RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - State Democrats have revved up their grassroots activism efforts with creation of a "Blue Crew" effort to "spread our message."

Following is the text of an Email pitch distributed under the signature of new party Executive Director Kimberly Reynolds.

We are excited to launch the Blue Crew that supports the NCDP and helps spread our message.

During this summer, we will create a grassroots movement never seen before in our state.  It’s true that Republicans have plenty of donors with deep pockets. But we have you—and supporters like you all over North Carolina—and that makes all the difference. Don’t wait, chip in as little as $5 a month today.

In 2016 we have key races on our ballot and it will take a lot of muscle from grassroots supporters like you.  We need help reaching as many voters as we can so we can stop the GOP.

By becoming a Blue Crew member, you have taken the first step to become politically active for the 2016 election.  Some of the different ways that our Blue Crew members contribute is by:

Donating as little as $5 a month
Spreading the word of our program
Networking with their Neighbors
Getting out the Vote
Spreading the NCDP Message
 Hosting a Coffee


So far, 163 supporters have stepped up to help us defeat the GOP in 2016.  Will you join them today?

Thank you for joining us.

Kimberly Reynolds,
Executive Director

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - It was supposed to be a private meeting organized by former Democratic Gov. Jim Hunt, but the Raleigh News & Observer made public this week's event geared around Hunt's desire for an "alternative vision" for North Carolina.

The newspaper reports that Hunt's Wednesday gathering of an unknown group of people was designed to change the direction of the state, which the former governor described as going backward.

No word on whether Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, rumored to be running for governor, was invited or attended.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A national media outlet is reporting that former North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan will not challenge Sen. Richard Burr in the 2016 election for Senate.

Fox News says two unnamed sources confirmed that Hagan is a no-go following months of speculation that she was considering a run to try and unseat the veteran Republican. Hagan is a Democrat who was ousted from her Senate seat last year by Republican Thom Tillis.

Burr is the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman.

Democrats now face a big question mark about who might have the gravitas and name recognition to give Burr a solid challenge.
