Obama endorses 100+ candidates nationwide, including NC Rep. Clark

Former President Barack Obama

Aug. 3. Former President Barack Obama has endorsed a wide variety of Democratic candidates across the country, including NC Gov. Roy Cooper, US Senate candidate Cal Cunningham and NC Rep. Christy Clark.

She represents NC District 98, which includes Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville. She defeated incumbent John R. Bradford two years ago; the Republican is running against her this fall.

They are among more than 100 candidates from 17 states running for federal, statewide and state legislative offices endorsed by the former president.


According to a statement, Obama plans to issue another round of endorsements this fall after more states complete its primary elections.

The 2020 endorsements include 27 Texas candidates, the most for any state. North Carolina and Pennsylvania were tied for the second-most endorsements on Obama’s list with 21 from each state.
