There’s only one hope for Walton Dalton, the Democratic nominee for governor – demand the NC Utilities Commission rescind the Duke-Progress Energy merger.
Pat McCrory (R) is leading Dalton in both the polls and in the bank account. Dalton’s only hope is to throw a monkey wrench into the campaign; and Duke Energy may have the biggest wrench in the state.
As anger grows in Raleigh and elsewhere across the state where Progress Energy once loomed large, the former Charlotte mayor and political frontman for Duke Energy is bound to pay the price.
A former Progress director said that Duke Energy’s actions were ”the most blatant example of corporate deceit that I have witnessed during a long career on Wall Street.”
Dalton simply needs to connect the dots for voters in order turn the statewide electorate against Duke and the former Charlotte mayor.
