Common Good Politics - Erica Smith for Senate

July 7, 2021

Doug Pagitt and Robb Ryerse just can't get over the January 6th Insurrection - and think you shouldn't either. They discuss the six-month anniversary of that infamous day and are joined later in the show by Erica Smith who is running for Senate in North Carolina.


An educator, a minister, a State Senator and a mother of four, Erica Smith has spent her life fighting for working people across North Carolina. Having grown up on a family farm and represented rural North Carolina in the state senate, Erica’s passionate about uniting a diverse coalition of working North Carolinians behind a bold platform for progress. She wants a government that works for all of us instead of just the wealthy and well-connected. Erica’s fighting to build a North Carolina where it doesn’t matter if you’re white, black or brown, whether you were born in the rural west, the rural east or any of the towns and cities in between.
