Mark Meadows, our local NC-11 US House candidate, has been invited to speak at the RNC convention this week. Meadows hasn’t even been elected yet, and he’s already gained national notoriety. I think we have a real statesman to represent us in Congress.

Because of Tropical Storm Issac, the RNC Welcome activities, speeches are all cancelled for Monday. The convention will briefly convene to open the convention and then recess until late Tuesday. I heard yesterday morning, the national delegates would cast their nominating votes on Monday instead of the originally scheduled day (Wednesday or Thursday). So, I hope everyone can get to the convention to fully participate in the shortened festivities. Let’s hope Issac spares the city of even the mildest of inconvenience.
