Catawba College holds Campaign 2008 Day

Candidates visit Catawba
Local, state and national campaigns will be represented on Catawba College’s campus during Campaign 2008 Day, slated from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Cannon Student Center. Representatives from the Rowan County Board of Elections will be on hand to register students to vote.
Political representatives, local party operatives and those seeking volunteers will join campus officials in encouraging students to register to vote and learn more about opportunities to be involved in the political process and campaigns.
According to Catawba Dean of Students W. Dan Sullivan, holding one large Campaign Day event “allows all political perspectives and groups to have a fair shot at reaching students and will also create enthusiasm among students about the upcoming elections.”
To date, the following parties and candidates have indicated that they will participate in Campaign 2008 Day:
– Representatives from Rowan County Democrats
– Representatives from Rowan County Republicans
– Dr. Ada M. Fisher, N.C. House District 77 Republican candidate
– Rep. Lorene Coates, N.C. House District 77 Democratic incumbent
– Patrick McCrory, N.C. gubernatorial Republican candidate
– Raymond Coltrain, Rowan County commissioner candidate
– Sen. Andrew Brock, N.C. Senate District 34 Republican incumbent
– Sen. Elizabeth Dole, U.S. Senate Republican incumbent
– Kay Hagan, U.S. Senate Democratic candidate
– Ty Cobb Jr., U.S. House District 12 Republican candidate
– Bill Burnette, N.C. Senate District 34 Democratic candidate
Catawba College’s Campaign 2008 Day will be followed Thursday, Oct. 16, with a mock presidential election to be held on campus.
During that event, Catawba College students, in the pivotal 18- to 25-year-old category, will cast “mock ballots” for presidential candidates.
