NRSC Statement on NC Democrats Filing for U.S. Senate Race

Later today, Democrats Erica Smith and Cal Cunningham are expected to file for the North Carolina U.S. Senate race. Despite the Democratic establishment and corporate donors across the country throwing their money behind Cunningham, sitting state Senator Smith’s liberal grassroots campaign continues to lead in the polls.

Liberal New York donors and national Democrats will stop at nothing to buy this seat,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “While Erica Smith leans in on radical Democratic policies like decriminalizing illegal border crossings, Cal Cunningham’s campaign centers around ‘misleading’ voters to hide the truth about his corporate donors or dodging policy positions altogether with empty promises to ‘release a plan later.’ We look forward to seeing whoever survives this Democratic primary rejected by North Carolina voters next November.”
