CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCT) Bernie 2020 announced a major expansion of its North Carolina operation with a slate of new staff hires and four field offices opening in Charlotte, Durham, Greenville, and Winston-Salem.
Last week, the campaign announced two North Carolina Campaign Co-Chairs: Durham Mayor Pro Tempore Jillian Johnson and Hate-Free Schools Coalition Founder LaTarndra Strong.
“We are building an unrivaled grassroots operation across North Carolina that will ensure Bernie wins on Super Tuesday and defeats Donald Trump in November,” said North Carolina State Coordinator Brooke Adams. “Our team of committed staff members and thousands of volunteers is working in every corner of the state to reach voters and expand our already unprecedented people-powered movement.”
The campaign will host office opening events for local supporters at several of the new locations on Wednesday.
In Greenville, Sanders will open his local campaign office on 663 South Memorial Drive.
The opening coincides with Sander’s $5.5. million ad campaign across North Carolina and other states.
Sanders operatives in North Carolina said they are building an aggressive grassroots operation here to give their candidate an edge on Super Tuesday and to set up a run against President Trump this fall.
