Trump won this state in 2016 with just 3.7% more votes than Hillary Clinton, or roughly 175,000 votes out of more than 4.5 million votes cast in the state. More than 2.6 million North Carolinans did not vote in that election, including 400,000 young people, aged 18-25, or more than twice the number that could have changed the outcome in that state in 2016. More than 500,000 young people are additionally able to vote in 2020, having turned 18 since the 2016 election.
If you live in North Carolina, your vote is critical to our survival. Voting for a third party or not voting at all is the same is giving your vote to Trump in this state.

Democrat Cal Cunningham is challenging Republican incumbent Thom Tillis for the North Carolina Senate seat. This is a seat the Democrats absolutely have to win in order to re-take control of the Senate and prevent Mitch McConnell from blocking any legislation that a Biden administration would seek to pass.
Democrats must gain at least four more seats in order to control the Senate and its agenda. This is a key target seat for the Democrats. However, just as Senator Tillis recently contracted COVID-19 at a White House event, Cal Cunningham admitted to having an extramarital affair. It is unclear how either of these revelations will affect the vote in North Carolina.
The truth of the matter is that this race is not about Tillis or Cunningham. Its about who controls the Senate and whether the next President and Congress will be able to pass legislation and make changes over the next four years that are essential to our survival as a nation and as a planet.
A vote for Cal Cunningham is a vote for survival!

The best we can hope for in 2020 at the Presidential and Senate levels is to get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell so that we will at least survive the next four years. But in the medium term, we need to elect politicians who support the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, the Nuclear Ban Treaty and other real, sustainable solutions to the global threats facing us all.
Luckily, we already have over 100 such politicians in the House of Representatives. We need to make sure they get re-elected, and we need to elect more of them!
If you live in one of these US Congressional Districts, you have a progressive member of Congress to support!
District 12 – Adams
