Full disclosure: I have been working for Renee Ellmers for Congress since May. I have gotten to know Renee really well and the more I know about her, the more I like her. She is the real deal. Renee is running against Bob Etheridge in congressional district NC-2. Etheridge is famous most recently for his hit YouTube video, but he has been on my radar for years because NC-2 is my home district. He has voted for higher taxes and bigger government for years, but over the past two years has really gone all out for the Obama agenda voting for the spendulus, cap and tax, Obamacare and just about anything else Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have proposed. He has voted with Pelosi 97% of the time.
This year is the best opportunity we have had to defeat Bob Etheridge and get a common sense conservative elected to this seat. But Etheridge has faced little opposition during his 14 years in the Congress and has built up a million dollar war chest which he will be spending soon on television ads. This seat is winnable, but Renee needs money to be competitive. Today the campaign is doing an "End the Stranglehold" moneybomb. Please contribute what you can. This is a great way to make a difference and turn a blue seat red. Please pass this along to your friends. Tweet it. Share on Facebook. And if you are a blogger, grab a graphic to support the campaign. Thank you.
