Cal Cunningham is running on the Democratic ticket for U.S. Senate in North Carolina. Raised in the small town of Lexington, Cal grew up learning the value of public service and hard work. He is a decorated Army veteran and a former state senator, who has lived a life dedicated to improving the lives of all North Carolinians. He's fought for public education, increasing teacher pay, and landmark clean air legislation. He's seen first-hand the urgent need to improve access and bring down the cost of health care for every North Carolinian. Cal wants to protect and expand the Affordable Care Act, create a public option, expand Medicaid coverage, and allow Medicare to negotiate for lower drug prices. His opponent, incumbent Senator Thom Tillis, has consistently stood behind President Trump and corporate special interests. Tillis supported Trump’s efforts to shift $80 million from the state’s military bases to fund a border wall, and he supports Big Oil’s attempt to drill along the North Carolina coast.
