Groundhog Breakfast to Kick Off the Political Season

The Harnett County Democratic Men's Club will be holding their annual Groundhog breakfast Saturday, February 8th. Breakfast will begin at 8:30. The keynote speaker this year will be retired Chief Judge of the North Carolina Court of Appeals, Gerald Arnold. This year the club will honor all of the past county chairs that have worked tirelessly to promote Democratic Party principals and elect good Democrats to office, from the local to national level. With the first day to file for office Monday, expect a number of perspective candidates to be in attendance. All Democrats are cordially invited to join the gathering. The event will be held at the Government Complex in Lillington.



I just have not acquired a taste for groundhog, especially for breakfast (sorry, couldn't resist :-).

Go Harnett Dems!

Is the biscuit homemade?

It's the Democratic MEN, not

It's the Democratic MEN, not the women. :>) They are homemade at Bojangles! It isn't that we can't cook, we just aren't nearly as industrious.

We had an outstanding turnout

We had an outstanding turnout this morning! There were over 150 loyal Democrats in attendance. Speakers included Bob Etheridge, Elaine Marshall, David Price, Wayne Goodwin and master of ceremonies Gerald Arnold. One of the original organizers of the Groundhog Day Breakfast, the late C. P. Stewart was remembered as were the past county chairs. There were a large number of elected officials and candidates in attendance, with several announcing their intention to run for the first time. Two of the three Democrats intending to run in the 2nd Congressional race were in attendance. Newcomer Clay Aiken spoke of holding Renee Ellmers accountable for her voting record and former Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco emphasized job creation and education. SSC justices Hudson and Beasley each spoke as did NC CofA Judge Mark Davis. In General Assembly races Joe Langley announced a run to unseat Ron Rabon in the 12th Senate District. In House District 51, Brad Salmon will be challenging Mike Stone and in the 53 educator Susan Byerly announced that she will attempt to unseat David Lewis.

I'm a moderate Democrat.
