Delay the 2022 Primary Election to May 17

I joined my North Carolina congressional delegation colleagues in support of the North Carolina Supreme Court’s decision to delay the 2022 Primary Election to May 17. Read our statement: “North Carolinians deserve fair maps and fair elections, so we strongly support the decision of the state Supreme Court to delay the 2022 Primary Election. The right to vote is the most fundamental right in a democracy, but this sacred right requires fair, free and just elections. Today’s decision is another step on the path to justice.”

Roe v. Wade

Overturning Roe v. Wade would be a blatant attack on reproductive freedom and violate nearly 50 years of legal precedent. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe, many more states in the U.S., including North Carolina, could be emboldened to enact abortion bans, disproportionally hurting women. I have been fighting for women’s rights for decades and in Congress I continue that fight. The House passed the Women’s Health Protection Act to ensure that all people have access to reproductive freedom regardless of where they live in the country. It’s time this bill becomes law.
