February 20, 2018

Fuqay-Varina, NC – Days after filing for state Senate District 17 Sam Searcy announced endorsements from four women leaders. Former State Representative and Wake County Commissioner Linda Coleman, Apex City Council Member Audra Killingsworth, Susan Evans, the 2016 Democratic nominee for Senate District 17, and former North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Patsy Keever all voiced their support for Searcy’s campaign.

“I have spent my career fighting for working families in North Carolina, families like the one Sam Searcy grew up in,” said Linda Coleman. “Sam is where he is today because of the opportunities this state provided and I know he’ll be a champion for working families and work every day to ensure that children in North Carolina have the same opportunities he did. People in Senate District 17 couldn’t ask for a better champion.”

“I’m proud to support Sam. I know that he will be a strong voice for people in Apex and across his district and will work hard for them in Raleigh,” said Killingsworth. “As a successful businessman, Sam has created good jobs here in North Carolina and shown that he knows how to work together with people to create success, something we need more of in Raleigh.”

“Sam Searcy is the leader we need in Raleigh. He’s a leader who will help North Carolina to a better future. A leader who will speak up for students, parents, teachers, and working families. A leader who will put people above politics, something that isn’t done very often in Raleigh,” said Evans. “Sam has a record of success in business where he brought people together and created good paying jobs and I know that he’ll work just as hard as a state Senator. I stand with Sam because we need real common-sense leadership in Raleigh and Sam’s the right person for the job.”

“Sam’s success as a small business owner and deep roots in North Carolina make him the best choice in November,” said Keever. “He’ll bring common sense to Raleigh and be a champion for working families and small businesses.”

I’m honored to have their support for this campaign,” said Searcy. “The dysfunction in Raleigh has gone on for too long and we need people in Raleigh who will put people above politics and that’s what I’ll do every day.”

Sam Searcy grew up near Hendersonville, NC where his mother worked in the public schools and his father worked in local factories. He was the first in his family to graduate from a four-year college and has created several successful companies in North Carolina. He is married to his wife Shauna and they have four children.
