Harvey Gantt delivers a campaign speech in Washington, North Carolina. He encourages the crowd to get excited about the election and tell others why they're voting for Gantt and other Democrats. Gantt says that people want someone who is going to care about them. Gantt says that he cares about senior citizens and wants to protect Social Security and Medicare, while his opponent, Jesse Helms, voted to cut Medicare in the Senate. Gantt discusses education, including investing in education, the key to the American Dream, saying that it is cheaper to keep kids in school than have them drop out. He says that Helms votes against Head Start and computers in classrooms, and doesn't think government has any place in education. Concludes with a question and answer session, with topics including a potential debate between Gantt and Helms, abortion, Helms's accusations that Gantt exploited his minority status and pocketed money, and the Middle East.
