Mike...

is still in the pocket of Queen Nancy. When the Dems need a vote, they know Mike is there.

McIntyre

McIntyre voted however Pelosi dictated. He is not a so called blue dog democrat, he is a left wing liberal.

That's an absolute lie

He voted against healthcare reform, he voted against cap and trade, he's against card check, and he has voted against every major program Obama wanted. The liberals hate him and have even considered running someone against him in the primary.

He may be a "true

He may be a "true representative" for the people of Wilmington, but he couldn't care less about Brunswick County. He has never represented us properly and he will not get my vote.

McIntyre

trash is as trash does

Re-elect the man!

hes been doing a great job in my opinion bridging the gap between the two parties.
Pantano, more like hell no.

mike m.

i like mike in 2012 !!! he is a true "representative" i wish we had more like him in d.c.

Go Mike!

I'm proud to be a McIntyre supporter and to see that people in our area have enough sense to invest in the campaign of a level-headed and moderate representative.

Verne Strickland's name illegally used in Go Mike comment.

My name is being illegally attached to this comment, and this will be reported. I am a solid supporter of Conservative GOP candidate Ilario Pantano, and have been since his entry into the race against Mike McIntyre, for whom I have no admiration and little respect. Anyone who knows me is aware of where I stand on this. I'm flattered I am singled out in this manner, and seen as a threat to McIntyre's candidacy.
