Several weeks ago there was a mini-burst of activity on the Wayne's World blog site by supporters of two candidates for Congress in North Carolina's Eighth Congressional District. I say "two" candidates because about a week ago I received a letter from John Autry's campaign specifically identifying his manager, website, and opening of a committee with the Federal Elections Commission. (Thank you for mailing that to me, by the way.) Autry lives in Charlotte and ran in the 2006 Democratic primary. Larry Kissell, a Biscoe educator, has been a 2008 candidate since the end of his extremely close 2006 race in the general election. And there may be others who haven't officially made their decisions about Congress yet. ...
OK, here is my first set of questions I pose to candidate (Kissell and Autry) and potential candidate (Glazier? Others?), and their respective supporters, alike:
What would a Democratic Congressman in the 8th Congressional District do?
With apologies to David Letterman, what would your Top Ten List be for the Eighth Congressional District?
In other words, what would your action items be?
I welcome your comments and proposals.
