Elizabeth Dole Visits Brunswick County

A crowd of more than 70 supporters greeted Senator Dole at the Brunswick GOP headquarters this afternoon as she dropped by on her way to a debate in Wilmington. She gave a short campaign speech detailing her work for the state over the last six years and the consequences of the democrats achieving a filibuster-proof majority in the US Senate.

Sen. Dole explained her vote against the recent "bailout" bill saying that there were better, more market-friendly options on the table, such as tax credits for home purchases. She pointed out that her opponent in this election, Democrat Kay Hagan, had basically no opinion on the bailout plan until after Dole had cast her vote.

No matter what you may think of Dole's service as senator over the last six years, this country would be in dire straights with a President Obama unrestrained by a possible senate filibuster. Eighteen million dollars have been spent in the attempt to unseat Senator Dole and she is in a tight race. She needs all of our help to pull this one out, for the good of her and the country.
