Together, we can turn Lee County blue!
Gerrick Brenner, Executive Director for Progress NC Action, announced today that he will hold a press conference in Lee County to challenge Rep. Mike Stone to return campaign funds donated by an accused money launderer. Oklahoma gaming software baron Chase E. Burns donated $4,000 to Stone's 2012 campaign, as he did to many other Republican candidates. While other candidates donated to charity in the amount given to them by Burns, Rep. Stone kept the money.

North Carolina Democratic Party Files a Formal Complaint
About 10 volunteers went door-to-door in Lee County today for three candidates: Clay Aiken, Chuck Baker, and Ophelia Livingston. Neighborhood canvassing is the most effective way to reach voters before an election, with phone banking a close second. Today, our volunteers were encouraged by their reception in the community, and the LCDP provided lunch afterward, giving our canvassers a chance to swap stories.
On Saturday, Spetember 19, about 15 volunteers spent 3 hours training to work for Democratic candidates and the Democratic Party. Trainers Gladys McAuley, Jan Tart, and Jay Calendine held sessions on canvassing, phone banking, and poll working. The volunteers in attendance will be part of the overall Democratic Party effort to get out the vote this year!
