    I was there last night and I had a vote as well. As an insider on the process, all we did was state that even with a strong bench of possible statewide candidates and good local organization on the East side of the state and in Raleigh and Greensboro, we are sorely lacking in organization at the grass roots in the smaller counties and towns in the West part of the state that are not Charlotte or Raleigh. We have maybe 46 out of 100 counties really orgainzed well, we can do better. The NCGOP has gained on us with the local pitch to those voters.

    The NCGOP in this state out worked us on the ground in the campaign to Elect Edwards to the National Ticket and Barbara Allen as State Chair did not do all they could to assist us we lacked clot when we went door to door last fall. Jerry Meek offers a fresh downstream look to maximize even more of the opportunities to make NC Blue.

    It will be in the best interests of the other states in the Southeast Region to orgainize as well to understand those folks we are losing to the GOP. They have been peeling those away from us and we in NC made a decision to work grass UP, instead of the TOP Down.....(like Easley and company want to continue). NC can be a leader for change now. We can now dominate this state even more if we do our job on outreach!!!

    Go, Jerry Meeks, Go!

      I wonder how many kossacks were there?   We might have been the deciding factor.  I took Howard Dean at his word that I have the power to make a difference. Once again, the doctor was right.  In just 18 months I have made a difference and I only hope that enough others have come to the same realization. Or are about to.

      It feels good to be on the winning team twice in a row.
