Us and Ellerbe
What does Elizabeth have in common with Wadesboro and Ellerbe? We're in the same Congressional District, the 8th. It's an interesting district, mostly rural eastern N.C. with a small hook into Mecklenburg. Hope you've been following the coverage of the 8th Congressional race in the Observer (much of it written by Elizabeth's own Jim Morrill). Incumbent Robin Hayes, a Republican, is challenged by Larry Kissell, a Democrat. There are some pretty clear differences between the candidates. I encourage you to look into them, avoid TV and radio ads at all costs and cast your vote for your favorite on election day.
