Welcome Kenneth Lewis
Kenneth Lewis is one of two declared candidates running for U.S. Senate against Richard Burr. Lewis is running to ensure that the “arc of progress” that took his family from slavery to a Duke/Harvard education and a successful law practice is available now and for future generations. He said he has the background, the experience and the insights gained from each to represent North Carolina and to lead in the Senate.
His family story is a significant factor in Lewis’s decision to run for the Senate.
The arc of my grandmother being born on a plantation where her mother was a slave to the kind of opportunities that I and my cousins were able to have, shapes the way that I view the greatness of our country and also the needs of our country. I want to make sure that that arc of progress exists for our generation and for future generations and when I go to the United States Senate I want to lead on that issue. I want to lead on making sure that we preserve an opportunity for people to grow into the middle class and to stay in the middle class. The issues I will fight for will be centered around making sure people have that opportunity.
Please join us tonight for a live Q&A with Kenneth from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Please continue to use this thread to leave questions and check back in for your answers.
Again, welcome to BlueNC.
