Wake County Democratic Party Chairman Mack Paul is accusing the GOP of trying to "deceive" voters by saying President Barack Obama's campaign is involved in the school board races.
In a press release today, Paul says statements made this week by Wake County Republican Party Chairwoman Susan Bryant about the involvement of Obama and other "national forces" in school board elections is false. He calls it "an attempt to distract voters from the real issues and the record of the Ron Margiotta-led Majority."
"Clearly, Wake County Republican Chair Susan Bryant is dead-set on running a campaign that has nothing to do with the actual issues facing our schools," Paul said in the release. "The Wake Republicans, and their special interest allies, continue to mislead the voters of Wake County by sending them mailers filled with wild claims because they understand how unpopular their Tea Party agenda has become."
