With election day, May 8, approaching fast, Cecil Bothwell is bashing his main rival in the 11th Congressional District Democratic primary, Hayden Rogers, for taking campaign donations from the payday loan industry. Bothwell and other critics of the industry say it profits from predatory lending that targets young and low-income workers.

Bothwell adds PDA to list of endorsements

Written by

Progressive Democrats of America have added NC 11 congressional candidate Cecil Bothwell to their national slate. Bothwell joins other PDA endorsees including candidates Norman Solomon (D-CA), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Winona Benally Baldenegro (D-AZ), Wayne Powell (D-VA), Eric Griego (D-NM), and incumbents Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD), Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA). Bothwell said, "I am proud to be in such good company!"

I am the only candidate for congress in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, in either party, who has taken strong positions in favor of women, women’s rights and women’s health.

Cecil Bothwell, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler in the 11th Congressional District primary in May, addressed jobs, education and health care at a town hall meeting Friday in Hendersonville.

Bothwell's campaign platform is built on "jobs, not cuts," "education for all" and "strengthening Social Security and Medicare."

Hoping to gather more name recognition and answer voter questions, Cecil Bothwell led an almost 90-minute-long meeting in which he addressed a variety of topics ranging from his electability to education. The mostly liberal-leaning audience also asked about subjects such as alternative energy, limiting the power of lobbyists and a tax on stock trading.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently a supporter, they may not be aware that the legislation exists. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request for support. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
