We’re behind.

I have to make up the difference ASAP!    I need to check in, John — With only hours left to meet our $20,000 end-of-quarter fundraising goal, I’m scrambling. Falling short of our first quarterly goal is NOT how we want to start off 2023, John, so I’m coming to you with an urgent requ…

My promise to President Biden

I need your help to keep it.    Hi John, There’s nothing better than sharing my pride in North Carolina. Yesterday, it was a great pleasure to join President Biden in Durham to talk about his administration’s plans to build a brighter future here in NC and across the country. Preside…

This is a longer email. Please read to the end.

We need to elect more Democrats to keep our progress going.    John, this month, Roy delivered a HUGE win for North Carolina, and we want to tell you what we need to do to keep up the progress… but first, we have a quick request to make: The end of the first financial quarter of 2023 …

We have passed Medicaid expansion!

Bipartisanship works.    This is a big deal, John. I just signed the bill that will expand Medicaid in North Carolina, which will help 600,000 more North Carolinians receive coverage. We’ve worked hard on this for my entire time as governor, and I’m grateful to the advocates across t…

rigged maps mean rigged elections

3 quick things:    John — Partisan gerrymandering could UNDERMINE democracy in North Carolina in elections to come. Here’s what you need to know: The new right-wing majority on the North Carolina state Supreme Court just reopened a CRITICAL case that previously struck Raleigh Republi…

🔵 North Carolina 🔵

Just one quick question for you.    The 2024 election season is almost upon us. Roy is committed to delivering our state for President Biden and Democrats up and down the ballot, but he needs to know if you’re with him. John: Are you ready to help Roy turn NC blue next year? YES NO…

Please read this email before midnight tonight.

A quick message from me.   Hi John, I’ll keep this brief. Asking you time and again for your support may get annoying to you, and for that, I apologize. But if we’re going to flip North Carolina blue in the presidential election for the first time since 2008, then we can’t get complacen…

Urgent: Add your name in support of fair maps in North Carolina

With the future of fair maps on the line, we need everyone to make their voices heard today.    John — Today, the North Carolina Supreme Court — with a newly-elected Republican majority — is considering a case to reverse last year’s decision to outlaw partisan redistricting. It’s no s…

SIGN ON: Support a clean energy future >>>

We still have work to do.    John — Climate change is an imminent, existential threat to our planet. Yet too many far-right legislators in Raleigh and Washington, D.C. are still ignoring it — or even playing it off as a hoax. Meanwhile, my administration is doing the work to invest in…

fair lines + fair elections

Our voters deserve to have their voices heard.    John — There’s nothing more fundamental to our democracy than the idea that every one of us should have a fair, equal say in our representation. But when partisan gerrymandering and voter suppression come into play, some votes count mo…

And why this number is important to us:    $29 is the average donation made to emails like this one in 2023. $29 is how we are powering Roy’s work to help elect North Carolina Democrats and preserve our progress in our state. $29 is a number Roy is deeply proud of. It represents how g…

I’m fed up.

It’s time to pass Medicaid expansion. Our neighbors are counting on us.    John — I’m tired of waiting. Without immediate action, roughly 300,000 North Carolina residents will lose access to their health care coverage unless Republicans move NOW to pass Medicaid expansion. A federal p…

The state of North Carolina is bright and looking to the future.    Hello John, Just a few minutes ago, I finished the State of the State address to North Carolina. You can watch it here if you missed seeing it live. If you weren’t able to watch, here’s the gist of my message: Over an…

An update from me on Medicaid expansion:

We have to move ASAP.    John — I want you to hear it from me. Legislative leaders have agreed to expand Medicaid in North Carolina! We’ve been working hard on this for years, and this is a crucial step forward. But we need the legislature to act NOW. Every single month we go without …

Our biggest challenge yet:

We’re tackling it how we’ve tackled every challenge before — together.    John — In just over 24 hours, we are going to hit our biggest fundraising deadline of the year so far. And right now, we’re falling behind. Can you contribute to help close the gap? If you've saved your payment …

gerrymandering + voter suppression

That’s their plan.    Here’s the deal: The North Carolina GOP is so power-hungry that they’re willing to go to any lengths necessary to “win” elections no matter what the voters want. Their plan? Gerrymandering so that Republican candidates have a massive advantage and passing anti-vo…

why we’re still asking for your help

Grateful to count on you!    John — Since Roy won’t be running for governor in 2024, you may be wondering why we still send out these fundraising emails. Well, even though Roy is not on the ballot, he’s still going to be campaigning hard for Democrats up and down the ticket. And that …

We can deliver for working North Carolinians

Regarding the state budget.    John — When our government works, we can make this state work better for North Carolinians. But we can’t make progress when some politicians put the interests of the powerful and wealthy first. As we start negotiating the state budget for the upcoming fi…

It’s not about protecting kids. It’s about placating extremists.

Blatant political pandering.    John — LGBTQ+ students, families, and public school teachers are under attack. North Carolina’s GOP legislators just announced plans to pass their very own version of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill — a law that has silenced teachers from having age-appr…

This is a longer email, but it’s important, so I hope you’ll read to the end.    John — In the five years since the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, teenage survivors have turned into lifelong activists. They took up a cause that never should have…
