Durham group endorses Dalton, Coleman

The People's Alliance of Durham has endorsed Walter Dalton in the Democratic primary for governor and Linda Coleman in the Democratic primary for lieutenant governor.

The alliance describes itself as a progressive community organization that supports such causes as campaign finance reform, public transportation, and LGBT rights.

Marshall picks up endorsements from Durham

Secretary of State Elaine Marshall is touting two Durham endorsements in her bid to win the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.

On Monday, Durham businessman, investor and banker Maceo Sloan threw his support behind Marshall, according to a news release. Sloan is one of the state’s most successful African-American business and civic leaders. He is President and CEO of Sloan Financial Group and was chairman of Mechanics & Farmers Bank until 2008.

Marshall also picked up the endorsement of the Durham People's Alliance, a group that works to improve the quality of life in Durham by promoting "diversity and sustainability."

"For years, Secretary Marshall has demonstrated leadership and progressive values," said Alliance member Milo Pyne. "We believe she is the best candidate to appeal to both urban and rural voters and the strongest candidate to take on Richard Burr in November."

"I’m pleased to have this encouragement from leaders in Durham," said Marshall. "These endorsements highlight our momentum across the state."

People's Alliance announces endorsements

The Durham-based People's Alliance released its endorsements Wednesday.

The liberal political action group endorsed candidates for local and state offices contested in the May 6 primary, choosing state Treasurer Richard Moore for governor over his opponent, Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue.

Endorsements went to state Sen. Kay Hagan for U.S. Senate, Durham attorney Hampton Dellinger for lieutenant governor, Janet Cowell for state treasurer and David C. Smith for insurance commissioner.

The group opted not to choose between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential primary.
