I have heard rumors that our Lt. Governor is running to replace Bev Perdue but have yet to see any concrete evidence of such. I do not watch tv, so have missed any ads or debates. I have seen his website, but three (3, three, tres, san) email contacts have yet to be answered. I even volunteered for the Dalton campaign at his website without a response of any kind. I think now, perhaps, that it's just a front; nobody is really there. I haven't even seen any ads online or heard ads on the radio for Mr. Dalton. Not a campaign sign exists in the whole of Person County so now I think this whole Dalton campaign could just be gossip or some warped rumor.
Ok, so some hyperbole in the above paragraph, but the point is that Dalton seems to be going the way of Bowles. He is staying on the interstates and running tv spots. Bowles proved that style of top down campaigning did not work, twice. Perdue actually came to Person County and we got her 9000+ votes; she even outperformed Obama. I realize I am not the be all end all of local politics, but ignoring 3 offers of help from a former county chair, SEC member and still involved activist seems rather silly. Even if I were not any of those things, ignoring any assistance when you are down by a wide margin with a month to go is just inexcuseable. That is not how winning campaigns operate.
So if there are any Dalton folks out there, hit reply. I am still more than willing to lend you a hand and bring some visibility to your campaign up here in Person County.
