The son of a single teenage mom, and raised by his grandparents in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Jaime overcame the challenges of grinding poverty with the help of teachers and mentors who believed in him. From a mobile home to Yale University and Georgetown Law, Jaime never forgot who he was or where he came from.
Jaime served as an aide to legendary South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, and then worked for some of the biggest employers in South Carolina, such as the Port of Charleston and the University of South Carolina. In 2013, Jaime was elected the first African American chair of the South Carolina Democratic Party, a position he held until 2017. Jaime and his wife Marie live in Columbia, South Carolina, where they raise their two young children.
Phone Bank for Cal Cunningham for U.S. Senate in North Carolina!
Saturday October 3rd • 1pm - 3pm Eastern Time
North Carolina is a critical battleground state. Trump won NC by just 3% in 2016. The state also faces a critical Senate race in 2020 which could dethrone Mitch McConnell and take control of the upper chamber.
Democratic Senate candidate Cal Cunningham was elected to the NC State Senate at the age of 27. His efforts and accolades include:
fighting for higher teacher pay and investments in early childhood education
advocating for landmark clean air legislation, land preservation, and campaign finance reform
joining the U.S. Army Reserve and serving three tours
receiving the Bronze Star and the prestigious General Douglas MacArthur Leadership Award, in part for groundbreaking work prosecuting contractors for criminal misconduct
leading efforts to address school gun violence, curb the opioid addiction crisis, and fund services for women and families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault
All you need to take part is a phone and a computer or tablet: sorry, an IPad or Safari won’t work. We'll give you training, a script, and everything else you need to be successful.
The election is a few weeks away! Lean in!

VICE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE
