Anderson Clayton is an organizer by trade who has committed herself to building strong Democratic communities in North Carolina.
A longtime volunteer, staffer, and party official, she became chair of the Person County Democrats at a crisis point for the party. Within two years, Anderson led Person County to flip the Roxboro City Council and flip a seat in the NC House—one of just two red-to-blue flips in the House in ’22.
Anderson is running for party chair because she knows that local organizing is the foundation that supports our party up and down the ballot, and she will fight for what works.
We need to chart a new path forward for NCDP. Anderson has a plan to put us back on track and keep leadership accessible and accountable.
With so much on the line, we need someone who will speak up for us even when the stakes are high—and someone who will tell us the truth, even when it’s difficult.
The successes and failures of our party have real-world consequences. We need someone who will lead with compassion, not just for us, but for everyone.
As chair, I’ll fight for what we know works.
Anderson is who we need to help carry our party forward. She has helped uplift her rural county, electing Democrats in the communities our party has forgotten. Anderson is the perfect example of “young getting it done.”
President, Young Dems of NC
The party is not reaching the forgotten people or the areas within Eastern NC. In order to move this party forward towards progress, and reach those forgotten, our leader should be progressive. I am in full support of Anderson
Clayton for NCDP chair.
Candidate, US House NC-03
In her first year as chairwoman of the Person Co. Democratic Party, Anderson was able to get three of her candidates elected, making history in Person by having the first Black women elected to the city council. She is one who possesses greatness, sees greatness and passes it along. I am the fruit of her labor.
Roxboro City Councilwoman
Anderson’s enthusiasm and persistence is unmatched. She brings a fresh perspective to organizing and getting results for the NC Democratic Party. I am proud to back Anderson Clayton for chair.
Chair, Montgomery Co. Democrats
I have known Anderson since her days at App State. I have watched her grow and gain experience and knowledge in many different areas and roles in politics and out. I believe she has the experience and tools needed to take us to a different level as a party.
NCDP 5th District Chair
Watauga Co. Commissioner
Anderson Clayton is clearly one who has the knowledge and passion to rally support around the Democratic Party agenda. She has almost single-handedly moved the party from a place of complacency and obscurity to a force to be reckoned within Person County and beyond!
Roxboro City Councilman
Anderson cares about everyone in this state and it isn’t just shown in her words but in her actions. Not just a new voice but a strong and inspiring voice. We need this type of leadership as our chair and that’s what we are getting with Anderson.
President, North Carolina College Democrats
North Carolina has a lot to prepare for—partisan redistricting and the rise of extremist Republican candidates being only part of it.
We need the guidance of someone who knows exactly what’s at stake in our elections and who is willing to fight for every community.
Anderson is centering a commitment to year-round community organizing in her plan for NCDP. If we want to win, it starts here, with investments in our grassroots.
