Email Letter – Cal Gets It

Friend,

Cal has pledged to be a champion for all North Carolina families as our Lieutenant Governor. We know he means what he says. He’s a person who acts on his commitments and has been a partner on some of the most important issues of our time.

Please join us in supporting his campaign.

We have been leaders, founders and board members of organizations that advance the rights and causes of women and families.

We have known Cal and his wife Elizabeth for many years. Time and again they have said “yes” when we have called. Time and again Cal has expressed his commitment as a volunteer, a supporter, and a friend. They have been “trailblazers” and partners in our work to elect pro-choice Democratic women to the General Assembly.

In this campaign, Cal is speaking up for our rights to make our own family planning decisions, equal pay for equal work, and the Equal Rights Amendment. He is championing early childhood education, access to health care and the rich quality of life that makes North Carolina a great place to raise a family.

Cal has also prosecuted perpetrators of sexual assault and domestic violence and funded non-profits that support those who have been affected. He has been a champion for quality public schools. He was an early and leading voice against writing discrimination into our State Constitution, and he worked for repeal of the discriminatory “HB2”.

The fact is, Cal gets it. We are supporting him for Lieutenant Governor because we trust him to continue to be a partner and ally. We ask you to join us in supporting him too.

Signed,

Betty Ray McCain
