Alma Adams could become the first North Carolina woman elected to Congress since 1992.
US House of Representatives
North Carolina, 12th District
Alma Adams is a recognizable figure to the citizens of North Carolina, and not only for her jaunty hats. A longtime member of the state’s General Assembly and former chair of the North Carolina Women’s Legislative Caucus, Adams sponsored legislation to strengthen domestic violence laws and support for single mothers, minimum wage earners and public edcuation.
The citizens of North Carolina may be feeling shellshocked right now, after a couple of years of drastic draconian laws enacted by their 2012 GOP state leadership. Weeks of Moral Monday protests may translate into voting booth action in 2014 to replace those extreme Republicans with sensible Democrats. Alma Adams would be the first woman elected to the North Carolina Congressional delegation in over 20 years.
“As a mother, grandmother and teacher, I’m outraged by how Republicans in Congress keep ignoring the needs of our families. With your help, I’ll go to Congress and fight to stop them.”
