I don't disagree with your thought. But will he do it?
He's always had the support of the Lumbee Tribal Council & he always brings big baskets of wampum home to them.
Time will tell; but I question whether he will choose to run in the 7th or switch to the newly carved district which now includes his personal residence.
I'm not certain he can reinvent & market himself in the newly drawn 7th; there's not that much time. And remember Onslow County is home to Camp LeJuene; and Mr. Pantano, if he runs, is a Marine -- you know the saying -- Once A Marine; always a Marine.
The wiser choice for him may be to run in the new district.
