A Political Heroine

Cheers for Elaine Marshall, who just won a primary runoff in the face of huge obstacles. Her opponent was the candidate of the party establishment (according to the News & Observer) and she was dealt a tremendous personal blow with the death of her husband during the campaign (which I only learned after the results were in.)

She now has the Democratic nomination in the U.S. Senate race in my North Carolina neighborhood. I'd love to see what she does as senator. Check her out at Elaine Marshall for US Senate or "like" her on Facebook if you do that sort of thing.

I voted for her, even though I did Cal Cunningham's wedding flowers! LOL

That's a strong statement.

And I seem to recall that you've done flowers (or trees) for some other prominent political figures.
