While the Christmas season is in full swing now, right around the corner is election season.  And this season will have none other than Marc Basnight running again, this time for his 13th Senate term.  Mr. Basnight is popular in this county but popular sentiment in the country has shifted.  Now may be the best chance that Republicans have of unseating him.

Republican Ashely Woolard will challenge Democrat G. K. Butterfield for the 1st District US Congressional Seat in 2010.  While Dare County is not in District 1, it is one of our neighbor districts.  It encompasses Elizabeth City, Edenton, Plymouth, New Bern, and much more.  Click this link to see a map of District 1 http://bit.ly/4v87Bj The extremely close vote in the House on healthcare reform shows us that we need to support Republican candidates all across our state.  Butterfield is no moderate.  He’s been in office since 2004 and has demonstrated that he marches in lockstep with the radical left wing of the party.  His ratings include:

  • A 100 rating from NARAL in 2007-2008
  • An F rating from the National Taxpayers Union
  • An A rating from the National Education Association
  • An A rating from Citizens for Global Solutions

I could go on but why…  If you want to find out more about his ratings, or any member of Congress for that matter, go here  http://209.18.106.110/index.htm
