So today Orange County had a very good convention. Starting with good food, and good organization, and great attendance by youth, seniors, and some in betweens.
IT brought home to me how important it is to get out the vote. We could look like Massachusetts, we could look like Wake County. We better wake up.
The Senate candidates addressed us. That was quite helpful to hear. Ms Holly Lewis spoke about her husband Ken Lewis and his career and his family and his hard work in getting himself to where he is now. And his dedication to serving the public in every way. Ms. Marshall spoke about the great accomplishments of confronting fraud, discrimination, saving money, protecting citizens from bad money managers, in her terms as Secy of State. And of her ability to defeat Nascar Racer Petty. I did not get a chance to ask Mr. Cunningham whether he has changed his position on the Employee Free Choice Act. But he gave a good stump speech about his military service and his medals that he has pinned on his children. And of having been the President of the Young College Dems when he was at UNC.
I hope everyone works to get out the vote, in every county. We can keep NC BLUE only by working harder than we did in 2008.
