"There are three things I would like to do; first, unify the Democratic Party and the Democratic Voters. Only voters can determine the true will of the people. Second, I want our Party to win the Governors' seat and several other House and Senate seats. This will establish a veto proof majority. This will also bottle up the bad legislation coming out of Raleigh. And third, I want to be your Lieutenant Governor. I'm qualified, I know the issues, and I respect all people. My agenda will not follow the crowd. I am not a politician. I am North Carolina's Public Servant. I am one with the people and together we will take North Carolina in a New Direction."
