I owe all of you an apology. I've recently railed and ranted about the lack of Democratic support in NC's 3rd Congressional.
Perhaps it's choosing the wrong candidate to run against Walter B. Jones, Jr., perhaps it's lack of resources or maybe a need to concentrate on the 'easily winnable' districts (although we know that NC 8 and 11 will not be easy to win), but I'm sure that there's a logic behind the Party's decisions.

Bullies are in control with total disregard for our civil rights. We have to re-take our "integrity" in this world, which has been abused and convoluted by Bush and his Administration and a Confused Congress, which Walter Jones, Jr. advances and helps sustain.
