I am proud to be endorsed by such a wide range of worker organizations that stand up for their rank and file membership.

Congrats, unions are vital to a stronger Middle Class.

I just hope they increase their strength during the next 8 years. It is probably the fastest way for NC to jump ahead for the middle class.

I don't think that Senator McCain doesn't care what's going on in the lives of Americans, I just think he doesn't know.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I am impressed with how hard many labor organizations are working to reach new members and educate the public on the benefit to everyone of strong and active labor movement. Having the public on board helps when making law.

Full Swing

You may have noticed my postings have slacked off, what with the election just over 60 days away. I'll try to let everyone know what's happening with the campaign, and apologies ahead of time for use/re-use of press releases and other campaign material.

BTW, have I asked for your time or money yet?
