Can you spare a square?

September 30, 2008

The North Carolina Republican Party is asking your help with a very important endeavor.  Supporters from Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina have expressed great interest in coming to North Carolina at various intervals over the next six weeks. They are willing to travel to our state at their own expense to help elect John McCain, Sarah Palin, and other Republicans on November 4. 

To encourage their enthusiasm, the Party would like to enlist your help in finding places for these out-of-state volunteers to stay while in North Carolina. If you or someone you know has an extra bedroom and would be willing to open their home to a fellow McCain-Palin Republican, please let us know. The Party will contact them about possibly housing volunteers, particularly students, for some days over the next six weeks.

Please pass this along to anyone you know who may have some extra room.  Thank you in advance for your help in electing the McCain-Palin ticket and other candidates, and we hope to hear back from you soon!

Foxx votes ‘nay’

September 29, 2008

Virginia Foxx (R), 5th District: Voted Against Bailout

Statement: “I voted against this bill because I am very concerned about the unprecedented direction that this economic recovery package would take our country.  This plan puts taxpayers, their children and their grandchildren on the hook for the bad decisions of Wall Street and government sponsored enterprises.  Taxpayers deserve better.”

“This bill was another massive government intervention into America’s economy.  It would have fundamentally changed our marketplace by rewarding financial companies that made bad decisions and placing those who exercised prudence at a serious disadvantage.  And it would have done all this with the tax dollars of hard-working North Carolinians.”


Wow! – Fifth District Meeting.

Most candidates were out on the campaign trail, excepting two. Congresswoman Virginia Foxx remained in Washington to work on the bailout issue and NC Senate hopeful Jerry Butler.
