RALEIGH, NC — A number of North Carolina leaders are lending their support to Cal Cunningham’s Senate campaign following his decisive victory on Tuesday night.

Today, Former Governor Jim Hunt, State Senator Paul Lowe, and former State Rep. Linda Coleman issued the following statements of support: 

Former North Carolina Governor Jim Hunt: “As a strong education governor, I believe our leaders ought to understand the importance of giving North Carolina children the opportunity to learn and succeed. Cal gets that, and I was tremendously impressed with Cal’s strong support for public education and raising teacher pay in North Carolina. I am supporting him because I know he will push for that in the U.S. Senate and ensure the federal government plays a role in helping our kids have bright futures.” 

State Senator and Chair Of The North Carolina Legislative Black Caucus Paul Lowe: “This election represents a pivotal moment in our nation and our state: will we continue down this path or chart a new course? Cal Cunningham will bring new leadership to Washington, and support a North Carolina first agenda to invest in public education, expand access to health care, and build an economy that works for everyone. Cal will make our state proud in the Senate and put this seat back to work for us.” 

Former State Representative Linda Coleman: “I’m thrilled to endorse Cal Cunningham as he steps up to serve our state. As a legislator and an Army veteran, Cal made the choice to put service over self time and again. In the Senate, he will always make North Carolina his top priority. From expanding access to affordable health care to investing in our public schools and teachers, North Carolina’s families can count on Cal.”

The support builds on a growing list of North Carolinians who have lended their voice to Cal’s campaign, including dozens of local leaders and organizations.
