Senator Carol Moseley Braun Endorses “A Different Kind of Senator”

Dear Curmilus –

I don’t usually get involved in Democratic primary contests, but this race was too important to stay on the sidelines.  In North Carolina we have three candidates vying for the Democratic nomination, but one stands out above the rest.  That candidate is Ken Lewis.

I know what it takes to defeat an incumbent. I have seen Ken’s ability to connect with young voters, progressives, and African Americans, the same groups that drove Barack Obama to victory in North Carolina in 2008.  In an off year election where Democrats are not showing high levels of engagement, Ken is the best candidate to inspire and turn out the coalition of voters that will be necessary to defeat Senator Burr in November.

Your help will ensure Democrats put forward the best candidate to defeat Richard Burr.

But this primary election is about more than political calculation.

Ken Lewis represents a significant opportunity for the State of North Carolina and our country: The opportunity to change the U.S. Senate by changing the kind of Senators we send there. 

Ken Lewis’ background is not like that of most U.S. Senators.  He worked as a janitor, bus driver and fast food employee to put himself through Duke University and then Harvard Law School.

In this down economy he would bring a unique set of skills to the Senate, having spent two decades helping businesses create jobs in nearly every industry in North Carolina. 

At a time when Americans feel forgotten by political insiders, Ken would bring a unique set of experiences, deeply rooted in the community organizations and non-profit associations he has served. 

As Senator, Ken will be responsive to the needs of North Carolinians.  He’ll serve the people of North Carolina because that’s what he’s done all his life.

That is why I am supporting Ken’s campaign.

One stop early voting has already begun in North Carolina.  Election Day is May 4. The campaign is nearing the finish.  Ken needs your vote, and he needs your help to get his message out, organize precincts, and turn out voters.

Your donation will ensure that all North Carolina voters hear Ken’s winning message. Your contribution will go toward field organizers, literature, yard-signs, media and other concrete expenses that will make a real difference in this race.

Now is not the time to sit on the sidelines.  We have a chance to make history in North Carolina just as I made history in Illinois two decades ago.  Ken offers an historic opportunity to make our U.S. Senate a more representative, well-informed, and inclusive place.

This is our time. Ken is our candidate.  He’ll be our Senator, if we all do our part.

Thank you for your support!

Former United States Senator Carol Moseley Braun

Follow the Money in NC Political Races-Burr has raised over $8 Million. So Where Does That Leave You?

There should be an entirely separate category for this crap called WTF RICHARD BURR.  While the Democratic candidates are running all over NC; talking to the middle class citizens learning what we need just to be able to survive, Richard Burr is sitting back counting his cash! 

Do you care about your child’s education? If you said YES, Richard Burr will not help you because you and your child probably don’t have a Political Action Committee. (See Who Are Giving The Cash @ Behind The Scenes Of A TV Show)

I’m supporting Ken Lewis because I believe he is the best candidate to carry this fight forward in the U.S. Senate – Former Congresswoman Eva Clayton

Dear Curmilus,

This is former Congresswoman Eva Clayton. With the May 4 election approaching people have been wondering where I stand. I’m writing today to tell you that I’m standing with Ken Lewis.

As the first woman elected to Congress from the State of North Carolina, I have spent my career fighting for working women and families, and doing my own small part to ameliorate the injustices and inequities we see in the Unites States and around the world. I’m supporting Ken Lewis because I believe he is the best candidate to carry this fight forward in the U.S. Senate.

There isn’t anyone like Ken Lewis in the U.S. Senate. He represents the hopes of his grandmother, a sharecropper born on a North Carolina plantation who believed fiercely in the American Dream, even when it was denied to her.  And he carries with him the conviction of his own mother, a school teacher, that through hard work and commitment to our communities we can make this promise real.

I’m supporting Ken Lewis because he’ll be a committed advocate for people too long shut out of our political process: Women receiving less pay for the same work, families unable to afford basic health care, mothers forced to chose between putting food on the table and paying their electric bills.

In the U.S. Senate Ken Lewis will be a strong advocate for regular people, hard-hit in this down economy. But he needs our support now to help get him there.

Ken Lewis has spent his career providing legal services to community-based organizations and small businesses, helping to create jobs and expand opportunity.  He’s been a leader pushing for affordable housing, fighting predatory lending, and promoting early childhood education.

That’s the kind of experience we need right now in the Senate–experience grounded in the communities that our senators are meant to serve.

Please join me and support Ken Lewis for U.S. Senate. Together we can help build a brighter future for North Carolina and this country.

Sincerely,

Eva Clayton

But my question is we talk about Unity but when will it come a time that other folks will support qualified and intelligent black folks?

Kenneth Lewis was the 1st to announce that he would run for the US Senate. Then I seen where Democrats were calling out folks to run against Richard Burr and some decided not to such as Congressman Bob Etheridge. And then they called out Elaine Marshall and she accepted. But my question is, we talk about Unity but when will it come a time that other folks will support qualified and intelligent black folks?
