Here's what scares me most about Hillary Clinton.
Let's say she wins the Democratic nomination. Let's even assume that she could win the general election (probably by carrying my home state of Ohio.)
What is her impact on our elections in North Carolina?
I'm afraid that she would have negative coattails that could have disastrous results for down-ticket races in our great state.
My guess is that in North Carolina, a Hillary lead Democratic ticket could spur in an increase in turnout among right-wingers. If we have close races for Governor or council of state offices, this could tip the race in favor of Republican candidates. We might lose one chamber of the legislature. Even local elections could be impacted.
What do you think? Will Hillary hurt our chances? Would an Obama ticket be better or worse? What about a Clinton-Obama ticket?
If Hillary Clinton becomes our next president, but Republicans win the Governor's Mansion and one chamber of the legislature... Is North Carolina better off or worse?
