Hillary Clinton aims to answer voter concerns in North Carolina through a series of ads.

(CNN)— Senator Hillary Clinton’s campaign released the second of a series of “NC Ask me” ads aimed at answering North Carolinian voter concerns.

The ad called “Tammie” comes one week after Clinton invited North Carolian’s to ask her “anything and everything.”

Tammie Bright, a working mother of three from Cherryville asks Clinton: “What are your plans on reducing the rising cost of gas?”

Clinton responds that she would “invest $150 billion in research and development of new kinds of energy.”

“Let’s put more hybrid vehicles on the fast track. And when we create new clean energies and technologies, we’ll be creating new jobs right here in North Carolina.”

According to Clinton’s campaign, they have received nearly 10,000 responses to their request for voters to submit their questions online. The campaign says that staff and volunteers will reply to each submission regardless of whether the query is chosen for an ad.

    It amazes me that so many people have brought up the past about Bill and Monica. I am even more amazed that people are making the Clinton's desire to not discuss it a major issue.

    Here's a thought..it was nobody's business then and it is nobody's business now! That was between them and them alone. And the fact that Hillary handled that situation with such dignity and grace speaks volumes about her character.

    Do people not realize, sometimes it's not about who you like more, but who would have the best chance to beat the Republican? Think back 7 1/2 years ago. If more peole had voted for Gore, instead of people that had no chance to win at all, maybe..just maybe..we wouldn't have the current person in office..and maybe..just maybe...we wouldn't be at war, and we would still have respect in the world, and we wouldn't be in an economic crisis...food for thought people.

    It’s hard to understand why so many of you are planning on voting for Obama. But again, as one of my Canadian friends pointed out recently: Americans voted twice for George Bush (junior) – their voting judgment is obviously not too sophisticated. While I thought this was a rude comment, I think he was right.
