Marti Van Horne: Democrats need to pitch agenda

The Dec. 7 column “Who turned my blue state red?” was an extremely well-thought-out piece and helped me understand what’s happening with North Carolina voters, or nonvoters I should say.

The Democrats need to take their message to town hall meetings or other venues so they can promote their agenda. I’m pretty sure the nonvoters do not read The N&O or their hometown newspaper but rely on TV news blurbs.

Thanks for publishing this timely opinion. I’d like to see more of Alec MacGillis’ work. I just saw “Spotlight” and realize if we lose investigative reporting, we will all be worse off for it.
