Richmond County Dems Announce 2nd Annual Morrison-Deane-Goodman Dinner
In October 2006 the Richmond County Democratic Party hosted the largest gathering of Democratic activists, candidates and voters since Governor Jim Hunt's 1980 rally in Rockingham.
More than 500 people attended the rip-roaring rally and fundraiser at the Hamlet Lions Club Fairgrounds four months ago.
Joining us were Larry Kissell, our Democratic nominee for Congress; Insurance Commissioner Jim Long; NCDP Chairman Jerry Meek; Chief Justice Sarah Parker; now-Justice Robin Hudson; State Representative Melanie Wade Goodwin; 2004 Labor Commissioner nominee Wayne Goodwin; and various statewide, regional and local candidates. We had great food, delightful musical entertainment, and many of door prizes.
