Small-town (a/k/a Mill town) North Carolina as depicted in Primary Pen & Ink

See the entire strip about "Whiteville" by Campbell Robertson here. In it, the cartoonist depicts small-town N.C. concerns among a population of mostly Democratic Party supporters. Mount Airy, another mill town with an Obama office, is nearby. In the strip, Whiteville is preparing for a campaign stop by former President Bill Clinton, and the strip notes that he has visited "map dots as small as Deep Run (pop. 200)." In nearby Mount Airy, an Obama supporter is out talking jobs -- and Wal-Mart.
