Marvin Maddox: Not smarter than a 5th-grader

May 4, 2014 

Regarding the April 23 news story “ Brannon targets Tillis in first GOP Senate debate”: I am amazed that the Republican Senate candidates know so little about climate change. Fortunately, fifth-graders in North Carolina public schools do have a weather section in their curriculum. Perhaps some elementary school will be willing to step forward and give these candidates some remedial education.
