Dan Forest for Governor Announces New Coalitions of Supporters
The Dan Forest for Governor campaign now has nine coalitions of supporters actively growing across the state.
These coalitions bring together people of different backgrounds who are dedicated to helping elect Lt. Governor Forest as Governor of North Carolina in 2020.
The new coalitions demonstrate Forest’s broad base of support as he runs on a campaign based on unity, opportunity and possibility for all people.
Here are the nine coalitions:
Black Americans for Dan Forest. This coalition is led by Clarence Henderson, a civil rights hero who took part in the historic sit-ins at the lunch counter at Woolworth’s in Greensboro. Join here.
Asian Americans for Dan Forest. This coalition is led by Hannah Chan, founder of Cary Raleigh Realty. Join here.
Latinos for Dan Forest. This group stands with Dan on the importance of family, opportunity and hard work. The coalition is led by Salisbury businesswoman Giannina Monzon. Join here.
Women for Dan Forest. This coalition is led by Dan’s wife, Alice Forest, along with former financial consultant Danielle Robinson and ministry and nonprofit leader Donica Hudson. Join here.
Young Professionals for Dan Forest. These young people believe in Dan’s call for a new vision for the state of North Carolina. The coalition is led by Madison Cawthorn, the CEO of a solar energy development firm. Join here.
Sportsmen for Dan Forest. This group is made up of hunters, anglers, and other outdoorsmen and women who believe in the Second Amendment and North Carolina’s sporting heritage. The coalition is led by Chip Camp, a land specialist and a leader of the nonprofit Cross Trail Outfitters. Join here.
These groups are in addition to three groups announced in September:
Military for Dan Forest. This coalition includes active-duty servicemembers, veterans, and military families. They support Dan Forest’s vision to make North Carolina the No. 1 most military-friendly state in the country. The group is chaired by (Ret.) Col. Ron Rabin, a Vietnam War veteran who earned a Silver Star and Bronze Star in service. He is also a former North Carolina state senator. Join here.
Law Enforcement for Dan Forest. This coalition brings together officers across all types of sworn law enforcement at the local, state and federal level. They support Dan Forest’s commitment to the rule of law and unwavering support for the state’s law enforcement officers. So far, 50 of the state’s sheriffs have formally endorsed Forest’s campaign for Governor. This group is led by Mike Caskey, a patrol training officer and veteran of one of North Carolina’s largest police departments. Join here.
Firefighters for Dan Forest. This coalition includes men and women who put their lives on the line for North Carolina communities every day. They appreciate Forest’s respect for the work they do running toward danger, not away from it. Join here.
More coalitions are expected to be announced as the campaign progresses.
