Anti-Toll Effort Gets Some National Attention

While the race between Thom Tillis and Kay Hagan has been getting plenty of national attention (it may eventually be the most expensive Senate race in history) there has not been much attention from national media on a subject that is raging here locally - tolls on I77.

That changed with this story in the Washington Times.

We first reported on this issue possibility impacting this national election over a year ago.

The anti-toll group WidenI77 has been ramping up their efforts lately sending out a fundraising letter for a possible legal challenge as well as becoming a more visible presence around the area with signs and protests.

More on this story here later this week.

As election day nears it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
