Council of State Tour of Eastern NC


History is being repeated. Once again the Democratic Council of State candidates are touring North Carolina together, reminiscent of the days of North Carolina icons Jim Graham, Thad Eure, and Harlan Boyles. Joining the Council of State slate are Democrats running for non-partisan judicial seats and surrogates for Kay Hagan and Beverly Perdue, Tilden Hagan and Emmett Perdue. It is believed that a surrogate for the Obama-Biden team will be on board. Judicial candidates are Jim Wynn, John Arrowood, Cheri Beasley, Kristin Ruth and Sam Ervin. Local candidates will be joining the tour in their respective districts. In Craven County Alice Underhill, Greg Muse and Craig Weber will be among the local candidates coming out to meet voters.
