Knightdale, NC – On Thursday morning, Linda Coleman, Democratic nominee for North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district, earned the endorsement of EMILY’s List, whose mission is to help elect pro-choice Democratic women across the country.

“For too long, George Holding has ignored the needs of North Carolina families, especially on issues around access to health care in rural districts like ours. I am immensely proud to earn the support of EMILY’s List, and I look forward to working with them to make sure the folks in North Carolina’s 2nd district are represented by someone who will always defend and prioritize access to reproductive health care,” Linda Coleman said.

EMILY’s List joins a growing list of elected officials and organizations that have endorsed Linda’s campaign, including the AFL-CIO, Moms Demand Action, Communications Workers of America, Congressional Black Caucus, Sierra Club, Equality NC, MoveOn, and Reps. GK Butterfield, Alma Adams, David Price, Barbara Lee, and Joyce Beatty.
