ECU Alumnus Seeks GOP Nomination For Governor

A businessman from just north of Charlotte who is a former ECU student body president has entered the race for governor on the Republican ticket with some innovative and unique views.

Jim Mahan of Denver NC says he wants to return prayer to every public school in the state and a would have full employment in North Carolina after 185 days in office.

Mahan also says he wants to challenge all North Carolinians to lose 10 percent of their body weight and start a sports activity, wants to require banks to fund all acceptable loans within 30 days of an application and would turn around the real estate industry with a program called "Buy a House."

Mahan is the cofounder of Carolina Eye Care Technician School in Denver and is also a realtor, a former teacher and a former college and tennis player at Lees McRae College.

    WHAT?! A conservative came out of the liberal factory that is a public university. I wonder what Santorum would have to say about this.

    Common sense and joey bob, I wish you two would put your real name and address on here so people would know where to come to put their foot up your butts. You two must be some left wrong nuts to talk trash about a man you don't even know.

    We need more information on this young man. People might not vote for him unless he explains how and why he is the best candidate. Good Luck and may God Bless America and all the people who want peace and prosperity.

    And he also wants to start a pension fund for the leprachauns that live in his trunk.

    Only the governor's race!? This guy's clearly nutty enough to be in the GOP presidential primary. He should set his sights a little higher.

      Well, you might as well figure what nutty GOPr you want. Why the president is at the same point Bush was at the end of his second term. Even Jimmy Carter was higher than this. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16 (see trends). That’s the president’s lowest rating in over a month.
