A BlueNC blogger is defending Sen. Walter Dalton's spending bills.
Noting the recent attack by the N.C. Republican Party on Dalton's $277 million in requested appropriations, BlueNC blogger Blue South writes that only the $14 million for the Cleveland Correctional Center is directed at his own district:
Now Linda Daves has attacked Dalton for Pork spending, but if you look of the 277 million, only 14 million would directly benifit Dalton's district, while many would benefit his along with every other rural district in the state. And there is of course no gurantee that bill will get passed or folded into the budget.
Blue South also writes that the bills would benefit "education, jobs and biofuels."
