No. 82: Davidson Alums to Play a Big Role in 2016 NC Senatorial Race?

North Carolina Democrats are beginning to roll out plans for unseating Republican Richard Burr from the Senate. This is set to be an interesting election if rumors are correct that former UNC president Tom Ross and current US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx are eyeing a run for the seat. Both are Davidson grads and Tom Ross was president of the school. 

I don’t take pleasure in the thought of them fighting each other for the seat, but the political environment in the state calls for good leaders and I believe both of them could fill the need.
