We're grateful to the Long Leaf Pine Slate for supplying a clutch of new candidate videos for Democrats running in flippable NC General Assembly districts. We've also been writing about these folks for months. The Long Leaf Pine Slate has been successfully raising money for these races all year. Some of the results can be seen in the professional introductory videos -- quick hits of personality and vital biography highlighted by snazzy graphics, so that although the candidate talks directly to the camera, they never lapse into static "talking-head" mode. I'll be highlighting these videos one at a time over coming days/weeks.
Frances Vinell Jackson in House District 45 (Cumberland Co.). John Szoka is the incumbent Republican. Race is rated "Toss-Up." FlipNC.org says it now leans "slightly Democratic." Trump took only 49.93% of the vote there.
