    A candidate who has taken his campaign to the people, traveling over 120,000 miles and visiting nearly all 100 counties, is winning, as he should. Thanks for the poll, Civitas.

    These undecided numbers are PITIFUL, folks. Just one week until the primary! The candidates are who they are; they won’t change in the next week (or even the several months until the general.) Do your research and get on it.

    The best candidate for the #2 job in the state is the one with the proven record in the NC House, the man who has worked from the ground up for many years to build the Republican Party, and the man whose 29 bills have significantly improved the quality of life for all of us – NC House Speaker Pro Tem Dale Folwell.

    My vote for Lt. Gov. will go to Dan Forest. A man that will serve from experience he has gotten from the private sector. He is a wonderful husband and father. More importantly, he is a man of Integrity! For all of the undecideds, please cast your vote for Dan Forest! Run Forest Run!!

    Dan Forest does not take Agenda 21 seriously. He is against developing legislation to stop it. Yet, he is O.K. with the marriage amendment (which I support). That is not consistent so I will not vote for Mr. Forest.
