No, he’s not running again.  (It’s amazing how the rumor keeps coming up.)
 
We’re talking about his personal office in the new James B. Hunt, Jr. Library on Centennial Campus at N.C. State University.
 
The Jim Hunt Alumni Association is raising $100,000 for naming rights to the office. 
 
Who are Jim Hunt Alumni? Well, we started out as anyone who worked in any of his campaigns or administrations. Then Rufus Edmisten joined. So we opened the doors to anyone who considers himself or herself a Hunt alum.
 
And the library drive is open to anyone. Some people are giving $1,000 or $500. Others are giving $250, or $100, or $75. Because of the Republicans, times are tight, so we accept gifts of any size.  Best of all, you can spread your donation over five years.
 
Under the Dome ran an item about the effort, with the names of many who have already made their pledges. We’re trying to reach everyone who was involved with Governor Hunt over the years, but that’s hard. So I’m posting this.

There could be no more fitting tribute for a man who dedicated his life to using public funds and public institutions to buy the fawning loyalty of his fellow citizens.

Because of Republicans??? Oh, for crying out loud, put down that kool-aid Gary...give us a break. And, God help us having to NOT have government (taxpayers) fund something.

Sheeeeesh. That kind of thinking is exactly why our state and our entire country is in such horrible shape.
