to support Russia.
This district was drawn competitive with a slight R. Jeff Jackson is running.
Hey folks, I'm running for North Carolinas new 14th congressional district.
You deserve leadership that is honest, decent, and hardworking. No corporate PAC money, no stock trading, just a serious approach to our challenges.
This is Day One. Your support now means a lot: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/jnj-social
This district is less than a week old. It came to be when our new congressional map reached its final form after an extensive back-and-forth between the courts and the state legislature.
Our family wasn't planning on running for Congress this year - not one bit. But seeing this new district, I told you yesterday that our family would talk about getting into this race during dinner. We did, and theyre all in.
I also invited everyone to reply to our last email with your thoughts about whether we should run. As of this morning, 1,265 of you did - and your encouragement has been overwhelming.
This all happened suddenly - but were ready. We have the support, the infrastructure, and the experience to hit the ground running.
I want to finish what we started last year by making this a campaign you can be proud of.
Were going to talk about a lot of issues - affordable housing, early childhood education, transportation, climate, gerrymandering, and much more - but I want the core of this campaign to be something you can respect because you see an effort that fundamentally respects you.
If thats what you want in a member of Congress, then please make a day one contribution.
Were going to need to build this campaign fast, and our speed is going to come down to the level of your support.
The 14th district includes Mecklenburg - where I serve as state Senator - and Gaston - where I worked as an assistant D.A.
It would be an absolute honor to serve its citizens in the U.S. House of Representatives.
All the Best,
Larisa Alexandrovna Horton
The Ides of March.
Take all oligarch money, property, evict all of their spoiled brats from EU and American schools. Suspend all travel visas. Dont buy or sell anything to or from them. Deny them medical treatment everywhere outside of Russia. Dont let them land their planes or park their yachts. Issue international arrest warrants for all of them. Make it impossible for them to breath as free men. Then they will take care of Putin.
The oligarchs are the only ones who can stop Putin now. And he must be stopped. We know what he is. We have seen his kind before and we did not act early enough. Hes got nukes. And I am no longer confident that we are dealing with a sane creature.
Ides of March. No war. Just a clean fix.
Tell me I am wrong?
Whats going on there with the roads in town and around campus - Clear, icy?
People asked for him to start a GoFundMe to help him. Instead, he made one to help the homeless.
I know the signal is they consider themselves in wartime and there will be no mercy for those they see as the enemy. Democrats, BLM, left organizations, liberal churches, schools, vaccine clinics, etc
are their enemies.
NewHendoLib posted a while ago that he was noticing American flags popping up more in his area. I am in that same area and noticed the uptick in my neighborhood. Also confederate flags and now these black flags.
Madison Cawthorn reps our district. Mark Meadows before him. Cawthorn told these people to be armed and dangerous.
I just warned the Unitarian Church what the black flag means that their neighbor is flying. They get vandalized a lot - every time they put up their rainbow flags and other inclusive signs.
This feels different. This is Trump, Mike Flynn, Steve Bannon, and Madison Cawthorn readying the Q Qrazies and far right extremist nutcases for local violence against their own neighbors.
I dont know how to post here from Facebook. If someone can please post. Thanks.
I am calling on our Lt. Governor, Mark Robinson, to resign.
As you can see from this video, this week he angrily referred to the LGBTQ community as "filth."
Then he says, "Yes, I called it filth."
There's no debate here. This is open discrimination. It is completely unacceptable.
This fits a pattern from him.
He's made many openly hateful and discriminatory comments about the LGBTQ community and Jewish people.
When asked about it, he always doubles down.
I serve in the state Senate.
As Lt. Governor, he presides over the state Senate. It's his primary duty.
As a member of that body, I have a responsibility to clearly state that this is not a position that should be held by someone who is plainly and proudly discriminatory.
The NC GOP is *absolutely* clearing a path for him to be their gubernatorial nominee in 2024.
If he runs, he's all but certain to be the Republican nominee. He is immensely popular within his party - and I imagine he still will be, even after this.
The last thing our state needs is open discrimination from someone in high office.
It tells a lot of wonderful people - our friends, family, neighbors - that someone who represents them thinks they're all beneath basic dignity.
No one should find that remotely acceptable.
But the fact that he feels comfortable saying this - confident that not a single elected member of his party will stand up to him, as none have - is why this is about more than just him. There's no shortage of enabling going on here.
Yes, I work hard to stay positive in my campaign.
No, that doesn't mean turning a blind eye to clear violations of basic decency.
You have to call that out - and let people know what happened. That's how we do the work of defending those standards.
And I really cant stand bullies. Thats all this man is.
When you stand up to bullies, you catch them by surprise. They count on people stepping aside.
That's not going to happen here. Please join me in letting him know.
To our LGBTQ friends who were the targets of this discrimination, youve had to put up with this hate for far too long.
This kind of behavior should be part of our past, not our present.
Were going to prevail over it, again, and move closer to full equality and dignity.
