24 Hours - The Clock is Ticking

Robin Hayes must decide tomorrow if he wants to show his loyalty to President Bush or to North Carolina's 8th District.

The badly needed override of President Bush's veto against State Children's Health Insurance expansion goes to vote tomorrow. And as North Carolina Governor Mike Easley has said...

"We need this bill to serve North Carolina children currently eligible for the program," the governor says. "It is not for North Carolina adults, nor for children in families earning $80,000, nor illegal immigrants, nor for those with insurance right now. Those who make these claims are not telling the truth."

As I told the Fayetteville Observer, "When our jobs are at stake, Hayes stands with Bush over the children of working families. When the children of working families are at stake, Hayes again stands with Bush, only this time blaming the job losses he and President Bush helped create. Enough."

There are thousands of families in North Carolina who are counting on Washington politicians to exempt children from their political fight and support SCHIP expansion. I hope Congressman Hayes will just this once break with President Bush and exempt our Congressional District and children from petty politics.

Endorsed by the Charlotte Observer editorial board, the State Children's Health Insurance program is worth fighting for.

You know what I fight for. Join my fight with $24 or more in the next 24 hours as my opponent Robin Hayes decides what he fights for. Thank you.

Who is running those ads in the Charlotte Media Market?

The ones targeting Hayes, that is.

make it go viral

Send it off to everyone you know, and have the county parties send it to their email lists. You could even ask for donations to create your own commercial.

I believe D-trip is running ads against Republicans

and Blue America and BlogPAC are making phone calls into the districts of the five (or some of them) Dems who orginally voted against SCHIP. Both McIntyre and Etheridge were targeted.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

At a work meeting today, I was able to talk to several former

Hayes supporters who are FURIOUS with him for the S-CHIP bill. I pointed out to them that they needed to 1) let Hayes know they were pissed, and 2) look into Kissell and/or Autry. I'm going to have to make up little bidness cards or with web addresses of these folks on them.

Hayes will be hearing from - or has already heard from a lot of women that don't usually get politically active. They were quite eloquent.
