  1. Went to wncn website to watch the video. Clay sounds great. Speaking with residents, one stated she wonders " why he is running". Does she not have a TV? People should really get educated about the races.

  2. Love the new look!
    Thanks so much for keeping us up to date.
    I'll be thinking of Clay all day tomorrow and wishing him all the best.
    NC needs him!! He has worked hard for this and anyone who watched Saturday's live debate would see that he is by far the best candidate.

  3. I'm praying. Wish I could vote for him, I'm not on NC. He would certainly be a great help to many in Congress.
