Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Jamie and Nation Hahn. Both are highly respected democratic party leaders and strategists active in Wake County and State politics. Regardless of our differing political views, it is our civic involvement and love of our community that binds us together. Please keep the Hahn’s in your thoughts in the wake of this senseless tragedy.

Update: Sadly, it was reported that Jamie Hahn passed away this morning.
