Those are some UUUUUUGLY districts.
I'm in the 13th, and the good news is there is significant overlap with NC Senate 18. The reputation I build in that Senate seat will be critical. But I need to win the State Senate seat first. I just had a meeting with some real campaign organizers and we have a winning strategy hobbled together, but I'm going to need to come up with $35,000 at minimum in the next 8 weeks just to compete in the Primary.
BJ Lawson was able to raise almost a million dollars from one Ron Paul fundraising email. Help me get RP on board by contacting him and asking for his endorsement or a support list from NC. We are literally up against a wall here and out of time.
I basically dropped out in '10 and didn't go to any conventions.. . I'll be doing the county/district/state conventions this year and will try to go to the national. Oh, and in '08 I was one of the Paul supporters who was at the state convention totally incognito and it was a mistake. This time I'll meet up with the other Paul supporters.
For those who haven't gotten involved yet, do it. It is interesting, the other people are cordial and ARE glad to see new people getting involved. The state convention is worth going to and plan to stay several hours past whatever they say it will last - don't have somewhere to be that afternoon or evening... STAY THERE because things are snuck in at the last minute. Oh, and Gunny did an awesome job in '08. I donated to his campaign a couple of times because I was so glad he stood up there and spoke for me/us.
Good to know, although I still haven't gotten a direction from anyone on where the *start* of the delegate process will be, or on what date, or what I can do to prepare. I made a post here not to long ago as well: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...6people)-in-NC
I am registered Republican, in fact I voted for the small government in my county this past Nov.

Go to the monthly meetings and start getting involved. Take some friends with you and talk to people about things you have in common (fiscal conservatism and dislike of Obama are safe areas..).
To prepare? What I learned in '08 was work really hard between now and March to get involved in your local GOP and most importantly get as many people as you possibly can lined up to go to the county and district convention with you. If you can get 10 people who will support you and I'm there with 10 people then we'll each benefit and have a much better shot of becoming a national delegate.
Also... to be a national delegate you have to commit to spending a grand or more to get there, stay in a hotel, etc. It's not cheap.
I don't want to discourage anyone from trying - just understand what you'll be facing. Usually people that have been active in the party for YEARS are the ones elected to become national delegates. Getting on as an alternate is more likely. You will get to vote on other business at the convention when others are taking a break, but probably miss out on the actual presidential vote.
The rural congressional districts are more likely to have opportunities than Raleigh or Charlotte will. The GOP is better organized and people are thick with each other in the large cities. In the other districts, it'll be more of a free-for-all. They cover more counties, and the attendees don't know each other as deeply and may vote for an unfamiliar nominee that comes across as likeable.
