RALEIGH — The Republican State Legislative Committee is touting North Carolina’s Republican legislative candidates, saying the party’s nominees show a commitment to electing leaders who reflect their communities. 

In the N.C. Senate, the committee says Republicans have 9 women, 13 small business owners, and 7 veterans. In the N.C. House of Representatives, Republicans have 19 women, 24 small business owners, and 17 veterans. 

“North Carolina Republicans have chosen excellent nominees in state legislative races who will continue to hold the line against the failed agenda of Joe Biden and his Democrat allies in Raleigh,” said RSLC Deputy Communications Director Mason Di Palma. “The way to continue to defend and expand our majorities in North Carolina is to nominate candidates who can better resonate with voters of all backgrounds, and the diverse experiences of the Republican nominees running in the Tar Heel State will allow them to do just that.” 

The slate of candidates embody the mission of the RSLC’s Right Leaders Network, which launched last fall. The network is the latest in the RSLC’s long-standing efforts to grow the future of the Republican Party.  

The RSLC is the only national committee whose mission is to recruit, train, and elect Republicans to multiple down-ballot, state-level offices.  

Through the RSLC’s Right Women Right Now and Future Majority Project initiatives, the committee over the past decade has recruited, trained, supported, and elected thousands of diverse state Republicans across the country, many of whom went on to serve in higher office.
