From everything I can pick up, the question of who will lead the N.C. Democratic Party next year is wide open.
I personally believe it's important that the new chair be prepared to take an aggressive role as Democratic spokesperson in calling out the new Republican legislative majorities on their extreme policy positions. This needs to start immediately, before the incoming GOP regime has an opportunity to define itself under the false mantle of fiscal responsibility.
Anyone who has studied the actual behavior of contemporary Republican legislators understands that the real priorities are to gut environmental protections, public health programs, and efforts to help the disadvantaged, and press an agenda of privatizing our public schools.
Who can do the job of leading the Democratic truth squad in North Carolina? The floor is open for nominations.
