North carolina is expected to be a battleground state in the upcoming election.

Volunteer for the Tom Tillis’ campaign, Carlton Huffman says it’s important for republicans to stay unified and active.

“North Carolina is going to be the state that determines whether republicans take control of the U.S. Senate,” Huffman said “that’s going to be vital to the direction of this country for the next two years.”

The vice chair for the North Carolina republican party Carolyn Justice agrees saying, “A majority of Republicans in the house in Washington and a majority of republicans in the senate then can make some headway into what we would like to see and that’s the elimination of Obamacare.”

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

DURHAM, NC (WTVD) — Garner Police have charged Rodney Bryant, the father of a missing 10-month-old, with first-degree kidnapping.

He is also charged with assault on a female and communicating threats.

Investigators say the charges stem from an incident at IHOP in Garner Saturday morning.
Police said Bryant, 27, took his girlfriend Elssy Olivares to work at IHOP. He forcefully held her in the car when she tried to get out, according to police, and eventually forced her out on Interstate 40 in Durham.

Durham police have issued an Amber Alert for Bryant’s daughter, 10-month-old Tamiyah Elssy Bryant.

Police say she was taken by her father around 8:15 a.m. Saturday.

Bryant was last seen wearing an orange coat and camouflage pants and driving along Interstate 40 West in Durham. He was driving a white 2002 Suzuki XL7 with Washington State tag ACK-7454.

Bryant is described as a light-skinned black man, 6’0 and 220 pounds with short hair. He has tattoos on his neck of praying hands and “M.O.B,” and “Mactown” is tattooed on the back of his hands.

Police say he has made threats to kill himself and the child.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
