Progressive youth vote organization endorses Democratic gubernatorial candidate in North Carolina
Raleigh, NC – Today, NextGen PAC endorsed North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein for Governor. In 2024, NextGen PAC will leverage its grassroots organizing infrastructure in North Carolina by mobilizing thousands of young voters to defeat his Republican challenger.
NextGen PAC’s endorsement of Attorney General Stein is due to his proven commitment to building economic equity, protecting abortion access and care, and fighting for climate action. As extremist Republicans promise to rollback basic rights in North Carolina, young voters know that Stein is a leader who will truly represent and fight for their vision for the future. Electing Attorney General Stein as Governor is a key part of ensuring North Carolina remains just, equitable, and democratic for the future.
“NextGen PAC is proud to endorse Democratic candidate Attorney General Josh Stein for Governor in 2024,” NextGen PAC President and Executive Director Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez said. “As the largest, most diverse generation in American history, we are committed to creating a future that reflects us, represents us, and respects us, and North Carolina is a critical state in our fight for this future. Attorney General Stein is a proven advocate for our rights and believes in our movement for change. In 2022, young North Carolinians turned out in record numbers for progressives statewide, and we will continue mobilizing to protect the progress we have made and build a stronger future.”
To help keep the Governor’s seat blue, NextGen PAC will engage in communities and on campuses across the state to ensure young people are ready to turn out for Democrats up and down the ballot in 2024. In 2020, NextGen contributed to the highest youth voter turnout in history, reaching more than 10.5 million people across nearly a dozen states and motivating nearly 4.7 million to cast ballots in the November election. Across the country in 2020, NextGen reached one in every nine voters under 35 who cast a ballot.
