Raleigh – Equality NC PAC is proud to announce that 39 candidates endorsed by the organization had won their primaries.

ENC Executive Director Kendra R. Johnson said:

Last night's results are a decisive victory for pro-equality candidates. Nearly three-quarters of our slate won their primary. We're excited to see the progress that fabulous candidates will make to building racial justice and LGBTQ+ equality in their communities.

We wanted to uplift some stats on our amazing candidates:

  • 39 candidates won primaries
  • 5 out LGBTQ+ candidates won primaries
  • Those 39 candidates join 44 endorsed candidates running unopposed in the primary to create a slate of 83 candidates, with more endorsements coming as the cycle continues.

It's been a hard fought campaign–and it's not over yet. The general election is coming up this fall, and we need all hands on deck to protect our civil rights and advance policies which promote justice and equity.

Our full list of endorsed candidates can be viewed here.
