The campaign has learned that our Democratic primary opponent refuses to debate before the primary. That's unfortunate.

We'll just have to get our message out there any way we can. Click the above social media buttons to share us on Twitter and Facebook!

"Put The People First" is our campaign slogan because for too long our Representatives in the NC General Assembly have cared more about their big money donors, and what their problems are than they have for the average citizen.

For instance, the middle class pays 50% more in taxes than the rich and corporations do in our state.

What have our taxes been used for? Our public services have been cut, our election system remains unsecured, our children's educations have been threatened, and our teachers and professors have been disrespected and undermined by budget cuts that favor the wealthy and hurt the rest of us.

Our district is one of the fastest growing in the whole of the United States, and the election in 2020 could not be more important. That's why this campaign is asking you to send James to Raleigh, to show the country that North Carolina can lead the way forward.

Join us in supporting the progressive causes that will make the biggest improvements in the lives of working class and middle class North Carolinians, the poor, elderly and those with disabilities, and help us show America that we stand against racism, sexism, xenophobia, transphobia, misogyny, and injustice.

We pledged from the start of this campaign not to take a dime of big corporate or big PAC money. We're relying on small dollar donations from people like you all across the country who share these values, so please give what you can, when you can!

Thank You,

James Rory Dawkins Jr. and the Vote Dawkins Campaign

Click to the left to watch James's interview with Jon Evans of WECT channel 6 in Wilmington.

Jon Evans was a ridiculously nice guy and looks even better in person than he does on TV.

I think you'll find I'm more than qualified to be your Representative!

James has been accepted into the Rose Caucus, a national leftist/progressive organization, and is a verified Slate Member! Check out the Rose Caucus and the People's Platform by clicking the logo to the left!

We've also partnered with Survivors Lead, a national Gun Violence survivor's advocacy group. They are a great organization, and have given me Candidate Distinction as I have been a survivor of gun violence from the age of 11.

I will do everything I can so that no one has to go through what I went through!
