Southeastern North Carolina has always been a special and unique place for so many who were born here as well as for others who have moved here and now call the area their home. Ilario Pantano, however, by his own admission, doesn’t care WHAT state or region he would represent.
When talking to a Nevada crowd, Pantano boasted:
