Clinton to campaign in North Carolina Thursday

Posted March 5, 2016

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in North Carolina Thursday to campaign ahead of the March 15 primary and encourage early voting, her campaign announced Saturday.

Details about Clinton’s visit – including where she will campaign in the Tar Heel State – have not been released.

Clinton and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders will be trying to lock up delegates in three states Saturday – voters head to the polls for primaries in Kansas, Louisiana and Nebraska. The pair will also participate Saturday night in a debate in Flint, Michigan.

Early voting for the March 15 primary started Thursday across North Carolina, and after years of debate and lawsuits, showing photo identification at the polls is now a fact of life for North Carolina voters.

Every voter is being asked for a photo ID, even if they’ve voted at the same precinct for years and the poll workers know them.

Acceptable IDs:

  • North Carolina driver's license or learner's permit, either current or expired within four years
  • Veteran's ID card or U.S. military ID
  • Unexpired U.S. passport
  • Tribal ID card
  • State-issued ID
  • Out-of-state driver's license (only for someone who registered within 90 days of the election)

If a voter forgets to bring an ID, he or she can cast a provisional ballot. For the vote to count, however, the person will need to show his or her ID at the county elections office afterward.

    No way, No how could I ever vote for this lying woman. She lies so much about everything then expects us all to forget. Hillary forgets her words are forever available on the internet, YouTube, blogs, MSM articles, reports from the government - everywhere!! Her stint as SOS, her stint as 1st lady of Arkansas, 1st lady of the US, the cash donations to the Clinton Foundation from known anti-human rights, anti-equal rights governments, her ties to WallStreet, big banks, fracking companies, her husband's sleaze and now even Chelsea is married to Wallstreet hedgefund. BTW, Bill, Hillary are both friends of Donald Trump and Chelsea is best friends with Trump's daughter Ivanka. It's all kabuki theater for the masses! Enough of this!!

    I wonder if she'll bring her phony drawl with her!

    This morning on Face The Nation she said she has been the most transparent candidate. No push back whatsoever forum that phony journalist. The press will continue to give her kids glove handling.

    The republicans and independents of NC need to get the polls and vote for John Kasich.

    The Clinton's brought controversy and scandal to the WH in 1992 and continued right and beyond their term in office. He was disbarred, and now she is under FBI investigation. Yet the Democrat lemmings support her.

    I am hoping the people of NC will vote for John Kasich and bring a man with a proven track record, integrity and class to the White House.

    Is she going to have translators available? Translators to decipher all the Bull that comes out of her mouth into what she really means.

    I think it's hilarious how the dems call Trump a narcissist when this woman is one of the biggest of all. In addition, as this story noted, she is also huge on nepotism. Both of these things were very much alluded to in her very own emails.

    Hillary claims to be the most qualified person running for POTUS. Let's review her body of work.

    As first lady she assumed authority over Health Care Reform. A process that cost tax payers 13 million.
    She threatened anyone who opposed it she would "demonize" them. It was opposed and never made it to a vote in congress which was controlled by her party.

    Hillary assumed authority over selecting a female Attorney General. Her first 2 recommendations Baird and Wood were forced to withdraw. and then she chose Janet Reno. Reno is described by Bill Clinton as "my worst mistake".

    Hillary recommended Lani Guanier for the head of Civil Rights Commission.When Gaunier's radical views becam known, her name had to be withdrawn.

    Hillary recommended her former law partnersWeb Hubbell, Vince Foster, and William Kennedy for positions in the Justice Department, White House staff, and and the Treasury. Hubbell was imprisoned, Foster commited suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
