We’re lightening up our event invitation this time, but we hope it makes the point: Representatives John Ager & Brian Turner stepped up for our state and nation at a time of immense need.
In 2014, after the election of Legislative Supermajorities that steamrolled (former moderate Charlotte Mayor) Governor McCrory, candidates Ager and Turner - and Gale Adcock - developed the blueprint used in ensuing cycles to flip seats and emphatically Break the Supermajority.
After four terms of exemplary service, Representatives Ager & Turner are retiring, and have thankfully recruited phenomenal successors to help retain their seats.
On June 22, please join us as we honor Ager & Turner as Trailblazing Defenders of Democracy!
Date: Wednesday, June 22 (porch party)
Address: 1804 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC
RSVP: Contribute below, email [email protected], or call 919.283.4819
We’re grateful that House Deputy Democratic Leader Gale Adcock, who is running for NC Senate in 2022, helps emcee festivities.
It’s a special moment, as Representatives Adcock, Ager, and Turner are our three Now or Never NC alumni from the inaugural Class of 2014.
Please join us to salute their service and raise crucial funds to help our 2022 endorsed candidates in the ongoing political fight for our very democracy.
Thank you.Sunday, May 15, 2022 at 07:00 PMVirtual
As the U.S. Supreme Court contemplates rolling back decades of progress by overturning Roe v. Wade, we must prepare for the fight over reproductive rights and other liberties to move to our State Legislature.
One week from tonight, and just two days before the May Primary, Representatives Julie von Haefen & Rachel Hunt lead a live Zoom discussion on these threats and how to win the battle in North Carolina.
Representative Julie von Haefen (D-Wake) is an attorney and former President of the Wake County PTA. She’s seeking re-election. She and her husband, Dr. Roger von Haefen, a professor at NC State University, moved to Apex in 2005. They have three children, all of whom are students in the Wake County Public School System.
Representative Rachel Hunt (D-Mecklenburg) is the daughter of former First Lady Carolyn Hunt and Governor Jim Hunt. She’s an attorney and business owner who’s also certified in College Counseling/Education. She’s running for State Senate. She and her husband Olav live in Raintree and are the proud parents of Katia and Jonas.
Please join us for this important virtual event and support efforts to maintain valued rights for all North Carolinians.Monday, December 13, 2021 at 05:00 PMRialto Theatre
We’re grateful that 2018 alumni Senator Sydney Batch & Representative Terence Everitt headline our Holiday Social at The Rialto on Monday, December 13, at 5pm. They’ll share timely insights on new legislative districts and the status of legal challenges to the new maps. The social is followed by a a showing of the modern holiday classic, Elf.
Senator Batch & Representative Everitt are true advocates for the people of Wake County, both inside and outside the Legislature:
- For over a decade, Sydney has served as a family law attorney, child welfare advocate, and social worker. During the last legislative session, she sponsored or cosponsored 48 bills, ranging from legislation to expand affordable healthcare to a bill ensuring clean drinking water for all North Carolinians.
- Like Sydney, Terence is the parent of young children and runs a law practice, where he works on behalf of other small businesses. He’s a key proponent for public education funding, better teacher pay, a cleaner environment, quality health care for all, and nonpartisan redistricting.

Now or Never NC was founded to help elect forward-looking State Legislative challengers to get North Carolina back on track, and to focus on actual solutions to the pressing issues facing North Carolinians.
Over four election cycles, we’ve honed and executed new tactics to help empower top challengers early, many of whom win - thanks to great candidates, their campaigns, and you.
Due to delays with redistricting, districts will likely remain in flux until at least late this year. For much of 2021, we’ll amplify the work of our many alumni and of grassroots voter registration efforts throughout the State.
To that end, we invite you for an interactive discussion of grassroots tactics and goals for the 2022 election cycle with new NC Democratic Party Chair, Dr. Bobbie Richardson, a former educator and administrator and former 3-term Legislator representing Franklin & Nash Counties.
We’re grateful that former Congressman and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Bob Etheridge helps lead the conversation. Etheridge and Richardson worked together in public education.
There’s no donation required to participate in this virtual event.

P.S. We’re also pleased that Aylett Colston joins to provide the first in a series of brief updates on the status of redistricting.Wednesday, March 03, 2021 at 06:30 PM
From the beginning, Now or Never NC has been dedicated to putting our State on a forward-looking path, by helping elect grounded, sensible candidates who will use their life experiences to work in the best interests of North Carolinians.
In 2014, our first election cycle, we supported 3 promising House candidates, all of whom won: Representatives Gale Adcock, John Ager, and Brian Turner.
We’re grateful that these Wake & Buncombe County Legislators continue to serve with distinction. Representative Adcock was recently elected by her peers as Deputy Democratic Leader in the State House.
Gale, John, and Brian will share insights on the most recent election as well as the current state of affairs at the General Assembly and in North Carolina. We’re also grateful that Charlotte-based political veteran Douglas Wilson will join the conversation, to help further discussion on practical politics for the 2022 election cycle. He’s served as Deputy Executive Director of the NC Democratic Party and Advisor for the Biden-Harris Coordinated Campaign, and previously served on the campaign staffs of future President Obama (2008) and Senator Hagan.

Please join us. Thank you.We’re excited to announce that they’ll be joined by Democratic State House leader Representative Deb Butler and 15 top State Legislative challengers. Rep. Butler (D-Wilmington) is perhaps best known for her valiant "I will not yield" response to the Republican’s egregious override of the Governor’s budget veto on the morning of September 11, 2019. The sham vote was called at almost the very moment we had been attacked as a nation, and while the Governor led State 9/11 observances. We will not yield either. Now is the time we restore and defend NC’s forward-looking trajectory, for generations to come.
P.S. This month marks our seventh anniversary. Our track record is clear: we’ve helped flip 15 State House seats, thanks to phenomenal candidates, their campaigns, and you. In 2020, we intend to emphatically add to that success by helping flip both State Legislative chambers.
Because of the involvement of federal officeholders in this event, we are asking for donations of up to $2,800 per election, from any individual. We are not asking for funds from corporations, labor organizations, or other federally prohibited sources.Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 10:00 AM

In 2020, some districts won remain highly competitive, in particular those of Now or Never NC alumni Christy Clark, James Gailliard, Joe Sam Queen, and Ray Russell.
In three of these races, the prior incumbent is attempting to regain a seat, and in the remaining race, Ray Russell (the “Ray of Ray’s Weather”) faces a challenge from a first-time candidate with the same first name.
That’s why we welcome alumni for our next Empower Hour.
