His name is not Eddie Knox, Rufus Edmisten or Jim|

I he's just as serious about being North Carolina's next
governor as the other contenders.
"I'm as serious as any of those other eight or nine
that's running," Hannon, a Democrat, said at a meeting <
of the Winston Young Democrats Club recently. "Why
i, would a man run all over the state if he wasn't serious.
Why would a man spend all that money if he wasn't
;t serious. This is not for fun."
Hannon, 65, a former teacher, agricultural extension
agent and college professor, said he is running on a plat(form
that addresses the four 'E's' - the environment,
economy, education and energy. "The issues are what is
important in this campaign," Hannon said.
I Of the four, education is the most important issue, he
said. "We need high-quality teachers, and in order to get
them we need to pay a high salary. While I am opposed to

Hannon has often been referred to as a "novice and
newcomer" to North Carolina politics, but dismisses the
title as incorrect. Although he has not held a political office,
he is not new to campaigning. He lost the race for
lieutenant governor to Gov. James Hunt in 1972, and
campaigned for the U.S. Senate in 1974, a seat eventually
won by Robert Morgan.
i4I didn't do too well in the race for the U.S. Senate,"
Hannon said, "because I was working in Mississippi and
came back to the state 30 days before the election. But I
got votes in all of the 100 counties."
When asked to assess his chances of winning next
year's gubernatorial race, Hannon said his chances are
Hannon is careful to avoid making his campaign black
vs. white. "1 don't want to bring out the race issue,"
Hannon said. "I don't want to divide the citizens. I want
votes from everybody. I want integrated votes. I don't
want all black votes. 1 want black, white, red, blue,
yello\*iand green votes." y
