It is a long time before the Republican primaries, but the contest to become the Republican candidate for Congressman for our new District 11 is heating up. So far I have had the opportunity to meet three good, conservative men who know that voters in Caldwell County are critical to their success, Dan Eichenbaum, Vance Patterson, and Mark Meadows. Others are running as well. The winner will go up against the current District 11 Congressman Shuler, a Democrat.
Caldwell County has a significant majority of Republicans, more than all but Henderson County of the 17 counties in District 11. Our votes are not only going to be important in the May primaries, but even more critical in November 2012 in the critical attempt to unseat liberals Governor Perdue and President Obama. Tonight I heard that Obama is now committed to spending $50 million to try to hold onto North Carolina. That is why he chose Charlotte as the location for the Democratic National Convention. We are a swing state.
Because of our number of registered Republicans and conservative independent voters, Caldwell County is pivotal in helping Republicans win the state. We must ensure a high voter turnout to balance the high number of Democrats in the urban counties.
Precinct 31 Republicans, commit now to helping to insure we get out 100% of our Republican voters in 2012! Get informed, get involved, and VOTE.
