Where does McDevitt stand on abortion, the marriage amendment and charter schools?

If he promising funds for everything, where is he going to get the money? Does he propose raising taxes?

If he is going to reach across the aisle, which of his core principles will he give up?

Will he oppose his own party for the good of the people in his district?

Mr. McDevitt,

I have another question for you in regards to your belief. The ACLU has just issued a warning to the General Assembly about theirs prayers. In other words, their prayers were too religous and contained the use of God and Jesus too much. How do you feel about this and what would be your response to this letter of the ACLU? As a member of the General Assembly if the ACLU forced an order for you to take your Bible out of your office, what would you do?

Tell him that WBTV is waiting for his response and he will show up but as far as giving a truthful answer, I doubt it.

It looks like the teabaggers are locked and loaded. Here's a tip: A little common sense and intelligent thought would go a long way towards making you wingnuts appear sane.

Yeah, I know. Wishful thinking.

Not talking politics, he was our sheriff for 20 plus years and seen him twice outside of the office except when he broke his neck to get his picture in the newspaper or on television. I guess you've heard of bailing out his buddies son on a drug deal. There's enough crooked polititians in government now, no need to add another.

Don't you just love the way he run for re-election knowing that he was going to retire? That way he could choose who he wanted in office. Perfect example of how the taxpayers will be represented if he is in Raleigh.

What I really love is how he wrote a letter to the da asking that a cops son be turned over to rehab instead of going to jail for 6 years like anyother person would have. He stated in the letter that he always wanted to help one person and he believes that this is the one that he can help. I just dont believe that its right. To write a letter as former sheriff to help someone stay out of jail what about all the other people that has went to jail over being addicited to pills or anything for thst matter do they not deserve a chance just like him. Oh i guess not if their parents werent cops. All that I can say is if a spotted dog was running against Mcdevitt the spotted dog would most def. have my vote.

15 hours and waiting. It's a good chance that this would be the same sound that you would hear if he were in Raleigh.

Mercy, is McDevitt trying to ride two horses one to the right and one to the left. A leftist cannot win in this district. He canot serve two masters. Do you approve of abortion and the marriage of gay people or not?

No one that knows him would expect him to respond, but since we now have some cowardly, name calling 'terds responding, he may just answer. That's his kind of people.

Micky D is just like Mel Cohen. Like it or not, he will be part of our lives FOREVER! When Mel gives it up, expect he will have a Hand Picked Successor just like McFluck.

Mcdevitt,

Is it not possible for you to answer these question?
The voters would like an answer in order to determine if you deserve their vote..
Do you support abortion?
Are you opposed to the Marriage Amendment?
Are you going to raise taxes?
Do you support unions or similar orgaizations?
What is your view on same sex marriage?
These are not difficult questions. Just tell the voters where you stand.

Okay, I understand you are for the Marriage Amendent and you are against the Marriage Amendment.

Based on the facts on the North Carolina State Board of Election individual members, You will need to raise nearly $400,000.00 to beat Daniels. I do not think you can do it. The Democrats do not have the money to help you.

I am not impressed with what I see. How in the world are you going to debate a lawyer?
