Cal Cunningham: Encourage investment in minority businesses

Cal recognizes that too many communities across North Carolina have seen generations of economic inequality due to institutionalized racial discrimination and the resulting disparities in inter-generational wealth. He believes we need innovative policies that break down historical barriers and encourage capital investment in communities of color and minority-owned businesses to reverse the legacy of economic injustice.

Thom Tillis: AdWatch: began working at 15; postponed college until later

Thom Tillis will begin running the second TV advertisement of his US Senate campaign, once again highlighting his business background. Unlike his first ad, Tillis does not name Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan in the spot. Rather, he references the "train wreck in Washington."

The 30-second spot is mainly biographical.

His commercial doesn't mention that he is in his second term as state House speaker, one of the two most influential legislative positions in the state. Rather, he mentions working as a short-order cook at 15 and the fact he put off college until later in life, eventually rising to become a partner at IBM.

Democrats pounced on the omission of his legislative service in their response to the ad Thursday. "Tillis talks about opportunity, but his record in the General Assembly, on which he has promised he will run, and his policy positions tell a much different story," said a spokeswoman for Hagan.

Bev Perdue: Tax relief for corporations from highest rate in southeast

Tonight I propose giving North Carolina one more tool to attract new jobs and to grow jobs here in existing small businesses: Tax relief for corporations and for small businesses. Right now, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the southeast. That means our businesses are paying more taxes when they could be creating jobs. That's a strike against us from Day One as we work to convince businesses that North Carolina is the best value. Businesses look at more than the bottom line, but the botto line is the big difference maker in a company's relocation decision. So in this budget--we will continue to fund our business incentives for job growth and job recruitment. And I am asking the General Assembly to lower our corporate tax rate to 4.9%--the lowest in the southeast and one of the lowest in the nation. This change will push North Carolina to the forefront in growing jobs for our people. And that, my friends, must be the No. 1 priority for every one of us in this chamber tonight.
