Each of the candidates for the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor have pages of issues and stances, all telling us what changes they want to see in North Carolina. BUT. It is the LIEUTENANT Governor position. It isn't the Governor, it is the North Carolina equivalent of Vice-President in most respects, a position famously described thusly:
“Once there were two brothers: one ran away to sea, the other was elected Vice-President - and nothing was ever heard from either of them again”
-Thomas R. Marshall
So, forget all the pomp and circumstance, what will you DO as Lieutenant Governor? This is an open letter to each of candidates, feel free to stop by and let me know, because I really am curious. More below the break.
