As the official campaign season kicks off, candidates for all offices are beginning to seek out and pick up endorsements.
In the District 1 state Senate race, incumbent Republican Sen. Bill Cook and his Democratic opponent Stan White both picked up endorsements last week.
The North Carolina chapter of the Sierra Club endorsed Stan White.
“We are very pleased to announce today that the Sierra Club officially endorses Stan White for election in the N.C. Senate District 1,” said David Ames, chairman of the Cypress Group of the Sierra Club. “We are confident that he will work to protect North Carolina’s environment, for our families and for our future.”
