North Carolina State AFL-CIO Announces Endorsed 2020 Candidates

Slate of politicians fights for working people 

(Raleigh, N.C., Dec. 10, 2019)—The North Carolina State AFL-CIO is proud to announce 16 candidates it has endorsed in the 2020 elections—politicians who are dedicated to fighting for working people. 

Last week, the state labor federation Committee on Political Education approved the 16 candidates recommended by a statewide advisory candidate screening committee, which was comprised of more than 60 union leaders who represent working people across North Carolina.

“This year’s crop of candidates brings a breadth of knowledge, dedication, and can-do spirit to the labor movement that is unmatched,” said MaryBe McMillan, President of the North Carolina AFL-CIO. “Working people across North Carolina are standing up and fighting to make our voices heard. We are proud to support candidates who are willing to stand alongside us and fight to make our state a better place for working people.”

During the day-and-a-half meeting in Raleigh, the advisory committee reviewed completed questionnaires and interviewed more than two dozen candidates.

The following are statewide candidates endorsed by the North Carolina State AFL-CIO in the 2020 Primary:
