This week, the Dan Forest for Governor campaign has launched three new coalitions of supporters. These coalitions bring together people of different backgrounds who are dedicated to helping elect Lt. Governor Forest as governor of North Carolina in 2020.
The three groups announced this week:
Military for Dan Forest.
This coalition includes active-duty servicemembers, veterans, and military families. They support Dan Forest's vision to make North Carolina the No. 1 most military-friendly state in the country. The group is chaired by (Ret.) Col. Ron Rabin, a Vietnam War veteran who earned a Silver Star and Bronze Star in service. He is also a former North Carolina state senator.
Law Enforcement for Dan Forest.
This coalition brings together officers across all types of sworn law enforcement at the local, state and federal level. They support Dan Forest's commitment to the rule of law and unwavering support for the state's law enforcement officers. So far, 50 of the state's sheriffs have formally endorsed Forest's campaign for governor. This group is led by Mike Caskey, a patrol training officer and veteran of one of North Carolina's largest police departments.
Firefighters for Dan Forest.
This coalition includes men and women who put their lives on the line for North Carolina communities every day. They appreciate Forest's respect for the work they do running toward danger, not away from it.
More coalitions are expected to be announced as the campaign progresses.
