On Wednesday, October 29th, Barack Obama held a rally in downtown Raleigh, just six days before the 2008 election. Approximately 28,000 supporters poured into Halifax Mall, the otherwise vacant green space covering the parking deck for the government complex, to hear the presidential candidate’s message of hope and unity. Obama’s Raleigh Speech below the fold.
Sarah Palin will be in Raleigh on Saturday and we have the ticket details below the fold.
The details are slim but the title is true. Palin is coming to Raleigh. (Details added)
North Carolina continues to garner national attention this election as the candidates continue a close race to the finish line.
The political climate in North Carolina is reaching dangerous levels with disturbing reports of overzealous and misguided citizens crossing the line between activism and criminal acts. While many voters view this election as historic and significant, the state is split with regard to which candidate they support. There should be no reason that we can not have a civil political discourse to solve the problems facing our state and our country. Unfortunately, North Carolina has not fared well in behaving civilly this election cycle.
Both Democrats Barack Obama and Kay Hagan have expanded their lead in the latest Public Policy Poll released today.
Early voting for President, Governor and more starts today in Raleigh and surrounding Wake County.
Barack Obama has a healthy, almost 400 point lead, over John McCain in the pint glass elections.

But, instead of health or hygiene, the product is fear laced propaganda.
