Patricia Timmons-Goodson

Challenger

A lifelong public servant

Patricia Timmons-Goodson was raised in a military family, and attended UNC Chapel Hill with the help of Veterans Administration benefits. After earning her law degree, she went on to become the first African American to serve as a North Carolina 12th District Judge at the age of 29, and then the first African American woman to serve on the North Carolina Supreme Court. In 2016, President Obama nominated Timmons-Goodson to serve as a judge for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Committed to unrigging the system

She knows that too many politicians are in the pockets of the special interests, and that Americans’ safe and fair access to the ballot is in jeopardy. Timmons-Goodson will work tirelessly in Congress to pass sweeping legislation that will restore our democracy to the hands of the people.

An opportunity to elect a strong reformer

This district includes the exurbs of Raleigh and Charlotte, and is trending Democratic. North Carolina is a key pick up state in 2020, and a strong performance in the Eighth Congressional District will help Democrats up and down the ballot.
