The 2000 GOP nominee for North Carolina governor and the 1990 & ’96 Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate are teaming up for an assault on May’s vote on Amendment One:
We have an important message to share with you from Harvey Gantt and Richard Vinroot. Both used to be Mayor of Charlotte. Harvey Gantt is a Democrat, Richard Vinroot is a Republican. Both have had a major impact on our state. They don’t always agree on everything but they do agree on one major issue:
Richard Vinroot opposes Amendment One because it is “unnecessary and may have unintended consequences.”
Harvey Gantt opposes Amendment One because, “those consequences may harm women, children and families throughout North Carolina. And, even worse, the amendment will write discrimination into our constitution.”
This powerful new web ad showcases the emerging consensus against the amendment. Regardless of party affiliation, faith, neighborhood or background people across the state are calling on others to vote against the amendment on May 8. It is an important message for voters to hear.
Will you donate $25, $50, $100, $250, $1,000 or more so that we can air messages like this one across North Carolina? We cut our first television ads last week and we are ready to hit the airwaves with information about the harms of Amendment One.
As Richard Vinroot declared in the video, “If we defeat Amendment One on May 8, it will not cause any harm at all.”
Now that is something that we can all agree on!

Isn’t that special? <sarcasm> It helps SO MUCH to have GOP leaders blurring the differences between themselves and lefty Democrats. </sarcasm>
A leading Charlotte conservative tossed in his two cents on this unholy alliance:
If any of you still wonder about the decline of the Mecklenburg-Charlotte Republican party, which has occurred over the past 20 years, this alliance epitomizes the problem !!! The result: Democrats control the mayor’s office and city council 9 to 2! The county commission is 5 to 4 Democrats, but that will be worse after the November election! Under the leadership of Vinroot and McCrory and Democrats, our taxes are the highest in the state…..and you can count on a city tax increase this year. These so-called Republicans paved the way!
