In U.S. House District 2, the INDY Endorses Wendy Ella May

She’s the state’s first trans congressional candidate, but she’s so much more than that

In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

We think the world of opponent Michelle Laws, but Price is a local institution

In N.C. Senate District 16, the INDY Endorses Luis Toledo

This was a close call, but Toledo is thoughtful, well-informed, and pragmatic

In N.C. House District 11, the INDY Endorses Allison Dahle

Even if you give Duane Hall every benefit of the doubt, it’s hard to see him being effective

In N.C. House District 33, the INDY Endorses Rosa Gill

She’s been in this seat since 2009, and we see no reason to change that

post a comment

In N.C. House District 35, the INDY Endorses Terence Everitt

He’s best suited to beating Christopher Malone, who badly needs beating

post a comment (1)

For Durham County District Attorney, the INDY Endorses Roger Echols

Satana Deberry makes a strong case, but the incumbent deserves another term to see his reforms through

post a comment (11)

Mike Andrews needs to go

post a comment (3)

For Durham Public Schools, the INDY Endorses Mike Lee, Matt Sears, and Natalie Beyer

post a comment (1)

For Orange County Sheriff, the INDY Endorses Charles Blackwood

We appreciate Tony White’s commitment to transparency, but he’s not as qualified as the incumbent

post a comment

For Orange County Board of Commissioners, the INDY Endorses Sally Greene and Earl McKee

We’re impressed by Greene, and every board needs a contrarian like McKee

post a comment

For Orange County Schools, the INDY Endorses Sarah Smylie, Brenda Stephens, Hillary Mackenzie, and Will Atherton

These three newcomers and one incumbent are best positioned to put the school system on the right track

post a comment

For Orange County Clerk of Superior Court, the INDY Endorses Mark Kleinschmidt

James Stanford has kept the trains running on time, but we’re excited about the possibilities Kleinschmidt could bring to the low-key office

post a comment (3)

For Wake County Board of Commissioners, the INDY Endorses Sig Hutchinson, Matt Calabria, Erv Portman, James West, and John Burns

When you look at the incumbents’ entire body of work, there’s little reason to ditch them

In the Runoff, the INDY Endorses Nancy McFarlane for Raleigh Mayor

It’s good for Charles Francis to raise issues of inequality, but he hasn’t convinced us he could do better

post a comment (5)

In the General Election, the INDY Endorses Steve Schewel for Durham Mayor

He’s the embodiment of Durham’s progressive activist ethos

post a comment

In Durham’s Ward 1, the INDY Endorses DeDreana Freeman for City Council

Cora Cole-McFadden was a trailblazer, but the city could benefit from fresh blood

post a comment

In Durham’s Ward 2, the INDY Endorses Mark-Anthony Middleton for City Council

John Rooks Jr. loses us when he talks about a moratorium on downtown development
