    As a woman, a black woman, I find 45’s recent comments extremely inappropriate and offensive. There is never a reason why the President of the United States should refer to anyone as a dog. ... See MoreSee Less

    If you are in #NorthCarolina like me. #DDAdams deserves your vote. @DDAdamsCongress is an exceptional woman with great ideals and an awesome personality. I think she will do a much better job than anyone else. She has my vote. https://t.co/6xRAfMhMAW

    @michellelaws7 It all happens locally. We focus on 2018 now, and then in 86 days, we have work to do. Whatever NC Districts don't flip, work starts. Of the nine challengers, we can elect two women of color, and triple the woc in Congress for NC. @DDAdamsCongress @LindaForNC. #2020after2018
