NC Values Coalition released its first endorsements for North Carolina’s General Assembly primary races and two more candidates for US Congress.

“NC Values spends hours on research, conducting candidate interviews and evaluating iVoterGuide surveys so we can make well-informed decisions about endorsements. We are proud to recommend this next round of candidates and are confident they will stand up for issues important to North Carolina voters who care about family values,” said NC Values Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald.

The following candidates have been endorsed by NC Values:

  • George Cleveland HD 14
  • Yvonne McLeod HD 25
  • Michael Schietzelt HD 35
  • Dr. Ralph Carter HD 48
  • Mark Brody HD 55
  • Jonathan Almond HD 73
  • Dr. Grant Campbell HD 83
  • Blair Eddins HD 94
  • Dean Arp HD 110
  • Paul Brintley HD 111
  • Vicki Harry SD 13
  • Jaime Daniell SD 42
  • Laurie Buckhout CD 1

NC Values also recently endorsed Congressional candidates Fred Von Canon (CD 13) and Mark Harris (CD 8). NC Values’ main focus before early voting is competitive primary races, and it will continue to release endorsements throughout the 2024 election season including school board races. NC Values does not endorse in every race.

In addition to endorsements, NC Values just released its 2023 Legislative Scorecard as part of its Voter Toolkit. NC Values also partners with iVoterGuide, a digital voters’ guide, which is scheduled to be released on February 7.
