Ex-Rep. Clayton Gives NC Senate Backing To Lewis

Ken Lewis has landed the endorsement of former elected leader Eva Clayton for his campaign for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.

Lewis' campaign announced the endorsement on Monday. Clayton said in a news release that Lewis would help shape policies that benefit working families in North Carolina and nationwide and be a steadfast progressive vote in the Senate.

Clayton was the first black woman in North Carolina elected to Congress in 1992.

Lewis also has been endorsed by current U.S. Reps. G.K. Butterfield and Mel Watt and former Charlotte Mayor Harvey Gantt.

Lewis is one of six Democrats seeking a May 4 primary victory in hopes of taking the seat of Republican incumbent Richard Burr in the fall.
