The Voter Protection Project announces support for Former Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court, Cheri Beasley
WASHINGTON – The Voter Protection Project (VPP), the largest national PAC focused on electing voting rights champions and holding Republicans accountable for their attacks on the ballot box, proudly announces its support for Cheri Beasley’s campaign to represent North Carolina in the U.S. Senate.
“Our organization is proud to endorse Cheri Beasley, a trailblazer from the Tar Heel State with a proven ability to win statewide,” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of the Voter Protection Project. “ North Carolina will be a critical 2022 battleground to secure Democratic Control of the Senate and finally gain the ability to pass critical voting rights legislation. Cheri Beasley has been a champion for justice and equality in North Carolina and will be a strong voice in the Senate for voting rights.”
“I have spent my life in the pursuit of justice, working to make a real difference in people’s lives. I’m running for Senate because it’s time for our Senators to do the same thing. For too long, Washington has left North Carolinians behind, and we’re facing an absence of justice in the Senate,” said Cheri Beasley. “But we can bring change to North Carolina by electing someone who has the record and commitment to build a better future for our state, and that’s what I’ll do as North Carolina’s next Senator.”
After an $8 million dollar inaugural cycle as an organization, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022. Cheri Beasley joins other recently endorsed powerhouse candidates like recently elected Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury, Tim Ryan for Senate, and John Lira in TX-24. VPP will continue to make early investments to protect and elect frontline Democrats who have been crucial allies in the fight to restore integrity to our elections.
Founded in 2019, the Voter Protection Project works to confront the architects of voter suppression directly at the ballot box. Following the Supreme Court’s Rucho v. Common Cause ruling, which stated that federal courts cannot regulate partisan gerrymandering, VPP has taken on the fight to defeat voter suppression state-by-state. During the 2020 cycle, they raised over $8.9-million to support candidates for office at the federal and state levels that champion fair and representative elections.
