WILMINTON, NC (WWAY) — There was a peaceful protest in Wilmington Thursday night in an effort to remember those killed after altercations with police. A group of people stood out at tonight’s event.

Though the protest was not political, some supporters from Betsy Jordan’s campaign showed up wearing “Jordan for NC House” tank tops. The staffers left halfway through the rally, and Jordan was not at the event herself.

Some at the protest felt this was in poor taste, so WWAY reached out to the Jordan campaign. They said though they did support the rally’s cause, they didn’t understand the event and expected it to be more political in nature. They went on to apologize.

Jordan is a Democratic candidate for the North Carolina House of Representatives challenging incumbent Rep. Rick Catlin for his 20th District seat representing part of New Hanover County.

    Betsy Jordan, not even in office yet and already making dumb decisions.

    If her decision making capabilities are already this poor, why should voters place her in a position where her inabilities will have even greater consequences for the rest of us?

    Time to thin the herd.

    after the last six years does anything a democrat does surprise anyone? Why would anyone vote for more of the same?

  • 8844 says:

    I never said it was a Democrat thing, it’s a politician thing. Please, don’t even attempt to infer that that’s what I was implying.

    Anyone who blindly votes a straight ticket these days is a fool, and a lazy one at that. Voting a straight ticket just lets other people do your thinking for you and probably also means that you’ve just been too lazy to research each and every candidate yourself.

    That’s how we wind up with people like Berger.

  • Walter Bowden says:

    I heard you can’t vote a straight ticket in NC anymore.

  • 1492 says:

    It just takes you a little longer because you have to pull all the little levers (or whatever it’s done where you vote) yourself.


  • beach guy says:

    Would you expect any less? This is strait out of the play book as described by Rahm Emanuel.

    And then when they get called out they use ignorance as an excuse.
    If your staff is really that stupid as to campaign at a rally protesting the death of four people . I doubt that you would have the wherewithal to be an effective legislator

    How in poor taste must this have been for the race-baiters to have noticed.

  • Erlkoenig says:

    Boasted on Jordon’s website “Planned Parenthood Endorses Betsy Jordan”. So the wing of the Democrat party responsible for keeping the Black population in check endorses her. Her supporters should have been embarrassed to go.
