African Americans for Dalton

Leave a comment

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Walter Dalton’s new ad is stirring up racial issues. Featured on the website of “African Americans for Walter Dalton,” the video attacks Republican candidate Pat McCrory’s understanding of North Carolina’s black population (22% according to the U.S. Census Bureau).  The ad is a blatant attempt to appeal to a demographic that votes traditionally more liberally–but Dalton has a lot of ground to make up to reach the level of support McCrory currently has.
