I am surprised why any patriotic American regardless of their party affiliation would vote for Hillary Clinton when she has been so negligent with classified information as Secretary of State.

Why would any person want her as president of the United States?

The NBA’s decision to move the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte has done nothing to make Gov. Pat McCrory or Republican legislative leaders rethink their steadfast support of House Bill 2.
