Thank You

Your hosting of and participation in my live blogs, inviting me to attend the Blogger Bash, your posts and comments have all contributed greatly to my campaign. Being a member of BlueNC is like adding a think tank to a candidate's campaign staff. Your insight on issues and projections of political trends have strengthened my campaign by strengthening me. I am grateful.

My gratitude also goes out to my family; my beautiful wife Pat, my children Todd, Andrea, and Stacey, their support through this primary process has been amazing and we certainly would not have accomplished what we have without them.

Thank you to my staff for their endless hours of dedication and hard work; Ryan, John, Amy, Miranda, Levi, Bruce, Wade, Chris, and our interns: Cooper, Matt, Tyler, Travis, and Tess. I am fortunate to have an amazing team working ceaselessly on my behalf.

Thank you to all the poll workers, volunteers, donors and supporters who made yesterday's victory possible. You are who I am fighting to represent and it is so encouraging to me that you are fighting so hard too.

I have much respect for Diane Hamby, her well-fought campaign, and her record of public service. I look forward to having her join Team Carter as we focus on the November election. My best wishes go out to her, her family and her staff.

It is time to shift gears and prepare for the November election. Team Carter is expanding, and is pumped up for victory. With a record turnout of voters yesterday, I received more votes than any Democrat in 5th District history. I have never seen a more motivated electorate. Great changes are coming to North Carolina and the United States of America. I am so pleased to be joined with you in being part of those changes.

Again, I thank you all for your support and look forward to reading your posts and comments and hopefully seeing you at a future Blogger Bash!

Roy J. Carter

P.S. Incidentally, I have a blog on my website now, and if anyone would like to cross post there I would welcome you to do so. Contact Levi, my internet communications guy,


We sure will!

Thank you Linda for your kind comment!
Thank you also for commenting on my No Child Left Behind statement. I agree with you that educators should be forming education policy, not politicians.
I was sorry to read about your recent loss. I believe it is immoral that we do not offer higher quality services to our veterans. Our society will not be whole until all people have access to affordable health care including mental health care.

Coach :)

Thank you Roy! It's been an amazing first leg of this journey... the 2nd will be even better! We're here, we know what has to be done and we've already started doing it.

Go Levi!!

Keep on keepin' on, man - you must be doing something right for your guy. Or maybe your guy is right for the job. Anyhow - congratulations on a game well played. :)

I wish I could take credit

I'm just a line backer, (wait aren't those the big guys that do the blocking? all sports metaphors that don't involve a soccer ball or water polo are lost on me). We have a lot of great people working on this campaign and Roy is definitely the right guy for the job!

Bus Tour

Dan it was great having you along on the infamous bus tour. I'm sorry that things didn't work out for you this time around, but I look forward to working with you in the future. Keep fighting the good fight man!

What about Victory 2008!!!

A big W00T for your victory Coach! You are the best candidate and the 5th CD will be lucky to have your representation.

BlueNC is pretty lucky to have you as a member of our community too!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Thank you Momoaizo

Can't wait for the next victory in November!

Great Job, Roy

I look forward to doing all I can here in Wilkes to put you in Washington next year!

Woo Hoo...Congrats, Coach

I was so happy to see you pull it out.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Way to Go Coach Carter!

What a journey this has been and I am so proud of you! Congratulations and I look forward to the next 6 months and your victory over Virginia Foxx in November!

Thank you.

Thank you for dedicating yourself to this important cause! We're fired up and ready to go into the second half!

I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.
