The venue was filled with many of the leaders of the democratic party in North Carolina and many others who are ready for changes in Washington D.C.
The following are some pictures and comments about the evening.
Clay started the day by meeting with the people of HARNETT COUNTY. The following was found on the Harnett Dispatch
CLAY AIKEN MEETS WITH HARNETT COUNTY FOLKS
Congressional candidate Clay Aiken was in Harnett County today meeting with local people discussing our district and the problem that we’re facing. The event was held at the Campbell house located on the University campus. The crowd of 40 greeted and talked with Clay about what they want to see happen for the district. Paul Long hosted the event and introduced Clay to the guest. Clay told the crowd that the district needed representation that was available for the public to get in touch with and talk to. He said that although the 2nd congressional district was drawn to be a safe conservative district, history shows that democratic have done very well and referenced former Congressman Etheridge terms and wins as our congressman.
The older man in the picture is Dr. Bruce Blackmon, a 90-year old Democratic gubernatorial candidate. According to the fuquay-varinaindependent:
He believes that in order to see a change in government, both parties must work together to reach a bipartisan solution.
“I just had a feeling that we can all work together as a state, not just one party as opposed to another party, but all of us working together to solve the problems that come up in the state. We are always going to have problems and we need more statesmen and fewer politicians,” Blackmon said.
It sounds like Dr. Blackmon and Clay have a lot of the same ideas. They did have a nice long chat!
Thursday’s mid-day blog covered Clay’s visit and tour of Campbell University. However, there are a couple more fun pictures from the event.
