Candidate Name: James Dawkins
What office are you running for?
North Carolina General Assembly, District 19
With which party are you running for office?
November 3, 2020
Why are you running for office?
The NCGOP is one of the most corrupt and morally bankrupt institutions in the US and its members in the State House must be challenged by competent, effective candidates that will help the poor, working class, and elderly of our great state.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Medicaid Expansion would help 640,000 North Carolinians get the healthcare they need and it is impossible with the NCGOP at the till of government. We need new leadership from a party and members who care about those who could benefit from expansion.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We must get money out of politics. As long as corporate and big donor money controls the process both sides will be beholden to their respective corporate masters, and not with the will of the people.
Who is your hero?
Unhappy the land that needs heroes – Bertolt Brecht
What are your hobbies?
Playing guitar or music in general. Shooting basketball. Reading.
What is the most recent book you read?
Dark Money – Jane Mayer
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
How can our readers get involved in your campaign?
Phone bank, evangelize, donate.
What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?
What sets your campaign apart from the others in your district?
I have pledged not to take a dollar from big corporate or big money donors, and will only be beholden to the people in my district and the state, not its businesses.
