According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service gray bats and flying squirrels are two endangered species that live in Buncombe County.
According to Politics NC and the Asheville Citizen-Times so is Brian Turner.
Politics NC lists Brian as the most vulnerable Democrat in the House and is quoted as saying “Turner should find himself in a toss-up contest…will have to gird himself for a tough reelection campaign.” The Citizen-Times jumped in to add that Brian is in the “hot seat” with “with the greatest chance of changing hands” in 2016.
But this doesn’t tell the full story. Brian is being criticized because he isn’t a Raleigh insider who is in the pocket of the special interests. Instead he is an independent leader whose first priority is doing what is best for the hardworking, everyday North Carolinians he represents in District 116.
In truth, we could use more Brian Turners in Raleigh but we have to be sure to keep the one we have. That’s why it’s critically important you contribute $25, $50 or even $100 today to ensure Brian has the resources to win in 2016.
I know Brian can count on you,
Rep. Ray Rapp
P.S. Did you know Raleigh is calling Brian Turner one of the most endangered incumbents in next year’s elections? Let’s show them how much we support Brian: contribute $116 right away to help Brian build the campaign it will take to win.
