Smith, An Unwavering Progressive, Has a Great Chance to Win a Rural District in North Carolina—Let’s Help


PDA is proud to endorse former State Senator Erica Smith for the U.S. House of Representatives in North Carolina’s 1st district.

Erica is an accomplished public servant, and powerful advocate for progressive policies such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal—as well as for family farmers.

Her quote on the front page of her campaign website speaks volumes about why she is a transformational candidate for the people of the district and the country: “We will come together, from small towns and farms across our district, to win this seat and deliver a New Deal for rural North Carolinians.

Just like PDA, Erica Smith is for bringing the best of FDR’s legacy into the 21st century!

Progressives like Erica advocate for policies that will improve the lives of the vast majority of people in small towns and rural Americans—but very few progressives are currently representing small town and rural America. A victory by Erica will be a game changer!

Help PDA elect Erica Smith to Congress in North Carolina’s 1st District.
