Di­verse can­di­dates

The News & Observer - - Opinion -

Your ar­ti­cle about the lack of di­ver­sity in this year’s midterm elec­tion (“More peo­ple run­ning for leg­is­la­ture, but only small gains in di­ver­sity,” Nov. 5) is alarm­ing. You state that the Demo­cratic Party has a web­site that al­lows vot­ers to see the race, gen­der and age of their can­di­dates, and the Repub­li­can Party does not have such a web­site. This must mean that when you have no mes­sage, no plan and no qual­i­fied ex­pe­ri­enced peo­ple run­ning for of­fice, play the race, gen­der and age card. This goes hand in hand with the Demo­cratic Party’s new rule of law: guilty un­til proven in­no­cent. – Steven Met­zler Raleigh
