Opportunity: Who We Are, Who We Support

Independence Day provides a moment to reflect on our great freedoms, and how by exercising them, we make them more of a reality for all of us.  Now or Never NC supports State Legislative candidates running in the most winnable races who strongly support public education, redistricting reform, voter access, and who have an appreciation for local government.  We support candidates who can help our next Governor sustain a veto of harmful legislation like HB2, and restore and strengthen our State’s deserved reputation as a beacon in the South and leader in the nation.  We are Independents, Democrats, and Republicans seeking balance and sanity for our State. In 2015, we traveled the State in search of great candidates, and this Spring we introduced you to extraordinary North Carolinians running in four NC House and two NC Senate districts that literally span from Murphy to Manteo, that represent a strong first wave of winnable races in 2016. On this Independence Day, while very hard work lies ahead, we nonetheless see great opportunity in an additional wave of highly competitive races, to help wash away the deep lines in the sand drawn by our current State Legislative leadership.  Briefly in the coming weeks, while we also begin final planning for the Fall, we intend to introduce you to candidates running in that next wave of competitive races.  Please stay tuned for details.  In the meantime, Happy Independence Day! To learn more about Now or Never NC, please see our Mission Statement, Guiding Principles in Supporting Candidates, and review our slate of Endorsed Candidates, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  Thank you.
