Under the Dome

Is a Bob Etheridge comeback in the works?

Former Rep. Bob Etheridge is in Washington today as part of a recruiting class that the Democrats are wooing to run for Congress next year,  according to the National Republican Congressional Committee.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is holding a day of work shops for 107 prospective candidates from 36 states, the National Journal, a non partisan publication reports. The National Journal did not say that Etheridge was among the recruits, but the Republicans did.

Etheridge was unseated last year by Republican Renee Ellmers. Since then, the legislature has drawn new lines to make the 2nd district more Republican.

Since losing his seat, Etheridge has headed the state's stimulus office and the office in charge of recovery for Hurricane Irene.

Age is not an issue - competence is

Hey guys, Bob's only 70 years old this year. He's a former athlete, and in great shape for a run.  There's not a grey hair on his head!  He could be at home, drawing his Social Security, State and Federal retirement, while doing the little temp jobs for the Guv,  but he's wanting to return to the service of the people.  Run Bob, run!!

Don't forget what the alternative for the 2nd District is....a Representative whose actions and words are not the same.   (Several 4-color mailings to ALL in the district promoting her candidacy.......under the guise of "informing the people" AT OUR EXPENSE, while she talks about cutting Federal spending.)

A Hunt Comeback too ???

Why stop with Bob?  Maybe the Demos can dredge up Guv4Life Jim Hunt and recycle that ol coot too.
