In a stunning defeat, the North Carolina House voted down a bill that would have made changes to the Asheville city council. Check out the audio for the House debate around Senate Bill 897.

The Democrats are in a great position to pick up some seats this November– and maybe the Governorship too!

GOP activist slammed for ‘Daily Show’ comments | The Asheville Citizen-Times | citizen-times.com. Great quote in the C-T article, Alex! There’s still so much work to be done. I hope the party at Brew-n-View or wherever you ended up having it went well! I shared this story with Yuco’s family, and they are super-impressed too! You rawk!
