Live Blog with NC--5 Candidate, Tuesday the 12th (DFA)

Democracy for America endorsed U.S. Congressional candidate, Roy Carter, will be taking part in a Live Blog on Blog for America on Tuesday August 12, at 6:00pm est.

Roy will be giving updates from his historic campaign, which has pitted a lifetime teacher, coach and farmer and a man who built his own house four different times, against a millionare who lives in a gated resort community and has all the CEOs of Big Oil in her phone's "Fav Five."

Questions and comments are welcome from anyone who drops by, and Roy will be discussing his landmark statements on mountain-top removal, gas prices, energy, environmental protection, education, and fiscal responsibility, and ending the war and preventing any others.

He will talk about how this campaign has affected him and shaped him as a person already, how it's tunred him into an activist, the excitement of being endorsed by DFA and getting Jim Dean to personally come down to a rally, and what he'll have to do to to see it through to victory.

All Democracy for America members, and all members of the Netroots Nation are invited to drop in and ask whaterver is on their mind.

What's truly amazing about Roy, is that by running as a progressive Yellow Dog Democrat, in rural NC, he is now poised to win and is in a statistical dead heat in the polls.

His former students and players swear by him and many have volunteered to canvass, phone bank and work the polls for him.

Wish you could see his 250+ pound former offensive linemen going door to door for their coach.

So, let's put a high school science teacher and farmer in Congress, one who will not back down, because he never has.

And let's start by joining him here, on Tuesday the 12th for a little Live Blog fun.
