The Macon County Democratic Women’s Club hosted a rally for state and local party officials last Thursday night at the Otto community center. The Democratic Women’s Club, led by President Margaret Perry, held the rally for former N.C. State Senator John Snow, who lost his reelection bid against Sen. Jim Davis in 2010 by a slim margin of 161 votes. After a moment of prayer and a recital of The Pledge of Allegiance, Democrats began to discuss how they should approach the 2012 campaign season.
Democrats in attendance were hoping to witness Snow announce his candidacy to unseat Sen. Jim Davis in 2012, but were somewhat disappointed when Snow said he is still undecided. Snow’s reluctance to make a decision is due to redistricting issues that may force him and former Sen. Joe Sam Queen to decide amongst themselves about which candidate will run.
