In 2006, public school teacher and former mill worker Larry Kissell came within 330 votes of winning his improbable race for Congress. He's once again going up again Rep Robin Hayes (R-NC), a pawn of Big Oil. Rep Hayes has taken more than $176,000 in Big Oil contributions and owns more than $23 million in Big Oil stock. While Larry Kissell doesn't have corporate friends with deep pockets like Hayes, he's got all of us. Give Larry the resources he needs to win this race and return middle class representation to NC's 8th district.
10/21/08 update: Rep Robin Hayes (R-NC) is not only hateful, but he's a despicable liar. Speaking as a warm-up act for a McCain rally in Concord, NC on 10/18/08, Hayes told the crowd, "liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God." This comment came just moments after he had said that he wanted to "make sure we don't say something stupid, make sure we don't say something we don't mean." But the amazing and despicable thing is that both Hayes and his staff DENIED making the comments until an audio recording of the offensive remarks came to light. North Carolina and our nation deserve better than this. PLEASE SUPPORT LARRY KISSELL!
