I’m in this fight for the long haul

I am excited to announce my candidacy for North Carolina's 118th State House District. Our movement is committed to continuing the fight. We are standing up to the radical right and putting our democracy first.

Are you with me? Chip in $3 now to power the next phase of this campaign.

We've spent the last several months watching as Madison Cawthorn abandoned his constituents, repeatedly voting against important legislation and switching Congressional races twice in attempts to hide from accountability. He refuses to answer for his behavior and his ignorance and contempt for our communities is part of the painful lesson we've learned of the politician choosing his voters.

And while Cawthorn is more than happy to abandon the working families of western North Carolina, I'm not going anywhere.

The people of Haywood and Madison Counties deserve a representative in Raleigh who will prioritize their needs over radical ideologies. I've spent my life in service to my community and to my country. When I left the Army after two combat deployments to Iraq, I immediately went to work in my community volunteering with my fellow veterans and assisting with disaster relief across the country.

the threats we're seeing to our democracy are real and this fight isn't about one election or one extremist congressman. We've got to change how we engage in politics from the ground up. That's exactly what we're going to do, right here in North Carolina. This year, we need to flip just two seats in the State House to gain the majority and get some real work done for North Carolina's working families, and the 118th is one of our best chances to make it happen.

Every week I'm going door to door, neighborhood to neighborhood, meeting voters where they are, listening to their concerns and earning their votes.

I'm going to raise an army of volunteers and run a grassroots effort the likes of which North Carolina hasn't seen in a long time.

And I'm going to do it all with your help. I know times are tough, but please, chip in $3 now and jumpstart our campaign.

As always, I'm proud to be in this fight with you, and excited to take our bold movement all the way to Raleigh.

Let's go!

Josh
