Brandon and Wilson: "What could the News & Record Editorial Board be thinking?"

"Brandon is better candidate in state House District 60 race

...a veteran political consultant...

...On Nov. 2, he faces Republican Lonnie R. Wilson.

...Brandon is politically savvy. Besides consulting work, he's been involved in grass-roots party politics here and elsewhere.

Wilson...describes himself as a Christian conservative voice calling for free market competition, personal responsibility, limited government and more state accountability in spending and budgeting.

Brandon...wants the state to join with area colleges in funding research leading to new technology jobs.
If the state is about to run a $3 to 7 million deficit,
does the News & Record Editorial Board
want Brandon to push for funding, whether or not it has to be borrowed,
or whether the state can afford it or not?
Brandon also strongly supports continued state funding for the furniture market...
Wilson says he does not, asserting that the market should stand on its own feet.
Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism
because it is the merger of state and corporate power

Benito Mussolini
...Brandon's fresh approach to representing a diverse constituency and his positive take on government would be a refreshing change from Jones' often self-serving tenure.
Self serving in what ways?

If Mr. Jones is a part owner of the Civil Rights Museum with Skip Alston,
how is it that the museum budget is $3.1 million, with a payroll of about $1 million?

What is the other $2.1 million spent on?

If the News & Record reported about the museum's budget,
why didn't the paper find out what the rest of the money goes to?
...House District 60 voters would be better served by sending Brandon to Raleigh. "
...if Brandon represents his district the way he campaigns,
District 60 will be well represented in Raleigh.

They're thinking "Please don't send more of our fellow Democrats to political hell and a futile search for a job in the private sector! Please, please, please...!"
