votes in 2018, flipping the seat. Now John Bradford is running for his old seat that he held for multiple terms before '18. Let's go!

  • ​2018: D+1, 2016: R+13, 2014: R+10

  • Hunt's number one priority will be public schools

  • This district was won by Republicans unopposed in 2014, and in 2018 was won by just 80 votes! Let's go!

  • ​2018: D+0.2, 2016: R+13, ​2014: R- Unopposed

U.S Senate

This November, one of North Carolina's U.S. Senate seats are up for grabs. Republicans hold the U.S. Senate by 3 seats. 
​Thom Tillis (R) is in a dead heat with Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham.


Make sure to always mention this race when you work for others; it's state-wide!

  • Running against Thom Tillis (R), Senator since 2015 and historically unpopular in the state

  • Read this article about how Republican opponent Thom Tillis went "full Trump," and is now the Senate's most vulnerable Republican

Governor

This November, the incumbent Governor, Roy Cooper, is up for re-election.

If he stays in office, he will be able to veto maps drawn by the Republican chambers if the GOP keeps their hold on those branches.

This race is so important for North Carolinians and for the country!

  • Running against Dan Forest (R)

  • Cooper leads his opponent in the polls as of now, as a very popular governor. He's a good mention in some of these texts/calls for other candidates down-ballot, as he's very popular in the state.​

  • As a lifelong education, Dr Virginia Cox-Daugherty will make sure our schools get the money they need so we can have smaller class sizes and get our kids back to school safely, and so rural students can get access to broadband.

  • Virginia supports expanding Medicaid, which would give health insurance to over 17,000 North Carolinians. 

  • 2018: R+7, 2016: D- Unopposed, 2014: D- Unopposed
