It was the proverbial dark and stormy night, but spirits were high, the food was the best that the Democratic Women of Moore County can provide (and that's saying something. I'll put J.H's pound cake up against anyone's in the state), and anticipation filled the air. A group of about 25 of us had gathered to meet with Rory Blake, candidate for US Congress, NC-06. Dr. Abraham Oudeh, candidate for NC Senate in District 52 was on hand as well, and as the we settled into our chairs, he told us, "I smell Victory!" With that he introduced Rory Blake.
Rory's message was simple: "I'm not running against a man, I'm running against a system that is broken." Like most of us, Rory is horrified by the breakdown of our government since 2000. "They've gotten us into a horrible war that nobody wants to be in, nobody likes us around the world,and we've got the worst deficit we've had in this country - ever."
