Campaign themes


Hanchette's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Economy and Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We can begin to improve North Carolina’s economy by focusing on the things we know will grow our state: investments in education, innovation, and a highly skilled workforce."


  • Excerpt: "I will remain steadfast in my commitment to creating a 21st century approach to improving education and spurring innovation in the classroom. We can begin giving our students a competitive advantage by raising teacher pay to the national average, thus ensuring we recruit the best teachers in the nation, and ensure we stop the departure of talented teachers to neighboring states. Likewise, returning teachers assistants to our classrooms will mean additional personalized attention for our students, and an extra helping hand for our teachers leading the classroom. To help sustain this progress we must keep our community colleges and universities affordable and find new ways to recruit the next generation of talented educators required of us in this economy."


  • Excerpt: "Medicaid expansion would have been an economic and humanitarian win for North Carolina."
