Together We Broke the Majority!

By November 9, 2018 No Comments

Dear Friend,

With your help, we won North Carolina’s 16th Senate District with over 65% of the vote.  Better yet, NC Democrats we were able to flip five more seats to #BreakTheMajority in the NC Senate!

Now Governor Cooper will be able to use his veto and the Republicans will be forced to work with Democrats in order to pass major legislation. This marks a sea change for North Carolina politics.

I will enter the state Senate determined to change the tone in Raleigh.  I’m hopeful that my colleagues in the state Senate will reject Donald Trump’s politics of fear and division.  I stand ready to work to improve the lives of North Carolinians.  I know there is much more that unites us than divides us.

My top three priorities will be (1) improving public education in North Carolina, (2) expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act and (3) establishing an independent redistricting commission to end the gerrymandering stain that has plagued our state for far too long.

I want to again express my heartfelt thanks for your help in electing me to the NC Senate. I am honored and humbled that you have placed your trust in me and will work tirelessly to make North Carolina a shining beacon in the South.

I look forward to serving the greatest state in the nation as your state Senator.

Caroline and I are so grateful for your help and support,

Wiley Nickel

Senator-Elect NC Senate-16
