Thank You!

The result last night was not what any of us wanted, nor one many of us expected. However, our work for a better and more inclusive North Carolina continues.

I want to thank all the poll observers, poll greeters, women-to-women post card writers, canvassers, phone bankers, early vote coordinators, precinct officers, donors, candidates and elected officials who made our success in Orange County possible. Because of you we were able to reach a record number of voters and because of you we increased turn out during early voting and on Election Day.

While we’re all disappointed in the result for Senator Hagan, last night’s election showed that North Carolina remains in play for the fifth election cycle in a row. We are truly a battle ground state and there is much work to be done. We have a presidential race, a governor’s race, and yes, another U.S. Senate race in 2016.

Take time off and relax, because soon we’ll be getting back to work!

Onward!

Matt Hughes, Chair
