Your North Carolina Delegates

I hadn't met our North Carolina delegation until I walked in Monday night. I asked all the people in charge where the North Carolina delegation was sitting so I wouldn't have to walk in and trudge around the floor looking for them. I finally found our delegation. Thinking back, I don't know why I didn't spot them from across the floor. They were the only delegates who were on their feet, dancing, singing, waving signs and cheering and that was at the beginning of the night before any of the big name speakers were on.

Their energy and enthusiasm are infectious. The first night we had more camera crews hanging around our area than any other delegation. They just kept coming and the energy of our delegates never waned.

69 Days: Dole puts politics over people and hurt North Carolina farmers

DAY 69

This month, Kay unveiled her comprehensive plan to reinvest in rural North Carolina, including its important farming economy. She crossed the state from wind farms in Beech Mountain to Pender Sharp’s farm in Sims to a fish house in Wanchese talking about her ideas to keep North Carolina’s rural communities vibrant. Yesterday, Elizabeth Dole responded by claiming she has been a “strong advocate” for North Carolina’s farmers, but when has she shown any dedication to them? When she voted against relief for crop losses, against energy tax credits for farmers, and against increased relief to farmers plagued by droughts and floods? What about when Dole voluntarily gave up her seat on the Agriculture Committee? Her decision to lead the NRSC in the 2006 election cycle put politics over people and hurt North Carolina farmers who needed a voice on the Agriculture Committee.

Read the entire post to read more on today's reason on why Elizabeth Dole is wrong for North Carolina and check back for updates over the next 69 days.

Dole attacks Freedom of Religion and does not attend church often

Under the Dome is reporting that Elizabeth Dole is criticizing Kay Hagan for receiving support from "anti-religion" groups.

Republican U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole is attacking Democratic challenger Kay Hagan for raising money from “anti-religion activists” at an upcoming event in Boston.

Hagan is appearing at a fundraiser by two people who do not follow the tenets of Christianity, a clear attack on our Constitutionally-derived rights to Freedom of Religion.

Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
