Lots of routine comments to start.
Nice speech by Parker.
Voller nomination in progress.
gathered and counted.
The rules were actually agreed to without much fuss.
... And now things get ssllllooooooooowwww.
Environmental Defense Fund
They are proceeding with the election of secretary.
He has many seconders ... Lots of support.
Voller nomination was much more impressive than Etheridge's.
He seems to be in much better health. His Good News is getting much praise.
Beth Wood and June Atkinson are also present.
Very progressive sounding. Good stuff.
Thanks Perdue for appointment to SCONC.
It's about the children. Indeed. Got a round of applause for teachers in the room. Nice.
rah-rah type stuff. Good stuff. Nesbitt listing all the legislation being pushed by R's.
to the room just in time to vote for 1st vice. As expected the vote in between Gwen Wilkins and Nina Szolberg-Landis.
Voller beat Etheridge by about 10 votes.
Sorry for misspelling her name earlier. She has stickers, signs etc.
I didn't vote for her though.
She wins comfortably.
Nina Szolsberg-Landis was named the Vice-chair of the NC Democratic Party Saturday after defeating incumbent Gwen Wilkins 408-175.

That's...pretty damn close. Do they do recounts?
each candidate has 2 observers who watch the votes being counted. They do it twice I think. No challenges once the counting is done.
Votes are only counted once.
That can lead to a recount.
Asian Americans are the new kids on the block
Dick Crews is the first nominee. Co. chair of Avery co.
Zach Hawkins is also in. He is the incumbent.
now on to the replacement of the PoO with a charter and bylaws. Then the haggling and amending will begin. John Brooks has an amendment ready to go that will switch the way county delegates to conventions are chosen. His idea would make the number of registered the key number instead of the votes for governor. This would cut then number of delegates by 70% so fewer people would be making decisions.
I really do not want to stay for that discussion.
Thanks for the updates. It boggles my mind that Etheridge allowed his name to be put into nomination. Looks like the Party dodged a bullet.
We are not amused.
I wouldn't say that. Etheridge would have served ably which is why the floor fight fell six votes short of victory. Hopefully Randy will reach across the aisle effectively and build bridges rather than tacking towards the far left.
Etheridge has done some good things, but then he's also done some questionable things. Not knowing when to keep his cool is also a negative. He was the establishment, corporate, inside the beltway candidate. Voller has proven that he can work the party side of things very well and translate that into electoral victory. We chose correctly imo.
Here is my shaky video of the moment
Progressives are the true conservatives.
Gracious. Generous. Focused. Now for the hard part. Herding cats.
