Just a quick link to a letter to the editor from Monday's Lexington Dispatch in support of Cal Cunningham:
I met Cal Cunningham once several years ago when he was serving in the North Carolina State Senate. A colleague and I had traveled to Raleigh to speak to lawmakers on behalf of early childhood education issues. We arrived without appointments, but in spite of his secretary saying that he had meetings scheduled, Cal gladly welcomed us into his office. While we were speaking with him, I noticed people standing outside his door. Not wanting to take more than our share of his time, I tried to excuse myself; he obviously had people waiting.
He insisted that we stay and said, "Don't worry about them, they're just lobbyists." So we stayed a bit longer.
From that day, I was a fan.
