VOTE IN 2018! VOTE IN 2018! VOTE IN 2018!
I know many already appreciate the importance of increasing voter turnout among conservatives for the Fall Election. It is clearly an imperative. BUT - the data from 2016 tells us there is something even more important than just getting them to the polls. THEY MUST VOTE UP AND DOWN THE BALLOT!
Did you know that of those who cast a ballot in November 2016:
28,076 did not cast a vote for US President.
58,626 did not cast a vote for Governor.
78,507 did not cast a vote for US Senator.
150,106 did not cast a vote for Lt. Governor.
187,015 did not cast a vote for Attorney General.
226,323 did not cast a vote for Ag Commissioner.
229,718 did not cast a vote for Labor Commissioner.
238,364 did not cast a vote for Secretary of State.
251,954 did not cast a vote for Supt of Public Instruction.
256,810 did not cast a vote for State Auditor.
263,846 did not cast a vote for Commissioner of Insurance.
266,856 did not cast a vote for State Treasurer.
Over 300,000 did not cast a vote for Court of Appeals seats.
Over 800,000 did not cast a vote for Supreme Court Justice!
And we wonder why Bob Edmunds lost. It wasn't just ballot placement. How many candidates, constitutional amendments and other ballot initiatives, or even control of one or both houses of the Legislature may fall victim to the same voter performance next time even if we succeed in getting them to the polls? Clearly there is far more to be done.
Thanks to Major Dave Goetze

PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON,
JAILED IN TURKEY!
The North Carolina House has formally asked the Turkish government to release a North Carolina-based pastor from a prison there, saying he's been unfairly charged and detained on accusations of spying or aiding terror groups.
The chamber voted unanimously Wednesday night on a resolution coming to the aid of Andrew Brunson, who is from Black Mountain and has been living in Turkey for more than 20 years as a Christian missionary. Brunson was formally arrested following a 2016 coup attempt in Turkey and wasn't formally indicted until earlier this year.
U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis — the former state House speaker — has strongly pressed for Brunson's release. Tillis visited him in prison and in May attended his trial, which is adjourned until July.
Resolution proponents told colleagues it was right to support Brunson in the name of religious freedom, due process and an independent judiciary. From IslandPacket.com
