• Glen Bradley for NC House 7 needs your help

    Hello everyone!

    As most of you know, I am running for NC State House out of the 7th District.

    What many of you may not know, is on the last day of filing, I received a primary challenge.

    We did not actually expect a primary challenger, but we do have one. My opponent is wealthy and largely self-funding, but her funds are listed as loans and she will be getting every penny of that back as her wealthy crowd donates.

    Right now we are well ahead. in order to stay ahead we need to compete.

    I am looking at $8000 in direct mail, $2500 in radio, and $1000 in yard signs. So I need to raise $12,000 by April 14th.

    Also, there will be a quarterly report end of March, and some people will be making their electoral decisions based on fundraising numbers, so the better I can do by end of March the better we will be set coming into the April 19th to May 8th voting period.

    So I am asking for the Forum's help in meeting my fundraising goals.

    Thank you all so much, and let's make this happen!

      Lisa seems..."connected".

      I'm also needing money for my project Glen, but I can offer you some time or consulting if you'd like. I've worked in campaigns and marketing (research polling side mostly).

      I admit I read my speech on this one, I do not normally, but I had just put it together based on countering my opponents major points. She is trying to run as "More Christian Than Thou" therefore my expansive section on my faith.

      Well, I watched all 10 minutes Gunny. Watched her 2 minutes as well.

      She is clearly out of her element. You should crush her. But money is funny.

      Never heard you speak before. Pretty impressive.

      Thanks, that one is actually well below my standards. My 3 minutes at Nash is better. The next one will be even better. It's been several years since I was speechifying on the regular. Still waiting for YouTube to finish processing the Nash speeches.

      Fact Check: Does NC Have an Unbalanced Budget? Get the scoop right here.

      One of my opponent’s main campaign issues is that we need to balance the North Carolina budget.


      The topic of balanced budgets is a hot one on the federal level, and any good conservative worth their salt should be concerned about fiscal responsibility and balancing the budget. But does North Carolina have an unbalanced budget?
