I pledge to run a clean campaign, and I invite my primary opponents to join me.
Today I signed a Clean Campaign Pledge, and I asked all the Democratic candidates in the race to join me. I think voters are tired of mudslinging and attack ads. While I don’t believe my opponents in this race would participate in such despicable tactics, the Clean Campaign Pledge gives all of us an opportunity to promise that we will talk about the issues.

As Democratic primary candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives in North Carolina’s 10th Congressional District, we hereby agree that the people of this district deserve a positive campaign. They deserve a campaign on the issues most important to them – not one full of cheap, divisive attacks.
We anticipate that all of the candidates will sign the pledge and provide a Congressional campaign that we can all be proud of.
