The run-off for Sec. of Labor for Democrats will be held on July 17. The Independent Weekly has endorsed Marlowe Foster.
The Republicans have a few contested elections that feature John Tedesco of Wake School Board fame running for Superintendent of Public Instruction and former Wake Commissioner Kenn Gardner for Sec. of State. Gardner is mainly remembered in Wake county for his Cary Acquatic shennanigans.
My particular target for 2012, Tony Gurley, is in the run-off for Republican nomination for Lt. Governor. This what INDY Weekly writer Bob Geary says about Tony:
We know Tony Gurley, a smart guy and a three-term Wake County commissioner, best. He's a libertarian; he's a moderate; he's whatever getting elected requires him to be. Running in a statewide GOP primary this year, he's required to be right-wing, and so he is...
Of course, if you are voting GOP for Lt. Gov. in the 2nd Primary, what good choice is there? Gurley has to defeat Congresswoman Sue Myrick's son, Dan Forest of Raleigh, who has had ads that seemed to channel Forest Gump.
Just a reminder that if you voted in May Unafilliated, you can vote again in the run-off election in July.
You can request a mail in absentee ballot, and that is what I am doing. Instructions on what is required for an absentee ballot request is available online.
