Deborah Koff Ross (born June 20, 1963 (age 57)) is an attorney and left-wing Democrat who ran for United States House of Representatives from North Carolina's 2nd congressional district in the 2020 elections. She previously ran in the 2016 Senate election to challenge establishment RINO Richard Burr, and served in the state legislature prior to that.


As an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, Ross fought for leniency for a teenager who was convicted for the brutal sexual assault and rape of a neighbor.[1] She unsuccessfully argued for the defendant to be given rehabilitation and even privately argued that there was a "sympathetic" case for the heinous teenager, asserting that trying him in an adult court would lack "fundamental fairness".[2]

While an executive director for the far-left group after 9/11, Ross raised concerns of intelligence agencies becoming more dangerous.[3]

An anti-religion bigot, Ross once fought to ban Christmas songs from an elementary school.[4]

North Carolina House of Representatives

Ross voted in May 2006 to raise the statewide minimum wage.[5]

Ross voted in July 2010 against lobbying restrictions.[6]

In mid-September 2010, Rep. Ross voted against a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman.[7]

Ross voted against putting a cap on the gasoline tax.[8]

On February 26, 2013, Ross voted against a bill to prohibit expanding Medicaid statewide.[9]

Being staunchly pro-abortion, Ross voted against a bill to prohibit sex-selective abortions.[10] She later voted against another bill that would prevent the State Health Exchange Program from providing coverage for abortions.[11]

Ross voted against legislation to repeal the estate tax,[12] commonly referred to as the death tax.

2016 Senate bid

Ross announced in mid-October 2015 her run for U.S. Senate to challenge incumbent Republican Richard Burr.[13] During her campaign, she fundraised with a lawyer for a terrorist[14] and defended bars that banned members of the military.[15] Ross also was noted to have distanced herself from Hillary Clinton amidst the latter's 2016 run for president.[16] At one of her fundraisers, a top Democrat donor claimed that blacks who vote for Republicans are "f***ed in the head".[17]

Ross ultimately lost to Burr by just under 6% of the vote.[18]

2020 U.S. House election in North Carolina's 2nd district

Ross announced in early December 2019 that she would run for United States House of Representatives from North Carolina's 2nd district.[19] This was after judges in the state ordered the state's congressional seats to be redistricted due to "partisan gerrymandering",[20] which was quickly upheld.[21] As a result, the second congressional district was moved from a Republican stronghold[22] entirely into liberal Wake County.[23] Incumbent George Holding soon announced that he would retire rather than seek re-election,[24] as the seat is expected to handily flip in the Democrats' favor.[25][26]

Ross won her party's primary election,[27] and faced Republican Alan Swain in the general election.[28]

She handily won the general election to succeed Rep. Holding by nearly a thirty-point margin.[29]

Political positions

According to On the Issues, Ross is a liberal who is pro-abortion, supports the homosexual agenda, and supports gun control.[30]
