WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Most of your lawmakers are back home after meeting this week to cancel two vetoes by Governor Pat McCrory.
Ken Waddell, of Chadbourn, and about 40 other freshmen, now have a full session of experience.
The democrat represents parts of Columbus, Bladen and Robeson counties.
At a time when some consider "compromise" a dirty word, records show Waddell was not afraid to cross the aisle and vote with the republican majority.
"There may be 90 percent of a bill that you agree with and 10 percent that philosophically you don't agree with. But, you have to look at the total bill and remember the people you are representing back home," said Representative Ken Waddell (D), Columbus County.
They are not scheduled to return to Raleigh until 2014.
