Bad News for Fred Smith!
Fred was a registered Democrat from 1974-1995
He also voted in every Democratic primary during that time. On the 1980 Democrat Presidential Primary ballot was:
President Jimmy Carter
Sen. Edward Kennedy
The 1984 Democrat Presidential Primary ballot included Walter Mondale. The 1988 ballot was led by Michael Dukakis and the 1992 ballot was led by Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton. The 1990 primary ballot included US Senate candidate Harvey Gantt.
So Fred, who did you vote for? Carter? Kennedy? Mondale?
There were tons of candidates for statewide office in North Carolina between 1974 and 1995, so why is Gantt the only one Graham's camp is singling out as potentially having been egregiously voted for by Smith?
This is blatant racism, and whether Graham himself authorizes this kind of commentary on his behalf or not, says a lot about where his support is coming from.
If Graham has a shred of credibility he will denounce these comments and separate anyone responsible for them from any formal position with his campaign.
