My comment pertains to the related sidebar with this story: Though I certainly understand why The Indy endorsed Mike Causey versus Richard Morgan for the GOP insurance commissioner nomination (based on Morgan's history as in the legislature), I hope The Indy doesn't stray from its 2008 endorsement of Democrat Wayne Goodwin when it comes time for endorsements in the fall 2012 contest. (Goodwin has saved us over a billion dollars, and is a stalwart defender of his consumer protection role as Insurance Commissioner.) Here are some facts and not ad hominem attacks about Mike Causey: (a) According to the Secretary of State's office, Mike Causey has been a long-time paid lobbyist for insurance issues before the General Assembly and (b) by his own admission on his campaign website, Mike Causey worked as an insurance company executive for 30 years. (c) He's not just the Guilford County businessman he presents to some by citing his ownership of a farmers market. Mike Causey is (d) running a fourth time in 20 years to be state insurance commissioner. We can't afford to have an insurance commissioner who is tied to the insurance industry. Be very, very careful. Keep the fox from guarding the henhouse!
