Dear fellow voters,

 

I know you were shocked as I was Sept. 11 when the N.C. House of Representatives held a surprise vote to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s budget veto. Democratic members and the media were told there would be no votes taken; in fact, Republican Speaker Tim Moore convened the session and brought forth the vote on the veto, which passed with a 55 – 9 majority (with only 64 of 120 members present).

Congratulations to Allen Thomas, former mayor of Greenville, on his victory in the NC-03 special congressional primary on Tuesday night! We’ll be fighting for him 100% as he faces the winner of the Republican primary runoff (which will be held in July) in the general election on September 10.

2019 NC-03 Candidate Forum

The Craven County Democratic Party hosted a forum on Monday night April 8th for the Democratic candidates running in the NC 3rd Congressional District special election. Five of the six candidates for the Democratic nomination to finish the term of Walter Jones, Jr. were in attendance, discussing their plans on a broad range of issues including health care, the economy, protecting our eastern North Carolina shoreline, voting rights, and providing constituent services to the whole of the district.
