(RALEIGH, N.C.) – Today, North Carolina Senator Jay Chaudhuri was selected as one of eight leaders from across the country to join the NewDEAL (Developing Exceptional American Leaders), a national network that is committed to highlighting innovative ideas from state and local elected leaders who are pro-growth progressives.

The NewDEAL is a national network committed to highlighting pro-growth progressive state and local elected leaders from across the country with innovative ideas to build broadly-earned, sustainable economic growth. Since its launch in 2011, the network has grown from 10 leaders to over 150 state and local leaders, and launched an interactive ideas portal highlighting dozens of state and local ideas to grow the economy, expand opportunity for all and make government work better.

“I congratulate this group of eight NewDEAL leaders who have been chosen for their pro-growth policy solutions from the front-lines of government. We are proud to highlight these leaders from across the country with innovative ideas to make government more efficient and effective,” said Senator Warner, Honorary Co-Chair of the NewDEAL.

“We believe that in order to address the challenges of the 21st century, we need to look for fresh ideas at the state and local level where leaders like Jay Chaudhuri are developing and testing innovative solutions to help move our country forward,” said Governor Jack Markell, Honorary Co-Chair of the NewDEAL.
