    Dewey, try again. You are misspelling Jeffrey. Took me about 30 sec. to find him and he is Dem. That doesn't really matter, everyone's point is Scott is doing just what he likes to accuse others of doing, profiling, making assumptions about people without any knowledge of them, and in general just being a hypocrite. By the way, I an not a Trump supporter.

    Hmm. There are 5 records with the name Jeffery McDaniel registered to vote in the entire state. There are none in Randolph County. Of those 5, 4 are unaffiliated and 1 is a registered Republican.

    Interesting comments guys, but this guy shows up as a registered democrat. Kind of fits the mold for the democrat party in NC if you know your history.
