Democrat Candidates for U.S. Senate Continue Lurch to the Far Left

Press Release:

State Sen. Erica Smith Endorses Medicare For All And The Green New Deal, Cal Cunningham Refuses To Answer

    Raleigh, NC     The Democrat candidates in the North Carolina Senate race already want to impeach President Trump, and Sunday night they marched further to the left, expressing their most explicit support to date for the radical socialist agenda coming out of the Democrat presidential primary. During a left wing-forum, state Senator Erica Smith and Mecklenburg County Commissioner Trevor Fuller both stumped for the North Carolina Democrat Party endorsed-Medicare for All and Green New Deal, and restricting the Second Amendment rights of law abiding gun owners. Cal Cunningham, who refuses to take a position on anything but impeaching President Trump, was curiously absent from the event.

    "Sunday night's socialist forum made it clear that there is no difference between the radical liberals running for president and the Democrat Senate field in North Carolina," stated NCGOP spokeswoman Sasha Duncan. "Cal Cunningham has called ideas like eliminating employer-based health insurance, raising taxes on middle class Americans, and taking away the Second Amendment rights of law abiding gun owners 'refreshing.' His silence on these economy-killing policies speaks volumes."
