The North Carolina Democratic Party’s press tour will reach voters across the state to localize President Biden and Democrats’ work over the last nine months to deliver for North Carolina’s working class and hold Republicans accountable for their opposition. The tour begins Monday, October 18. 
 
Over the past nine months, President Biden and Democrats have been hard at work passing the American Rescue Plan and finishing work on passing the Build Back Better agenda, historic investments that will create jobs, cut costs for working families and keep the economic recovery going. Meanwhile, the GOP have stood in the way and continue to prove time and again that there is no opportunity to help North Carolinians that trumps their singular goal of obstruction for political gain. If Ted Budd, Pat McCrory, or Mark Walker were in the U.S. Senate, North Carolinians can count on more of the same.

Raleigh, NC – “It’s a sad day for us all when parents put 50 children outside the Lt. Governor’s office to protest an issue I’m confident these children barely understand” said Tami Fitzgerald, President, North Carolina Values Coalition.

“Lt. Governor Robison is more than a breath of fresh air for North Carolina” Fitzgerald continued, “he is an atypical politician who speaks the truth, often at great risk to himself, as he fights for the our state’s citizens and our children. Thank God someone has the courage to take up that fight and we support him one hundred percent.”

Fitzgerald is referring to the recent protests organized outside the Lt. Governor’s office in Raleigh.The protests were ignited by a video of Robinson where he refers to several books in school libraries that showed explicit photos of homosexual sex acts performed by young people. Robinson’s use of the word “filth” was making reference to the books, not members of the LGBTQ community, as the media and the LGBTQ community claim. In a subsequent video produced by Robison he made certain to clarify the word “filth” was directed at the books, not members of the gay or lesbian community, yet the protests persist.

Fitzgerald continued, “I know Mark Robison both personally and professionally and I know he is a fierce defender of our rights, everyone’s rights, and a compassionate man. The attacks on him are baseless and wholly unfair. Has anyone noticed that not one single protester’s sign showed the actual graphic sexual images Robinson is attacking? The simple fact that the images are not on full display by the protesters should tell you something.”

Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement on H.R. 3755, the Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act:

 

“Any attack that targets the unborn tears the moral fabric of this great country. H.R. 3755 is nothing more than a partisan smokescreen intended to obscure a radical, pro-abortion agenda that eliminates nearly all pro-life protections for the unborn on both the state and federal levels. In short, this bill ignores the humanity of unborn children and their mothers while fast-tracking the use of barbaric abortion procedures.

 

“The unborn deserve nothing less than staunch advocates who will rise to the occasion and defend them from brazen attacks such as this. In the People’s House, I’m proud to serve as their voice and I will always work tirelessly to defend their right to life. God bestowed upon us the gift of life, and it must always be respected.”

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Democratic Party says it's started running a television ad criticizing Republican leaders at the General Assembly for passing laws that hurt women on issues from abortion and child care to Medicaid and the public schools.

 

The state party said Tuesday the 60-second commercial is running on cable TV in the Charlotte and Raleigh markets. A party spokesman declined to say how much money is being spent on the ad. An email sent to party supporters asked for more donations to keep the ad running.

 

The ad features Governor Beverly Perdue, state legislators and former Cabinet secretary and longtime party activist Betty McCain, who said "the GOP has declared war on women." The ad includes footage of Republican House leaders Thom Tillis and Paul Stam.
