He uses his campaign website to advertise his own business (See "Issues" and "Job Creation").

Does that happen much?

Lance McCord

I went to college with this guy. A friend and classmate recalls that he "ran for student body president, launched this huge (by St. A's standards) media campaign, and then was totally spanked by a girl who decided to run kind of on a whim."

Maybe the Democrats can recruit that girl.

I reposted some links to Tabor's greatest hits over at BlueNC.

This guy makes Jessie look good.

A good time to remind people that it is the Democrats who have maintained veto authority while the districts in NC were Gerrymandered to assure that the majority of races are not worth the nominally other side contesting.


If Nathan Tabor ends up the only Republican running, quit whining and get used to the appellation Senator Tabor.

And Nathan enters the race before the body cool!

Brother Jimbo! You remind me of the dude who thought the world was flat and the sun rose on the west edge of the Square. You need to get up to speed and read the whole Nathan Story at nc rumors.

Has it occured to you that respect of your Christian elders is the first rule if the present Senator is alive and suffering with pain, one would wait until he is honor first instead of looking like a political whore as being the first into the race like Brother Nathan?

Ed Cone

I think Jim's point is that we have gerrymandered districts here in NC, and that means it will probably take a Republican, not a Dem, to beat Tabor. Which is true, regardless of the propriety of the timing of Tabor's declaration.

Could be Ed! But this is the year of the women again and the Big D machine is like the republican revolution of 94 in reverse. Hang around Krogers or your subdivision and folks have already made up their mind for change in November 06 if one listens closely. Frankly my dog is considering running for dog catcher in Cary as a demo.

Jim Capo

Max,
There are about as many Kroger's east of Durham to hang around at as there are Democrats in Senator Horton's distict. Wherever you hang around though you will find that most NC voters do not have a clue as to who their State Sentaor is.

In the presidential year 2004 a typical NC Senate race had 50,000 to 70,000 votes cast in it. Ham Horton ran uncontested and received over 62,000 votes. Approximately half of those were by Republicans who simply chose to vote straight party. Do the math. My dog has a better chance than a Democrat in Horton's district, and I don't even have a dog.

Good news for the Demos is that the probability is high, that as as happened in the past, the Publicans won't even field candidates for a majority of General Assembly seats. This coupled with what looks to be at the moment the successful elimination by Demopublicans of the Libertarian Party from the 2006 ballot means voters in NC will once again not even on paper have a chance to change the outcome as to who will control our state government. Democracy. Yeah.

< It appears that you have not drove east of Durham lately to see all the Food Lions and new subdivisons>

< Congrats! you have just call the voters of North Carolina stupid and dumb. You really know how to win the fans and voters! Don't you? Let's hope nobody and voters notice your outstanding and brilliant political statement in public or at this site>

< Sounds like your dog does not know the meaning of another dog in a free and non-competitive political race. Have you consider using your math to get a cat into the race?>

< Why didn't you say you were a member of the non-existed libertarian party of North Carolina instead of being a repub in drag here. No wonder your former party is still debating Roberts rules Order while the country is going to hell in a Republican hat box? Do you really believe that secret NSA members of both parties control the very, very, very small libertarian party while dress as crossdressing repubs and demo's? >

Democracy. Yeah.* by non-exsisted or whatever lib party member Jim Capo

< The last time I check the Consititution of North Carolian and the United States of America. It still had the term that our Government was form as a republican form of government with democrat access by " We the people" and does not contain the term Democracy [ie.. the worst form of government. Mob rule! or Lynch mob. The majority rules over the minority without the rule of law without the checks and balances against power and abuse to it's citizens]

Jim Capo

Max,
I'm impressed. A Democrat that understands we live under the rule of law in a republic. Maybe I should volunteer for your dog's campaign.

For the record: Most citizens in NC don't have a clue of who their State Senators are becuase the Demopublicans (and to a lesser extent demographics) keep changing district lines on them. They also have limited time to get a clue because they are busy working their butts off to cover the costs of living in the highest taxed state in the South. (I'm told it's because NC is the most advanced.)

Max is not! For a young dude with libertarian thoughts you wouldn't be making that statement on a assumption without facts. If you had study Jefferson you would have not label Max as a Democrat in your Orwellian condition mind to politican terms. There are many faction of democrats just as there is of republicians. The real democrats at the moment is the progressive movement within the party. These really believe in the Constitution and willing to fight for it. Faith base in their spiritual thoughts, free speech professionals and defender of great right among amendment and now great believers in the 2 nd amendment as new and future tyrants show their anti-constitutional colors and reveal their goals of the 21 st century to rule in the name of a phony democracy.>

< another republican myth about North Carolina as the tax monster of the south, The state delievers a hugh educational effort to the university system of this state as demanded by it's citizens. Would you perfer the old system that would leave it's young citizens back on the farm and the 19 th century of communication. If the citizens feel the taxes are to high they will simply vote the bums out when it reaches that point as most citizens do in history or simply pick up muskets and shoot the suckers like our founders did.>
