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.

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.
The scores are based on votes for NC Values’ legislative agenda including:
SB 20 “Care for Women, Children and Families Act”
HB 49 “Parents Bill of Rights”
HB 574 “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act”
HB 808 “Gender Transition/Minors”
HB 823 “Choose Your School, Choose Your Future”
HB 259 Budget, which included funding for Pregnancy Care Centers and Universal Opportunity Scholarships
Legislator scores were also based on override votes and bill sponsorship. Some scores were affected by absences on these key votes. Scores may be accessed at ncvalues.org/scorecard.
The Legislative Scorecard is part of the NC Values’ Voter Toolkit which includes the iVoterGuide survey and endorsements. NC Values will continue to release endorsements throughout the 2024 election cycle.
NC Values Coalition launched its endorsements for the 2024 election, including an endorsement for Fred Von Canon running in North Carolina’s Congressional District 13.
“Fred Von Canon is an authentic conservative with an unwavering commitment to protecting families, growing the economy, securing our borders, restoring parental rights in education and healthcare decisions, and saving unborn babies from abortion violence. Fred will be a leader in Congress who won’t have to be convinced to do the right thing,” said NC Values Coalition Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald. “Coming from a meager background, serving his country in the U.S. Navy, and building a successful corporation headquartered in the 13th Congressional District shows that Fred has the character, work ethic, business experience, common sense beliefs, and commitment to the values that made this country great and make him the best candidate in this race. We know he will stand strong in Congress representing North Carolina families and the district where he lives.”
NC Values’ main focus before early voting is competitive primary races and will continue to release endorsements during the 2024 election season including General Assembly, federal, statewide and school board races. NC Values does not endorse in every race.
