Cheri Beasley: She made history in 2019 by becoming the first African American woman to serve as the chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court - achieving this after many years of public service - first as a public defender, then as a district judge before joining the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
Beasley's mother was a role model for what women can achieve with hard work and faith. Her mother earned a PhD., became a university dean, and a national leader in her field. Beasley has proven again and again the validity of what her mother taught her.
Now Beasley is running for an open seat in the U.S. Senate against corrupt Washington politician Ted Budd who has said he is open to a nationwide ban on abortion, including in cases of rape, incest, and to save a woman's life. Unfortunately his extreme views are mainstream in the Republican Party and the GOP has committed to spending at least $27 million on Budd's campaign.
"Throughout my two decades of service, I always led with integrity and common sense to uphold the Constitution and protect our rights. I'm committed to doing the job I swore to do - as a judge, and - hopefully - as a U.S. Senator. If the GOP takes back the Senate, the threats to our rights don't stop with the overturning of Roe v. Wade. They can pass laws against birth control, marriage equality, and more." These are the words of Cheri Beasley demonstrating the commitment she is pledging to the people of North Carolina.
North Carolina needs Cheri Beasley in the U.S. Senate. We need Cheri Beasley in the U.S. Senate. VOTE!
