We need economic policies that promote sustainable economic development and create jobs that pay a living wage.

I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every North Carolinian. Our laws should promote equality and justice regardless of who we are.

This state’s natural resources belong to all of us. We need conservation and protections to safeguard our common environmental heritage.

We need equitable funding for our public schools so every child gets a quality education regardless of their zip code and so teachers can earn at least a middle-class living.

I will uphold the US Constitution, including the 2nd Amendment. At the same time, there are common-sense gun safety laws we can, and should, all agree on.

North Carolina must expand Medicaid and close the coverage gap by accepting the federal funds already set aside for our state.
