Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach Campaign Brings National Town Hall Tour to North Carolina
Steyer to discuss Donald Trump’s offenses against our country and demand local elected officials support Rep. Al Green’s Impeachment Resolution
(CHARLOTTE, May 16, 2018)—Need to Impeach Founder Tom Steyer is bringing the case to remove Donald Trump from office to North Carolina, where he will host a town hall—part of his nationwide, 30 town hall series—in Charlotte on May 22.
Since March, Steyer has hosted events in Ohio, the Washington D.C. area, Oakland, Atlanta, Orlando, and Iowa. At each event, Steyer makes the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents, and Republicans about the need to impeach Donald Trump, and to question why elected leaders in North Carolina and across the country are normalizing his lawless actions and ignoring the clear mandate from their constituents to remove him from power.
According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, 70 percent of Democrats support impeaching Trump, yet one of the three Democratic members of Congress representing North Carolina—David Price (NC-Raleigh)—voted against Representative Al Green’s impeachment resolution earlier this year. The North Carolina representatives that voted in favor of impeachment were G.K. Butterfield (NC-Durham) and Alma Adams (NC-Charlotte).
“With every day that goes by, Donald Trump erodes our democracy and puts the safety of the American public at risk,” said Steyer. “We need strong leaders in Congress who are not afraid to stand up to him and represent the will of the people who put them in office. Those who condemn Trump but do not back their words with action are enabling the damage he is inflicting on our country. Rep. Price, who voted against Rep. Green’s resolution, should explain why he is acting against his constituents’ wishes by voting no on impeachment. The people of North Carolina deserve elected leaders who refuse to back down on our shared principles.”
Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017 through national television and social media ads. More than 5.2 million people have since signed on to support the campaign, creating a digital army that several political strategists call one of the most powerful political tools in the Democratic party. So far, eight national commercials—including one in Spanish—have aired, reaching more than two billion television viewers and more than 454 million people through social media.
