Cal Connected Virtually Or Safely In-Person With Voters In Forsyth, Hoke, Johnston, Orange, Wake & Wilson Counties

RALEIGH, NC – With less than three weeks until Election Day and early voting beginning this week, Cal traveled the state virtually and safely in-person to meet with North Carolinians and hear about the issues that are top of mind from health care to getting the COVID-19 pandemic under control. 

Here’s a look at Cal’s campaign stops this week.

On Saturday, Cal traveled to Hoke County for a drive-in breakfast to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their community and the urgency of closing the health care coverage gap.

On Sunday, Cal spoke to the Young Democrats of Forsyth County on the importance of this election: “We have to think about this election as our one, and our only, opportunity to course correct.”

On Monday, Cal joined Mebane Mayor Ed Hooks, President of the NCDP Native American Caucus Crystal Cavalier and local indigenous activists to honor Indigenous People’s Day in Mebane.

As the Supreme Court Confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett began this week, Cal joined Yasmin Radjy from Planned Parenthood and Emily Mellencamp Smith from NARAL on Wednesday to discuss women’s health and Tillis’ support of a SCOTUS nominee who would turn back the clock on women’s health. 

This week, Cal also spoke to the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the Winston-Salem Black Chamber of Commerce, and the North Carolina Association of Educators.

And as early voting kicked off in North Carolina on Thursday, Cal traveled to Fuquay-Varina to cast his vote, drop off supplies and meet with voters. 

Thursday night, Cal spoke with the Wilson County Democrats to talk about what’s at stake in this election: “This campaign has been about and will continue to be about fighting for those 1.7 million North Carolinians with pre-existing conditions because, you know, Thom Tillis, will not stop until he eliminates the Affordable Care Act.”

Cal has held virtual or in-person town halls in all 100 counties of the state, honoring his commitment to go places where candidates don’t always go and his supporters have followed suit. From Murphy to Manteo, Cal has North Carolinians fired up to lend their support to his campaign with 56 donors in Murphy, 49 in Manteo, and 55,000 in-between.
