  • Just Days Away

    “Registered Democrats are 3.4 percent behind their same-day totals from 2012, while registered Republicans are ahead of their same-day totals at 6.2 percent and registered unaffiliated voters continue to move ahead of their same-day totals, at 37.7 percent. Democrats have been slowly chipping away at their deficit, while unaffiliated voters and Republicans continue to grow their expansion.”
    This is from an analysis of early voting by Old North State Politics Blog.

    In just days, polls will have closed, and we will learn the results of this year’s election. We cannot allow our sweat, tears and hard work be in vain.  We Democrats must turn out so we can win!

    The good news: we have through Saturday to vote early and all day on Tuesday, November 8th.  The bad news: we need to increase our turn out by at least 8%.
    Right now, we need you to call 25 of your friends and remind them to vote.  We need you to post on social media reminders to vote.  Through election day, we need you to get 25 more people to the polls.  
    In Orange County, we increased the turnout in 2014 for Kay Hagan—we can do it again in 2016 for Hillary, Deborah, Roy, and Josh Stein.  They are counting on us.
    Onto victory!

  • Statement on Orange County Republican Headquarters Attack

    From Orange County Democratic Party Chair Matt Hughes:

    I got a phone call Sunday morning that the Orange County GOP headquarters was essentially firebombed and graffiti spray painted across the building referring to Republican Nazis needing to leave town “or else." This sort of behavior is completely unacceptable, criminal, and goes against the very principles of our democracy and civil discourse.

    Sunday afternoon I spoke with Daniel Ashley, the Orange County GOP chair. They are still assessing the damage and working with law enforcement to identify a perpetrator. I let Mr. Ashley know the the local Democrats are willing to help in anyway possible during their recovery and that our thoughts are with them.

    Below is the statement released by the NCDP and our chair Patsy Keever.

    NCDP Statement on the Attack on Republican County Party Headquarters: The North Carolina Democratic Party strongly condemns this attack. Violence has no place in our political system. We hope the perpetrators of this attack are brought to swift justice, and we are thankful that no one was hurt. Our deepest sympathies are with everyone at the North Carolina Republican Party. – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairwoman Patsy Keever Democratically yours, Matt Hughes, Chair Orange County Democratic Party

    PS - An email sent earlier this week said there would be a debate watch party in Hillsborough. This was erroneously reported. However, there will be a debate watch in Hillsborough for the third and final presidential debate.
