Campbell County Democrats, Remember to Vote on Tuesday May 20, 2014
The citizens of Campbell County see thousands of signs along the streets and highways of Campbell County for the 10 (including U.S. Senate) Republican Primary Elections in the county. Citizens especially the 26,000 Campbell County Democrats need to remember there are 5 (including U.S Senate) Democratic Primary Elections in Campbell County.
As the Democratic Primary has not received as much media attention as it has not been as contentious as the Republican Primary this year.
