On Saturday, August 4, volunteers from across the country will be joining together for a massive door-to-door and phone-banking operation. This will be a huge day in North Carolina, and we’re counting on you to help get the word out!  Sign up today and our local Victory staff will contact you with ways to get involved.
There are less than 98 days until the November presidential election, which gives us less than 2,360 hours to defeat President Obama and Walter Dalton. That's less than 2,360 hours to call voters, knock on doors, and recruit supporters all across this great state. That gives us less than 2,360 hours to regain a #RedNC.  Sign up now to get involved in our Victory efforts across the state!
You can help us by signing up today for a Super Saturday door-walk or phone-bank 3-hour shift anytime between 9am-9pm. Simply click the image below, enter your contact information, and your local Regional Field Director will contact you with information on how to get involved with our Victory efforts.
Sales Tax Holiday Message from Pat McCrory
This weekend is the state sales tax holiday, a time to buy the things you normally buy, only tax-free.
Unfortunately, Walter Dalton agrees with Governor Perdue and wants to raise your taxes every other day of the year. If elected, he promises to increase the sales tax by 15%!
We can't let that happen. At a time when North Carolina is struggling to create jobs and get out of this recession, we should be finding ways to save you money and grow this economy, not tax you more.
I want you to keep more of your money in your own pocket, not give it to the government. After all, you know how to spend your money better than Lt. Governor Dalton and Governor Perdue.
Every day should be a holiday from Governor Perdue and Walter Dalton's 15% sales tax increase.
The only way we’re going to lower taxes and fix this broken economy is with new, honest leadership in the governor’s office. If you agree, please take a moment to click here and share this video with your friends.
