The foundational aim of the Long Leaf Pine Slate is to build progressive power in North Carolina. This means winning a Democratic majority in the General Assembly this year, which really comes down to a numbers game: how do we flip 6 net seats in the state House and 5 in the Senate?
The clearest way is the one we’ve taken: aggressively funding our most flippable, critical-path candidates. We’re incredibly pleased to say that, with your help, we’ve put all of our candidates in a position to stage strong, aggressive campaigns. We are far from finished. But the Republicans are back on their heels, and we’ve forced them to invest heavily in defending these vulnerable seats. The NCGOP is fighting a vicious, dirty, last-ditch defense of their legislative majority. This is just where we want to be.
