Morrisville, NC – The Wiley Nickel for North Carolina campaign announced the endorsement of Morrisville Mayor TJ Cawley in the race for the newly created 16th Senate District (Cary, Morrisville & NW Raleigh). Cawley joins a growing list of organizations and local, state and federal leaders lining up behind Nickel’s campaign.

Nickel said, “I’m proud to be running for the Senate with the endorsement of Morrisville Mayor TJ Cawley. Mayor Cawley knows the importance of growing Wake County’s economy and planning for the future of Western Wake County. In the Senate, I look forward to working with Mayor Cawley to make sure the State of North Carolina makes a serious investment in public education and community development.”

Democrat Wiley Nickel is a practicing attorney in Cary, NC where he lives with his wife, Caroline, and their two children. Wiley graduated from Tulane University as a Political Science major and received his law degree from the Pepperdine University School of Law. Before opening his law practice, Wiley worked for the White House traveling with President Barack Obama in the United States and abroad. He also traveled with Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton/Gore White House.

As a local Cary attorney and small business owner, Wiley works every day to see that his clients are treated fairly and compassionately by the North Carolina justice system. Wiley is running for the State Senate because he believes it’s time for our legislators to solve real problems instead of passing an extreme partisan agenda. When Wiley is elected to the Senate he will be one more vote towards ending the Republican supermajority that is fighting Governor Cooper at every turn.

Wiley believes it’s time to focus on strengthening our public schools, creating high paying jobs, expanding access to affordable healthcare and protecting our environment. Wiley will lead the fight to protect a woman’s right to choose, push for stronger gun control laws and implement independent redistricting reform that takes the power to draw new legislative districts out of the hands of politicians.
