A challenger for Mike Stone

Brad Salmon announced Saturday that he will be a candidate for the NC house district 51 seat currently held by Mike Stone. Salmon made his announcement at a Harnett County Democratic Men's Club meeting held in the Barbeque community in western Harnett County. The 51st district includes western portions of Harnett County and most of Lee County.

Salmon is a lifelong resident of the Mamers community where his family has farmed for generations. A product of the Harnett County public schools, he is a graduate of both North Carolina State University and Campbell University, where he obtained his law degree. Salmon continues to farm while practicing law in Lillington.

In announcing his candidacy he emphasized that, "for too long we have had unsteady, shortsighted leadership representing us in Raleigh." He added that his priorities include, "strengthening our economy, protecting our natural resources and building opportunity through providing an innovative world class public education system."

In 2012 he ran for the NC Senate District 12 seat against Republican Ronald Rabin. He lost a close race (51-49) in a heavily Republican district.


Good deal

If anybody needs confirmation of how important this race is, look here. From guns to union-busting, Stone is clearly on the wrong side of justice.

p.s. sorry for the block, Huh. We need more Huh, not less. :)

I haven't met either candidate

But I feel as if I know Mike Stone.

And I'll contribute $ to Brad Salmon sight unseen.

Because I feel as if I know Mike Stone. And the odds of anyone being worse than Mike Stone are minuscule.

Attention Brad Salmon: get a web site up, with a "Contribute" button. And study up on Mike Stone.

Brad is a good candidate he

Brad is a good candidate he is young, energetic, good ideas, common sense, and fire in the belly. He ran a good campaign last time and came just a little bit short. Now that the people have seen the damage that can be done when extremists are allowed to run the show, I think the numbers can be turned upside down. But Stone has tons of $$$$ in the war chest, so it will be a battle.

I'm a moderate Democrat.

Anyone endorsed by "Huh"

is good with me.

Attention Brad: I just doubled my contribution. Can't wait to support you.

Let me tell you about Brad Salmon

I am a lifelong, card carrying Republican. I came to know Brad Salmon quite by accident. I soon discovered he is awash in honesty and integrity. He offered to try to help me solve a legislative problem. His interest was selfless, genuine, and for the right reason. Brad took personal interest and did his best to come to my aid, and this was after election time.

Now I will add that my fellow Republicans, save one, did not care and did not offer any assistance. After this session past, I still consider myself Republican, but almost every other soul in Raleigh I consider rogues, scoundrels, con artists, and liars. And I am not alone it appears.

Sending a guy like Brad Salmon will be a breath of fresh air. He will get stomped on and dissed like every other member who doesn't fall immediately into lockstep with the batch of criminals and thieves in our electorate, but we have to send the honest ones when we can.

Go Brad. You have folks behind you.
