Ed Turlington is best choice for NC Democratic Party Chairman!



I'm endorsing Ed Turlington to become NC Democratic Party Chairman. Here's why...

1) He's progressive! (Former Special Assistant/Counsel to US Sen. Terry Sanford; National Deputy Campaign Mgr., Bill Bradley for President; Chief of Staff to former Lt. Gov. Bob Jordan; NC Co-Chair of Kerry-Edwards Campaign)

2) He can deliver on his message on focus areas: organization; winning elections; message and finance. Ed is endorsed by former Gov. Jim Hunt and Gov. Mike Easley. He's a close friend and ally to Sen. John Edwards. Let's face it, he's connected--in a good way.

3) I like Ed! I've watched him from afar and like his style. I first met him at a UNC basketball game (good start). He's a young, fresh voice and has good energy. I believe he has a good grasp of the issues and he doesn't just speak to Democrats. He has a plain-speaking manner that connects with real people.

Guilford County Democratic Party Executive Committee Members should support ED TURLINGTON at the Party Convention in Raleigh later this month!

  • You would think that you might want some associated with WINNERS and Tax Cutters.
    Terry Sanford - NC's Food Tax!
    Bill Bradley - Great Senator and B-Ball Player - Pres Candidate - didn't win.
    Bob Jordon - who? (nobody remembers Lt. Gov. unless they torch their warehouses).
    Kerry-Edwards - didn't fare well in NC.

    The Democratic Party needs FRESH FACES, people that are conncted with winners. The recapture the majority, we can not call upon the past.

  • A comment was made about supporting those "associated with winners". Hitler was "a winner" by some accounts--depending on your perspective in Germany at the time.

    I'll take Kerry, Sanford, Hunt, etc., anyday over state and local Republican leadership. Tax cut what? Yeah, let's pass the Bush tax cut and pass tax increases on to states.

    Yeah, great policies--people tend to get what they ask for... You got it- Bush again.
