    Frank Palombo is a candidate in the Republican Primary (May 8, 2012), running against Walter B. Jones, Jr. He spoke before about fifty Beaufort County Republicans last night and received a rousing reception. The cord he struck was: "I'm a conservative and I'm committed to building conservative solutions to improve our economy and increase job opportunities in eastern North Carolina."

    During a brief interview after the meeting he explained why he's running, saying: "

    "We need to send leaders to Congress to fix the problems created by career politicians. I want to put my leadership and management experience to work in Congress getting the federal government out of the way of businesses and job growth and improving life in eastern North Carolina. Walter Jones' liberal voting record doesn't reflect the 3rd District's values. People know Walter is a career politician, and many are now learning of his true voting record. Walter votes with progressive Democrats often enough to have earned a meager 45% conservative rating from Heritage Action. Only 9 Republicans in the entire Congress have a more liberal record and he is by far the most liberal Republican member of the North Carolina delegation. Walter may once have been conservative, but is no longer. We need to 'clean house."

    The video clips below allow you to see and hear Mr. Palombo. In the first clip he gives some background on himself and his 34 years of experience in law enforcement, including his tenure as Chief of Police in New Bern at a time when the recession hit and his experience reducing budgets and maintaining services. He then reviews some of the critical recent votes in Congress and how Rep. Jones voted on those issues. He starts with the problem of deficit spending, supporting "Cut, cap and balance" which Rep. Jones voted against.

    In the second clip he continues the review of Rep. Jones' voting record and then opens the floor for Q&A.

    The third clip is a continuation of the Q&A and the wrap-up.
