Raleigh Mayor Endorses Obama

by Lady Liberty on October 24, 2012

Well, we know who to vote out next time around.

From the N&O:

Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane endorsed President Barack Obama on Tuesday, overlooking the site of where Raleigh’s new transit hub will be built.

The hub, which will receive $21 million in federal grants, is example of the president’s commitment to investing in infrastructure, education and innovation, McFarlane said.

“President Obama understands what has made North Carolina into the best place in the country to live, work start a business and raise a family,” McFarlane said, standing next to Durham Mayor Bill Bell at the Boylan Bridge Brewpub.

McFarlane was elected mayor as an independent last year, but she had strong backing from the Democratic Party.

She ran as an independent, yet clearly is a part of Democrat circles. Her emphasis was on ‘responsible growth‘ that pays attention to environmental impacts.
In the last year McFarlane has given political contributions to the tune of $7,500 entirely to Democrat party funds. One such fund was the Obama Victory Fund NC, where she dropped the bulk of her cash – a nice $4,000.  One might not be shocked then that she donated to Brad Miller in 2008.
Like Obama, McFarlane wants to move NC Forward.
