Burr Files For Re-Election

Senator Richard Burr will try for another term he currently holds as the Republican senator for our state.

Burr's re-election paperwork was turned into to the North Carolina State Board of Elections Monday morning.

Democratic Secretary of State Elaine Marshall also filed her paperwork Monday.

Other democrats who have filed since the candidacy period began two weeks ago include former State Senator Cal Cunningham of Lexington, Chapel Hill attorney Ken Lewis and Lumberton lawyer Marcus Williams.

Two other GOP candidates, Brad Jones of Lake Toxaway and Eddie Burks of Asheboro, also have filed to challenge Burr in the May primary.

The filing period closes Friday at noon.

    I have a feeling it will be the year of the Republicans. Hopefully they can stop the shopping spree the Obama administration is on.

    Senator Burr has voted no on most all of the far-left bills, unlike Kay Hagan who has rubber-stamped yes to every democratic Obama bill. Re-elect Burr, fire Kay Hagan.

    Typical response from a lib.Burr is a solid, very smart Conservative who has more compassion and understanding of real world problems than the racist Democrat party and the slavery of welfare they impose on the black race in this country.Libs also need to understand that anti-union is PRO-labor. The unions have destroyed the opportunity for "labor" to work in manufacturing in this country.Every heavily unionized manufacturing industry in this country has died.Electronics, steel, furniture, textiles, automotive and any other union manufacturing segment you can name has died under the union abuses from the 70's-00's. Ask any union supporter what the unions have achieved and they will continually point to the highlights of the 30's-70's.Once those achievements became law the union became obsolete.But of course union leaders were not willing to give up their money and power. Union leaders SUPPORT amnesty for illegals so they can undercut wages and take American jobs.But they get dues!!

    there are no good republicans....they are not for you/me the true middle class..only interested in fear mongering, obstruction, not creative discourse, and the support of the MANAGEMENT of big business/insurance, not the worker, antilabor..I get his e-mails and he strikes me as none too bright..hope he gets his butt kicked,

    Senator Burr should be a shoe-in for reelection. The other candidates are not known to anyone outside of their home towns. Senator Burr has accomplished alot.
