McIntyre focuses on veterans, staying positive during Wilmington visit

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Rep. Mike McIntyre is rallying support from veterans in the region.

McIntyre says being elected to another term in the Congress would mean continued growth for veteran services in the district and the county.

McIntyre says he plans to continue to focus his efforts on visiting voters instead of focusing on negative ads.

“I never ever take one person, one citizen or one vote for granted,” McIntyre said. “That’s why we’re working hard every day. We’re doing grassroots efforts with our veterans, our educators, our business owners, our mayors. They know our hearts are here at home and that we don’t take people for granted.”

The race for the 7th District is one of the most expensive Congressional campaigns in the country. McIntyre says he hopes his efforts and track record speak louder than the commercials.

Obama wins by a landslide in kids’ online election

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a landslide for President Barack Obama – at least among people too young to vote.

Nickelodeon’s Linda Ellerbee said Monday that the president captured 65 percent of the vote to beat Republican Mitt Romney in the network’s “Kids Pick the President” vote. More than 520,000 people cast online ballots through the children’s network’s website over one week earlier this month.

Since it began in 1988, the kids have presaged the adults’ vote all but once, when more youngsters voted for John Kerry over George W. Bush in 2004.

Obama answered questions submitted by Nickelodeon viewers for a special earlier this month. Romney didn’t participate.
