“United We Win” is the theme for this year’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner.  In less than 30 legislative days, the Republican legislature has attempted to repeal health care, strip our ability to recruit businesses to the state, undermine public education, and prevent people from voting.   Through your support of the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, we can fight Republican efforts to erode the rights of working families by making critical investments in field, technology infrastructure, and Get-Out-the-Vote efforts that we all know are so important.   United, the 2.7 million registered Democrats in North Carolina are so much stronger than the special interests and the GOP financiers to whom the Republicans owe their temporary majority.  Individual tickets are $100.  See
