Earlier this month, I started blogging about the institutional changes I think are necessary to not only rescue the North Carolina Democratic Party from its looming insolvency. My goal is to cover five (or 5.5) big thoughts before the NCDP chair candidate forums this weekend.
The election for NCDP Chair is just weeks away. On February 7, members of the State Executive Committee of the North Carolina Democratic Party will meet in Chatham County to elect the person who will lead the party for the next two years. Barring any nominations from the floor, there are four candidates who have announced their intentions to run for the seat - Patsy Keever, Ron Sanyal, Constance "Connie" Johnson, and Janice Covington Allison.
