Sharon Day Holds North Carolina Events to Promote the Romney/Ryan Plan to Address National Debt and Help the Middle Class

Perhaps Dalton would be better off learning from successful records like Governor Walker’s rather than the tax hikes and fiscal recklessness of his own record and that of Governor Perdue.” Scott Walker Walter Dalton Turned a $3.6 billion deficit into a surplus – while […]
