Danny Hefner http://whqr.org en Candidate Profile: Bill Rabon (R), NC Senate, District 8 http://whqr.org/post/candidate-profile-bill-rabon-r-nc-senate-district-8 <p>Senator Bill Rabon has represented North Carolina Senate District Eight since 2010--and he’s hoping to carry forth through another term. Rabon, a native of Columbus County and a current Southport veterinarian, recently told WHQR that he doesn’t want to stay in the Senate so long he wears out his welcome. However, the incumbent Republican says he’s proud of what he’s accomplished in terms of transportation and tax reform, and would like to see these matters—as well as initiatives related to job creation and education—through to completion.</p> Mon, 05 May 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 54257 at http://whqr.org Candidate Profile: Bill Rabon (R), NC Senate, District 8 Candidate Profile: Danny Hefner (D), NC Senate, District 8 http://whqr.org/post/candidate-profile-danny-hefner-d-nc-senate-district-8 <p>Danny Hefner, the Ocean Isle Beach Democrat who lost 2012’s Senate District Eight race to incumbent Bill Rabon, has thrown his hat into the same ring again.
