Yesterday, two of my respected opponents in the Lieutenant Governor race engaged in a rhetorical battle over their positions on several issues of genuine concern to Democrats in our state.
This presents a good moment to emphasize my own record on those important issues. In my discussion, I emphasize experience not just because of how valuable it is to an elected official in translating stated positions into effective action. I also believe that candidates' records tell you what they genuinely believe in, far more than just what they say during the heat of a campaign.
I am running on my record, as a progressive North Carolina Democrat with the record and experience to prove it.
After the jump, you'll find the issues on which my opponents engaged yesterday—and my record on them.
Frontpaged by A, with pleasure. It's very wonderful to see this kind of substantive discussion so clearly presented.
