There is not time to waste with a primary peopled by opportunists seeking exposure. Erskine Bowles is our best
hope for keeping North Carolina in the Democratic Party column.

Kevin Wood

Brad Miller also seems like a good candidate. I'm not sure why you wouldn't want a primary, since the Amendment 1 issue will be decided during the primary. I would love to have a large democratic turnout for that primary, not to mention I always have time for democratic processes like primaries.

Edward (Chip) Hill

Erskine Bowles would make the PERFECT candidate for NC Governor! He has credibility as an honest leader that can successfully negotiate bipartisan solutions to tough political problems. His record in the Clinton administration, on the Simpson-Bowles committee and as UNC System President show he is well qualified to lead us through the two toughest problems we face: balancing a tight state budget and rejuvenating a compromised education system. Now if we can just convince him to run.

Michael Carmichael

Ann Wood is dead right. Compared to the other candidates who all have their admirable qualities, Bowles is in a league of his own. North Carolina needs Erskine Bowles to lead a strong fightback against Republican extremism that led to the radical majorities in the General Assembly. With Bowles leading at the top of the state ticket, NC will turn blue for Obama as well.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
