An attorney, civil rights advocate, and state legislator
Deborah Ross came to North Carolina for law school at UNC-Chapel Hill, and has called the area home ever since. She served as a state representative for more than 10 years, and was Majority and Minority Whip, as well as the chair of the Judiciary, Ethics and Election Laws Committees. Ross has spent her career fighting for equality, justice, and progress, and will champion those same values in Congress.
A record of fighting for democracy reform
As a state representative, Ross sponsored and helped pass major ethics reform legislation and worked to protect voting rights across the state. She supports critical legislation, such as H.R. 1, the For the People Act, and will always fight to protect voters’ access to the ballot.
A new district that is poised to flip blue
In 2019, the state threw out its unfairly drawn district map, and the new Second District provides a strong opportunity to flip a seat blue and send a true reformer to Congress. North Carolina is a key battleground state this cycle, and a strong performance in this district will help Democrats up and down the ballot.
