Now or Never NC welcomes Blair Reeves

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Raleigh – Now or Never NC, a volunteer-driven, independent political action committee dedicated to electing progressive candidates to North Carolina’s State Legislature, welcomes new team member Blair Reeves, creator of Long Leaf Pine Slate, a highly successful online fundraising project.

The immediate goal is to further propel top State Legislative challengers to help create a new majority in the 2020 elections.  Now or Never NC’s new grassroots, social media fundraising effort will utilize the moniker Longleaf Slate. 

Now or Never NC member Mark Granville stated:

“We welcome Blair Reeves, whose leading-edge work creating the Long Leaf Pine Slate has helped transform North Carolina political fundraising.  Now or Never NC amplifies the work of top challengers who are committed to the causes of public education, nonpartisan Redistricting Reform, voting rights, and have an appreciation for the role of local government. The addition of Mr. Reeves turbo charges our continued efforts to elect progressive candidates in North Carolina’s most competitive state legislative races in 2020.”

Blair Reeves offered this statement on the opportunity to join Now or Never NC:

“In state legislative campaigns, mostly unknown candidates must constantly compete with well-entrenched incumbents for donors and visibility.  Now or Never NC has done tremendous work supporting these candidates to help level the playing field and I respect their track record.  I’m eager to combine our strengths and join forces to most effectively get North Carolina back on a progressive trajectory and return fair elections, good government, and honest leadership to Raleigh.”  

Now or Never NC was founded in Raleigh in 2014, and has been a key, early supporter of many of the new progressive State Legislators elected in North Carolina over the past 3 election cycles.  For more information visit
