Recent Email from Thom Tillis,

It's a fact that Kay Hagan continues to benefit from millions of dollars in spending by liberals like Harry Reid, Michael Bloomberg, and George Soros. They're supporting her - and attacking me - for one reason: as part of a desperate attempt to protect Barack Obama's extreme liberal agenda in Washington.

The good news is we're fighting back with a bold, conservative agenda and the support of thousands of grassroots North Carolinians. We set aggressive fundraising goals for each month, and as of this morning, we're just over $5,000 short of our online fundraising goal for the month of July. Help push us over the finish line by making a contribution of $35 or more here.

We won't ever match the millions in out-of-state special interest money being funnelled to Kay Hagan's campaign, but your grassroots contributions will give me the resources to get our message to every supporter and undecided voter between now and Election Day.

Thanks for your support,

Thom

Really Thom, how about the money you are getting form the Koch Brothers and others who are destroying this country? Who wants to take us back to the days of Jim Crow.

 

Kay may not be perfect, but she is a better choice than you any day of the week..

Moral Monday Returns to the Mountains on Monday, Aug. 4

Moral Monday Returns to the Mountains on Monday, Aug. 4 to Mobilize,
Register and Educate Voters ahead of November through the Moral March
to the Polls Campaign

DURHAM, NC - A year after Mountain Moral Monday, named 2013's "Most
Valuable Protest" by The Nation magazine, where people of all
backgrounds gathered in Asheville to rally against regressive public
policies, the North Carolina NAACP and the Forward Together Movement
are heading back to the mountains on Aug. 4 for a Moral March to the
Polls rally.


At this year's Mountain Moral Monday, the Movement will focus on
mobilizing the western portion of the state to register, educate and
turn out voters this November.


"Returning to Asheville marks the 66th week of the Moral Monday
campaign," said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the NC
NAACP. "After a year of mobilizing in the courts, in the newspapers,
and in the streets, we are shifting our momentum towards the ballot
box. This state legislature wants to silence our voices by suppressing
our votes. But we will not be silenced. We look to our friends in the
mountains to stand up - to register, organize and vote this November."


On Monday, Aug. 4 at 10:30 am, Dr. Barber will join local leaders of
the Mountain People's Assembly and other community partners at a Moral
Monday press conference at Hopkins Chapel AME Zion Church.


The Moral Monday rally will begin at 5 pm in Pack Square in downtown
Asheville. People from across Western North Carolina and beyond will
gather to hear from moral leaders, community members and young
activists as they speak truth to the power wielded by this extremist
General Assembly.
