Young voters make their voices heard in North Carolina primary

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Tilden Hagan spends his days cruising college campuses trying to pick up students.

His line: Let me tell you about my mom.

Before they can answer, Tilden Hagan, a 25-year-old Duke University alumnus with shaggy hair, launches into a speech about the ills of America's health care system, lack of financial aid for students and slow progress in making energy green. He insists his mother, Kay

Hagan, can fix what's broken with America and tells them she needs their vote in the May 6 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate.

"I hope my mom sounds like someone you want to vote for," Tilden Hagan recently told a group of 20 young Democrats at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
First off I sometime wonder why these candidates would get their families involve. Isn't there a conflict of interest here.. I mean these kids who campaign on behalf of their parents are bias, because they want their parent to win the election that they are in.
We know she will do an excellent job standing up for North Carolina in the U.S. Senate. Her dedication, work ethic and energy are unmatched.
Now its funny to me because at least two of her kids were living in CA when she decide to run for  the Senate.

Watch more YouTube videos on AOL Video

Now in the video he let it be known that he was living on the west coast.
When North Carolina Democrat Kay Hagan told her three children that she was thinking of running for U.S. Senate against Republican Elizabeth Dole, her son Tilden started wondering if he could pull off exchanging his California life for a Carolina one. 
Now Tilden went to Duke which is mostly white, with 52% of the college make up where African-American makes only 10% enrollment for 2008 and only 6% of African-Americans graduate in 2007, and his home town is 55% white; could this explain why Tilden Hagan didn't seek out African-Americans during his Visit to Rocky Mount, NC during RMT downtown fair call Downeast festival.

He was there campaigning for his mother Kay Hagan, I was there for 6 hours, in that time frame I didn't see him approach any single or group of African-America, I was told by a volunteer at the Democratic office in Rocky Mount that there was one African-American at the event with Tilden, this same volunteer also said that at time Tilden didn't feel comfortable around large groups of African-Americans.

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
