Burr must go: Do you really want a clerk representing you in the US Senate?

In the debate the other night, our US Senator was selling us on his accomplishments - he's consistent, and he provides excellent constituent services.

In other words:
  1. Our Senator consistently votes as Mitch McConnell (Republican Senate Majority Leader) directs him to vote (Burr voted the Republican Party line over 94% of the time he served in the Senate).
  2. Our Senator excels in shaking hands and shuffling papers.
A simple $30 K a year clerk can easily accomplish these tasks. Do we really want a clerk representing us in the United State Senate?

Our United States Senator has accomplished absolutely nothing of substance in his 15 years in Congress. Nothing. Not a darn thing.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
