An awesome email from Schorr Johnson of the North Carolina Democratic Party.
Robin Hayes Might Have Bought Himself Two More Years in Office, But He Didn’t Buy Silence
Today’s Raleigh News and Observer reports, “U.S. Rep. Robin Hayes, a Concord Republican, is trying to stop House votes this week on free-trade deals with Vietnam and Haiti. He believes both deals, favored by President Bush and many Republicans, could hurt North Carolina's textile interests, according to his spokeswoman.”
Robin Hayes is saying one thing, will he do another?
North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jerry Meek said, “Robin Hayes might have bought himself two more years in office by outspending his opponent 4:1 in a low-turnout election, but he didn’t buy silence. Today’s report reminds me of how Hayes was ‘flat-out, completely, horizontally opposed to CAFTA.’ The issues in the 2006 campaign aren’t going away.”
“Thankfully, Robin Hayes will get a new experience in Congress next month: his first term in the minority. Did Robin Hayes get the message the American people sent on November 7th? The people of the 8th District and the North Carolina Democratic Party will be watching.”
I love this rapid response by the NCDP. I love the idea of putting Flipper and the other Party of Greed representatives on notice all day every day. I love the idea of Kissell running hard against Hayes from the get-go, watching his every move and reminding North Carolina again and again of what a worthless piece of nothing Robin Hayes has been in Congress. I love the idea of giving no breathing room, no passes, no breaks, no benefits of the doubt, and no quarter to these people who have methodically destroyed the integrity and honor of our government and our democracy.
Boom. Boom. Boom.
Thank you NCDP.
