The Progressive Democrats of North Carolina are holding a Progressive Summit on Saturday and Sunday, June 3-4 at the Summit at Haw River State Park north of Greensboro. Go check out their website for more information and to register. I got this announcement last night from Pete McDowell who is president of the PDNC PAC. The main thing he said that caught my eye is this: There's a lot of interest in running a real progressive for Lieutenant Governor in 2008.
To be honest, I didn't even know there was an organization for progressive Democrats of North Carolina. But I like how they're thinking about election cycles. There's a fair chance that the governor in 2016 will be the person who's elected Lt Gov in 2008. No time like the present to get the conversation started. I don't know if I can attend - I'll have to reschedule some travel plans. Anybody else interested? Maybe we can have a BlueNC reunion, or whatever you call a meeting of people who know each other but have never met. Maybe a pre-union?
PS I'm off to NYC this afternoon and tomorrow, with not much time for blogging. As always, thanks for holding down the fort.
