Obama supporter Jim Rogers hosts fundraiser for Speaker Tillis

As co-chair the Charlotte Host Committee, Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers was in some ways a face of the Democratic National Convention. He also arranged Duke's $10 million line of credit and gave $10,000 to Barack Obama's campaign.

Now he's helping one of North Carolina's top Republicans. Rogers is hosting a fundraiser at his Eastover home for House Speaker Thom Tillis of Cornelius. Tillis expects to use the money to help elect other Republicans to the state House, where he's trying to build a "super-majority."

I think Mr. Rodgers realizes that the Republicans

are reaching across the isle to find common ground with the Democrats so that the state can move forward.  It is wonderful to see the Republicancs working so hard for all North Carolinians and it is to Mr. Rodgers credit that he sees this spirit of unity.
