2022 Midterm Results 

The 2022 North Carolina midterm elections were crucial for the political landscape of the state. With a Democratic Governor, a heavily Republican state legislature, and gerrymandered congressional and state legislature districts, the goal of the midterm election was to win the open Senate seat and retain the Democratic Governor’s veto power. All in for NC and Swing Blue Alliance worked as a team, providing much-needed out-of-state fundraising and volunteer resources to organizations on the ground in North Carolina to support the Democratic candidates.

All in for NC focused on multiple races in order to preserve the Governor’s veto power while also campaigning for Democrat Cheri Beasley for Senate. They helped keep volunteers engaged and informed in monthly meetings featuring elected officials, candidates, local leaders, and North Carolina experts, recruited volunteers in large events, and, in partnership with Swing Blue Alliance, engaged with voters through deep canvassing, postcard writing, and phone banks. The organization also fundraised for candidates to ensure they had the resources they needed to run successful campaigns.

The results of the 2022 North Carolina midterm elections were mixed for the Democrats. Democratic Governor Roy Cooper retained veto power and Democrats picked up two seats in the U.S. House, but Cheri Beasley lost in a close race for the open Senate seat to Republican Ted Budd. Despite the loss, All in for NC and Swing Blue Alliance can be proud of the efforts they made to support Democratic candidates. The organizations helped recruit hundreds of volunteers who made $375,000 in donations, 40,000 calls, and sent 75K postcards for 5 state legislature candidates. These efforts demonstrate the dedication and determination of All in for NC and Swing Blue Alliance to create positive change in North Carolina through the electoral process.
