Twitter Web App : "I believe in the values of Lyndon Johnson, who knew that the emancipation of people of color was a proclamation and not a fact. I believe in the values of Robert Kennedy, who taught us that compassion, empathy and also toughness were at the core of our party." #ncga #ncpol

Twitter Web App : "I believe in the values of Franklin Roosevelt, who knew that when people were down that they needed a hand up. I believe in the values of John Kennedy, who said that one person can make a difference, and that every single one of us should try." #ncga

iPhone : Something is rotten in the state of North Carolina! Widespread corruption is undermining the legitimacy of state government. It’s going to be up to us to fix it in 2020. #ncga #ncpol

iPhone : It should not be a surprise to anyone when the court takes up the latest submissions and rejects them. At that point, the expert referee for the case, Nathan Persily, will be directed to develop more appropriate maps. #ncga wral.com/editorial-late…

iPhone : My alma mater (Stetson) is playing some winning football today. If the stadium looks familiar, it’s because they filmed scenes from the Adam Sandler movie ‘The Waterboy’ there. Let’s go Hatters! #ncaa Stetson Football twitter.com/stetsonfootbal…

iPhone : Finally, the rape kit backlog will be cleared. Constant pressure (and election year fear) on the General Assembly has led to this measure, which took far too long to make it through the Republican-dominated Assembly. #ncga

iPhone : Here is a lighthearted moment from tonight’s ‘question and answer’ session after the Laurel Park Precinct’s Democratic candidate forum.

Next to me is Josh Remillard (candidate, House 117) and Preston Blakely (candidate, Fletcher Town Council). #ncga #ncpol

iPhone : A complaint filed Wednesday with the state board of elections is calling for an investigation into @dukeenergy’s political action committee.

The company admits to making illegal donations early this year to eight leaders of the general assembly. #ncga

iPhone : In your face, Duke Energy! Democrat Brian Caskey is bringing the heat in NC Senate District 48.

You wanna see the new Democratic determination to change things in Raleigh? Look no further than NC Senate candidate Brian Caskey of Henderson County. #ncga

iPhone : At last night’s Hendersonville NAACP meeting, I was joined by candidates Danae Aicher (NC House 117), as well as Lyndsey Simpson and Jennifer Hensley (both of whom are running for Hendersonville City Council). Good info all around. Join the #NAACP - you’ll be glad you did.

iPhone : My newly-redrawn Senate district in NC. Does anyone think, bearing in mind that I live where the Apple is on the map, that this district meets the court’s requirement of compactness? Legislators should not draw their own districts! #ncga #gerrymander

iPhone : Individual-1 I spent a winter during college grading tobacco in a barn next to one that had a tractor just like that. Coldest, hardest work I’ve ever done. I was glad when classes started back up!

iPhone : Spotted in a restroom at the Davis Events Center at the WNC Mountain State Fair. Are we this divided along tribal lines? Are Republicans this willing to believe that their friends and neighbors ‘R AMERICA ENEMIES?’ #growup #StopTheHate

Twitter for iPad : The new N.C. House map still contains between one-half and two-thirds of the partisan advantage that was present in the illegal gerrymander.

It may also violate the Voting Rights Act. Will the courts step in and draw the maps? Time will tell... #ncga

iPhone : At the Buncombe County Dem Breakfast this morning, Erica Smith and Trevor Fuller presented their platforms for US Senate. I’ve introduced myself to precinct leaders in the ‘newly redrawn’ part of District 48. The Caskey campaign is off to a flying start as we head into the fall.
