NC National Organization for Women (NOW) Announces 2018 General Election PAC Endorsements
Raleigh, N.C. – On Oct 7, Gailya Paliga, president of NC National Organization for Women, announced the organization’s Political Action Committee (PAC) endorsements for statewide offices in the 2018 General Election, and also national NOW PAC’s endorsements in Congress.
NC NOW PAC announced candidate endorsements for the N.C. Supreme Court, N.C. Court of Appeals, and both chambers of the N.C. General Assembly. The national NOW PAC has endorsed 7 federal candidates for Congressional races.
“We are excited to announce our support for candidates who have demonstrated a true commitment to women through their words and/or actions. More women ran this year than before. Our 2018 endorsement list covers a whole page. However, the state and federal NOW PACs endorse based on support for our issues rather than gender of candidates,” said Gailya Paliga, President of NC NC NOW and the NC NOW PAC.
“A record number of women ran for the NC state legislature in the 2018 primaries. In 2014, the last election year without a presidential election, 24 women ran for the state legislature. In 2018, 119 women ran for the state House and Senate; only 43 were incumbents. “ This is according to Robin Davis, VP of Legislation.
