Fight for your dreams and destiny even during the challenge of a medical illness

Goldsboro, NC is known for BBQ and this picture is a perfect representation of home and where I grew up

I grew up in Goldsboro, NC, and you had to make something out of nothing. The biggest event was the New Kids on the Block appearing at the local mall when I was in high school. Goldsboro is located in Wayne County, and Wayne County is instilled in my background. I am a fighter, and I had to fight to survive.

I have employees who are depending on me today to come through. The Wayne County fight is becoming the dominant factor over the cancer that is eating at my life. My personal finance site will help millions of people. I will make it work. I will not let cancer defeat me…

My employees should know that we are moving forward, and we will overcome this bump in the road. Takecontrolofmoney will be a household name in one year.

After Manufacturing- North Carolina is the top ranked state in manufacturing job losses

The News and Observer out of Raleigh, NC did feature a story in the focus of the Republican candidates and President Obama organization in the Tarheel State. Rick Santorum did bow out of the race, and the only candidate is Newt Gingrich in the Republican field of candidates. However, the change of fate does favor Mitt Romney in lieu of Rick Santorum being out of the race. However, the organizational genius is President Obama as the 13th campaign office was opened this week.

In North Carolina politics, the unpredictable is the normal in North Carolina politics. The state did vote for President Obama in 2008, but voted the most conservative General Assembly two years later since the mid 1800′s. North Carolina is peculiar state in its politics. Democrat or Republican should not take for granted the voting public and  sentiment in this state. Mitt Romney has the clear shot to the Republican Nomination for President, but he is far behind the Obama organizational structure in North Carolina. The election of 2012 will place the state among Ohio and Pennsylvania as pinnacle to victory. The next few months will reveal the importance of North    Carolina to Mitt Romney. A conservative General Assembly does not guarantee any candidate a pass in North Carolina politics.

CBSNews.com: Romney carries 5 states, Santorum 3


CBS News projects that Mitt Romney will win Ohio‘s key primary contest Tuesday, after a neck-and-neck race with rival Rick Santorum to eke out a victory in the pivotal battleground state.

With 96 percent reporting in Ohio, Romney has 38 percent support to Santorum’s 37 percent. Newt Gingrich is in third place with 15 percent and Ron Paul follows with 9 percent.

Mitt Romney has also won primaries in Virginia, Massachusetts and Vermont, as well as the Idaho caucuses. Rick Santorum won primaries in Tennessee and Oklahoma, and in the North Dakota caucuses. In Georgia, Gingrich clinched his first primary victory since South Carolina’s January 21 primary contest.

Ron Paul did not win any contests on Tuesday, but he did finish second in four states: Vermont, Idaho, North Dakota and Virginia.

There are also caucuses in Alaska. Results are expected later this evening.

With voters in ten states selecting their choice to be the Republican presidential nominee and 419 delegates up for grabs, Super Tuesday could be a make-or-break night for the remaining Republican presidential candidates.

CBS News estimates show Romney with a total of 299 delegates, Santorum with 99 delegates, Gingrich with 74 delegates and Paul with 24 delegates.

Updated 10:52 p.m. ET — A hard-fought battle between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in Ohio yielded no quick winner in the state, the prize contest on Super Tuesday that could reshape the battle for the Republican presidential nomination.

Both Romney and Santorum notched victories across the country in the caucuses and primaries they had been expected to win. Newt Gingrich won the primary in Georgia, the state from which he had served as a representative in Congress, but trailed in the remainder of states playing host to nominating contests on Tuesday.

But the trajectory of the Republican campaign hinged in large part on Ohio, where Romney and Santorum re-litigated their battle from just a week earlier in Michigan’s primary, where the former eked out a victory. Santorum had looked to the state to validate his status as the chief conservative opponent to Romney.

A margin of just a few thousand votes separated Santorum and Romney after most votes had been counted, although a number of major precincts had yet to report their results. NBC Newsdeclared the race in Ohio “too close to call.”
