The Watch Dog response: It is with deep sadness that I have to post this release. However I know that my Senator will continue to represent the 1st Congressional District but not limited to with much passion as she has been one of the most effective Senators standing up for the people of NC in spite of going through this time in her life over the past year. But this is truly a godly woman so I ask all of you to support our Senator as she goes through these trying times. She will continue to make us proud and I am looking forward to her moving to a higher office.
