Take Action North Carolina

Senate (Beasley), NC-01 (Davis), NC-13 (Nickel)

Cheri Beasley cruised to victory in the Democratic primary for the open North Carolina Senate seat. Her November opponent, Ted Budd, has Trump’s backing, is a staunch anti-choice candidate, and says, “The Senate is our last line of defense against the Left's woke, socialist agenda.” If elected, Beasley, former state Supreme Court chief justice, will be the first Black senator from North Carolina.

In House races, Donald Davis NC 01 won the May 17 primary with 63% of the Democratic vote. Davis had been endorsed the current Congressman G.K. Butterfield, who had decided against running for reelection. Davis faces Sandy Smith, a Republican businesswoman who uses the far-right dog whistler “America First” in her campaign literature.

In NC 13, Democrat and current State Senator Wiley Nickel will face Republican Bo Hines in November. Nickel is a criminal defense attorney who touts his record on climate solutions, wealth inequality, and human rights. Hines, 26, and former college football player, lives miles away from NC 13, is loaded with ambition and no political experience.

NC-01 is rated Lean D by Cook Political Report, and NC-13 is rated Republican Tossup.
