State Senator Wiley Nickel Earns National Voting Rights Organization Endorsement

SACRAMENTO – 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 support for Wiley Nickel in North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District.

“State Senator Wiley brings a deep track record of frontline experience fighting voter suppression in North Carolina to this race,” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of the Voter Protection Project. “We love where the Senator stands on voting rights and election security but most importantly we feel confident that he is building the type of campaign that can bring this swing district home for Democrats this November.”

“As a former staffer for President Obama’s Administration, I have seen the power of a nation’s hope,” said Wiley Nickel, Congressional Candidate for North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District. “Ensuring that every American truly has a voice at the ballot box is critical to a healthy democracy, and I’m ready to take that fight to Congress.”

After an $8.9 million dollar inaugural cycle as an organization, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022. Wiley Nickel joins other recently endorsed powerhouse candidates like Cheri Beasley for Senate, Daniel Hernandez in AZ-06, Michelle Vallejo in TX-15, Hillary Scholten in MI-03, Max Rose for NY-11, Quaye Quartey for CA-25, and Christina Bohannan in IA-02. VPP will continue to make critical investments to protect and elect Democrats who will make voting easier, not harder.###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. Learn more about VPP by visiting,
