Friday, May 27th is the Democratic Primary election. Every Democratic voter in Duplin County should vote. Each of you want a voice in your government and the best way you can have a voice is to go to the polls and cast your vote for the- man you think best qualified to hold office. I want to be your Senator. Naturally I want your vote but I feel that the choice of a candidate is of lesser importance than the fact that you decide to go and vote. If you feel you had rather vote for one of my opponents than for me, I urge you to go and cast that vote. If the majority of the people of Duplin feel that someone else is better qualified to represent them in the State Senate than I am then I want to see that man elected and will give him all the support that I can If the majority feel that I can qualify, then I think' that my opponents have the same feeling that I have.
