These are the statewide, legislative, and local candidates running with the union label
North Carolina’s eight Central Labor Councils have made their picks of local, legislative, and congressional candidates running in the March 15th primary, completing a process that began with our endorsement of statewide candidates in January.
Who you vote for is a personal decision, but after reviewing completed questionnaires, conducting interviews, and voting on whom to back, labor recommends these candidates for the March 15th Primary Election. Download the full slate (PDF).
