DownWithTyranny!: Two Democratic Candidates in N.C.– LARRY KISSELL AND HEATH SHULER
Howie Klien has explored two of North Carolina’s options for Democratic representation in the house, and get the corrupt, tie breaking CAFTA congressmen out of office. I agree with the opinions he’s drawn about Kissell and Shuler. I wonder when Bill Glass will begin to attract attention. He’s running against Sue Myrick, (R-9th CD), who rode the “Contract with America” to Congress in 1994. It seems to me that their 12 years is up, to deliver an accountable House (HA! I amuse myself….). Thanks to BlueNC for letting me even know that Bill Glass was running against Sue, and that Patrick Henry (he who voted against the Voting Rights Act) has an opponent too.
Now go read Howie’s great article about the two races that are getting netroots support. You can add your own, too. 😉
North Carolina has 13 congressmen. Six are Democrats and they all seem pretty safe bets for re-election in November. All 7 Republicans have Democratic challengers but two are already poised to defeat powerfully entrenched GOP incumbents. What these two races have in common is that their opponents are both far right loons and Bush rubber-stamps. Let’s take a quick look at each of them and the districts.
