Party Towns

Record #:
The nation's two largest political parties share their names with two North Carolina communities, Democrat in Buncombe County and Republican in Bertie County. While one expects Democrat to be full of Democrats, it doesn't work that way in Republican, which is also full of Democrats. Of the 859 voters there, only 54 are registered Republicans. Tomlin recounts interesting anecdotes about the towns.
