Last night, supporters of Kay Hagan knocked on nearly 500 doors during the 92 Days to Kay Canvass. Supporters canvassed communities across the state, from Asheville to Greenville -- and even in Elizabeth Dole's very own Salisbury.
Today marks 91 days until Election Day and our second day profiling another reason for why Dole is wrong for NC:
DAY 91: TRADE
While Kay has unrolled her plan to make trade work first and foremost for North Carolina, Elizabeth Dole has voted with President Bush 92% of the time, supporting his failed trade policies which have left North Carolina’s textile and furniture industry struggling to stay competitive. Elizabeth Dole and President Bush pushed to expand the NAFTA model to Central America, with Dole voting for CAFTA twice, saying it would bring jobs to North Carolina. Really? In 2005, Bush visited a Belmont, North Carolina textile plant operated by R.L. Stowe Mills in order to urge the House of Representatives to pass CAFTA. In 2007, that plant closed permanently. Today, Kay is scheduled to tour a Taylorsville factory where she’ll discuss her plan to keep good jobs here in North Carolina.
