NC VALUES COALITION’S ELECTION WORK INFLUENCES STATEWIDE RESULTS AND NOW READIES FOR LEGISLATIVE SESSION
NC Values Coalition expressed enthusiasm regarding the General Election results, as conservatives dominated in North Carolina, sweeping statewide judicial races, securing a supermajority in the Senate and a working super-majority in the House, winning the US Senate seat and keeping Congressional seats.
“We are encouraged the majority of North Carolina voters have sided with conservative values , and we congratulate all those conservative candidates who won their elections, especially Senator-elect Ted Budd,” said NC Values Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald. “NC Values has worked hard vetting and supporting conservative candidates and educating voters about candidate positions, issues and the importance of this election. We look forward to working with incumbents and new legislators on our legislative agenda.”
Sixty-nine of 81 NC Values Coalition endorsed candidates won, not including school board candidates across the state. All six statewide judicial candidates promoted by NC Values won their elections.
“Running for office is a tremendous sacrifice, and we want to thank everyone who ran, and congratulate our endorsed candidates on their victories. We have enjoyed getting to know new candidates during our endorsement process, and we know the fresh perspectives they bring will make this an exciting and productive legislative session,” said Fitzgerald.
NC Values Coalition is a statewide influencer on elections and this cycle launched a statewide get out the vote effort which included targeting pro-life voters across the state with direct mail, publishing articles about the importance of voting and various races, and educating its supporters with endorsements and a myriad of elections communications. NC Values’ sister organization, Institute for Faith & Family, sponsored a digital campaign across the state to motivate pro-life voters to get out and vote. The organization also partners with iVoterGuide to bring voters a reliable resource with information about which candidates share their values, and offers a detailed Voter Toolkit, outlining information about voting and the election.
“NC Values has been paving the way to elect candidates to office who will be leaders on our pro-life, pro-family, and pro-religious freedom values on the state and federal level,” said Fitzgerald. “We are excited about the multitude of victories last night and the opportunities those victories represent. We are fine-tuning our legislative agenda and are ready to make a big impact this legislative session.”
