Well, I don't know, Gary. Chad Barefoot won in 2012 by a WIDE margin. It wasn't even close in the 18th which is arguably a toss-up district. And, now he serves on many committees and is pretty much looked at as being a very solid member of the NC senate...having only been there for just a couple of years. Not sure you're being totally accurate in your presentation here. I am glad you admitted to your bias because it sure did show in your diary.
I'm sure Sarah Crawford is a really energetic, wonderful campaign worker with a big-time ability to get donations and stuff. That's not actually what most folks are looking for in their selection to be a representative for them in the Raleigh legislature. I'm one hell of a stand up comedian in my circle, but that doesn't mean I'd be a big hit in Nashville...get the point?
The Wake/Franklin county district might be persuaded to to with Sarah Crawford if there was some scandal for Chad or if suddenly something tainted the republican brand in NC. Right now, unless the left in our state can work the coal ash spill to go against all republicans, I think yhour post is more about wishing and hoping than truth and reality.
Good try though. Maybe one of those folks you mentioned in this diary of yours will pay ya some bucks to help them. It's worth a try, think?
