Cal Cunningham Launches His N.C. Jobs Tour From Charlotte

Cal Cunningham Kicks Off His N.C. State Tour In Charlotte

With an 18-wheeler as a prop, Democrat Cal Cunningham started a statewide Jobs tour today by criticizing Republican Richard Burr’s voting record on trade.

“Eighteen wheels on this truck behind me, one for every time he’s cast a vote that has hurt North Carolina,” Cunningham said in the parking lot of a now-renovated Charlotte textile mill.

Charlotte was the first stop of a tour that stops this afternoon in Salisbury and moves to eastern North Carolina on Friday and the Triad on Saturday.

Cal Cunningham stood in front of a big rig from a textile plant in his home Davidson County. He was joined by his wife Elizabeth and four supporters including the truck driver.

Besides the Observer, the event attracted just one television camera.

Cunningham criticized Burr’s votes for trade agreements.

“He’s pursued a right-wing agenda at the expense of those he was elected to serve,” Cunningham said.

Richard Burr's spokesman Samantha Smith said the campaign declines to comment.
