ICYMI: Former Congressmembers G.K. Butterfield & Eva Clayton Share Their Support For Josh Stein

Following Governor Cooper’s endorsement last month, prominent North Carolina leaders are sharing why they are supporting Josh Stein for governor of North Carolina. Former Congressman G.K. Butterfield and former Congresswoman Eva Clayton, early endorsers of the Stein campaign, spoke to Josh’s commitment and passion for service, his record of fighting and delivering for North Carolinians, and his ability to unite our state to build a better, more prosperous future.


“He is made out of the right stuff. Josh Stein’s DNA is made up of commitment, of passion, of excellence, and fairness.” 

“He wants to unite North Carolina, and particularly because he’s going to fight for rural North Carolina and for the poor… His capacity is there, but his heart is also there.” 

Attorney General Josh Stein continues to build a campaign to win with record-breaking fundraising, a robust record of accomplishments, and key endorsements, including more than 150 of North Carolina’s former and current elected officials, North Carolina AFL-CIO, NCAE, League of Conservation Voters, and Let America Vote / End Citizens United
