Abstract:
North Carolina political commentator and author Paul Luebke discusses why U.S. Senator Jesse Helms has remained popular and what it will take to beat him in the upcoming election. Luebke believes the idea of N.C. as a progressive state is a myth as seen by the multiple re-elections of Helm. The state is progressive industrially, but not socially. Helms is a traditionalist whose policies do not serve the needs of most of the citizens. If Democrats can find a forceful candidate to challenge Helms on health care, the environment, and education, they have a chance of unseating Helms.

Abstract:
As part of the “Landlord Hall of Shame” series published in the last two issues of the magazine, Raleigh’s most famous landlords are profiled. US Senator Jesse Helms and wife Dorothy own 22 rental properties in Raleigh. 19 are rented in white neighborhoods and are in good condition. 3 are in poor, black neighborhoods and all three have been cited for public nuisances and housing-code violations. Helms has said that private enterprise should drive the housing market, not the government and has voted against bills to fund or create public housing projects. A double-standard seems to be employed by Senator Helms.

Abstract:
As the race between Harvey Gantt and Jesse Helms for US Senate nears the voting date, polls show crime is an issue of concern with North Carolina voters. Helms claims he is tough on crime, but his record outside of high profile crime bills suggest he is inconsistent. Additionally, a special assistant to Helms recently spoke out in support of a leading Washington, DC cocaine trafficker who is linked to over 30 murders.

In two months, NC citizens will vote between Harvey Gantt and Jesse Helms for US Senate. 72 people from the areas which had the highest number of undecided voters were polled. Most of these voters want a senator who is strong on environmental and educational issues. Gantt is that candidate, but based on responses, his message is not reaching those voters.
