Jeff Jackson Holds 50th Town Hall on 100 County Tour Across North Carolina
Jackson continues barnstorming the state with a swing through eastern North Carolina
Charlotte – Jeff Jackson held his 50th town hall in Hertford County on Monday, marking a halfway point in his 100 town hall tour across North Carolina. Thousands of people across North Carolina have joined Jackson at a town hall, with crowd sizes reaching as many as 350 people. Jackson’s campaign raised over $2 million in the cycle so far and has the most grassroots support of any candidate in the race.
Sen. Jackson held eight town halls over the weekend in Northampton, Currituck, Camden, Perquimans, Pasquotank, Chowan, Gates, and Hertford counties. Attendees thanked him for visiting the northeastern part of the state, something they said a lot of elected officials and candidates fail to do.
“Folks in the eastern part of the state deserve to be a part of the conversation too and our campaign is working to put them front and center,” said Sen. Jackson. “I can’t make law in your name if I don’t know what you need. And the only way to do that is to show up with some humility and learn.”
