Progress NC’s “AIM HIGHER” Using Emails To Push Candidates

Progress NC’s education front group, Aim Higher, is sending out emails telling you what specific candidates ‘value’ public education.

Aim Higher fails to mention that Adcock is a SAS employee who supports Common Core, Turner’s site is virtually devoid of where he stands on the issues, much less any detail beyond the Blueprint NC style attack on education. Turner is very friendly with far Left Moral Monday candidates.
