and over 50 respected leaders

By Kyle Gott
Today, Alma Adams released her list of endorsements from organizations and community leaders. They include progressive organizations, women’s groups, organized labor, medical associations, and over 50 respected community leaders.  This is the latest wave of momentum the Alma Adams campaign has received after releasing a poll showing her leading the field in the 12th Congressional District race. Adams leads by +7% over the entire field.

State Auditor Beth Wood stated, “Alma Adams is a proven leader with integrity. She is someone who will fight for what she believes in. She doesn’t play political games, she does what is right. Adams delivers what she promises, and you can count on her to get the job done.  She is exactly the type of leader we need in Congress right now, and that’s why I proudly endorse her in North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District race.”

Wood continued, “And please know that I don’t take my endorsements lightly. I have only ever endorsed two other candidates in my career, but I feel so strongly about Alma Adams that I needed to make it known. I urge everyone to support this remarkable woman in her bid for Congress. Adams will make our state and our country proud.”

Former Lt. Governor Dennis Wicker added, “Alma Adams has been a tireless worker and champion for her constituents in the North Carolina General Assembly. I am confident she will take that same work ethic to Congress and move North Carolina forward.”

State Senator Earline Parmon stated, "Representative Alma Adams is the right person for the 12th Congressional district. Not only is she a strong voice on all of the right issues, she has been a leader and has fought for policies on Education, Healthcare, the Environment, Women's health, and a livable wage. As an experienced policy maker she will hit the ground working on behalf of the citizens of the 12th Congressional district and North Carolina." 

Alma Adams excitedly responded, “This is another great day for our campaign. I am honored to have earned the support and trust of so many worthy organizations and respected leaders. With their help, I will go to Washington and stand up to the Tea Party extremists who are hurting our families here in North Carolina. We are going to win this election and send a strong voice for our working people and our families to Congress.”
