My Letter to the Governor.
Governor Mike Easley,
The leadership of great Democrats such as yourself are what continues
to give me great hope for our State and the Nation. Thank you for your
endorsement of Sen. Hillary Clinton for President. While many may
equally complain about your endorsemet, rest assured, there are many
reasonable, engaged, informed voters here in the great state of North Carolina
who remember who our friends are, and that includes the great
friendship of Sen. Clinton.
I have been dismayed by the endorsements of the candidates seeking
higher office in the Primary Elections in North Carolina, who see Mr. Obama
as a coattail candidate and are ignoring the great history and
leadership of Sen. Clinton. We call this pandering, and that is not the way
Democrats are supposed to behave.
We are better than that. I have long said that the Party is not being
"torn apart" as some in the media, and especially supporters of Mr.
Obama, have portrayed our Party. The Party will be united, if the best
candidate is finally endorsed by great leaders such as yourself, who will
put aside their bias and make a wise, intelligent decision about the
future of our country. Thank you for making such a decision.
Precinct Member, Precinct 19, Mecklenburg County
Delegate to the District Convention
