Governor Roy Cooper endorses Wiley Nickel for NC Senate District 16

Cary, NC– In a statement released this week Governor Roy Cooper said, “I’m excited to endorse Wiley Nickel for state Senate. Adding, “I know Wiley will join me as we fight to give our teachers and students the support they need. Wiley will always put North Carolina families before politics and no one will work harder to end the gerrymandering stain that has plagued our state for far too long.”

In response to this most recent endorsement, Wiley Nickel said, “‘I’m so proud to have the endorsement and support of Governor Roy Cooper. I look forward to working with him in the NC Senate to improve our public schools and to protect our state’s natural resources. We need to end gerrymandering now and elect representatives who truly represent the will of the voters.” Later adding,  “In the Senate, I will work to rebuild our democracy and establish an independent process for redistricting where voters pick their politicians – not the other way around.”
