NC GOP Convention

Posted by Carmen Ledford on Saturday Jun 4, 2011 Under Politics

It is 2:30 am and I am back in my room from a fun evening at the NC GOP convention in Wilmington, NC. One of the highlights of the evening was the Salute to the Troops Banquet. The featured speaker was Congressman Allen West. This freshman congressman gave an inspiring passionate speech. I hope more Americans will be fortunate enough to hear him speak.

After dinner I made the rounds of  the hospitality suites. I went to both candidates for Lt Governor- Dan Forest – www.danforest.com and Tony Gurley www.tonygurley.com. I have an initial opinion but I would like to gather some more info. I also went to the suites of  Robin Hayes, Wayne King, Senate Caucus and Young Professional Republicans. By the way, when did they become the Young Professional Republican? They were just Young Republicans when I was involved with them. I have aged out now. How depressing!

After the suites closed down, I went downtown with some friends. The best part was watching Jeff Mixon and my roomy sing karaoke. It was a perfect ending to a fun evening. I am looking forward to what is in store for tomorrow.
