#ncga: In HD-52, Simon (D) outrai$ed Boles (R) in low-budget Q2 tussle

They appear to really be pinching pennies in this Moore County-based district.      Republican incumbent Jamie Boles has been representing this district since 2008.  He’s had no significant challenges from Democrats, but has had two serious Republican primary challengers. His last primary challenger, Aberdeen town commissioner Ken Byrd, raised…

#ncga: In SD-1, Phelps (D) outrai$ed Steinburg (R) in Q2

I’m starting to see a pattern here. Bill Cook (R) is stepping down from his admirable tenure representing district 1.  The district on the ballot for November is more Democrat-friendly than the one Cook has been serving. State Rep. Bob Steinburg (R) is seeking to move up to the state…

#ncga: In SD-25, Mills(D) outrai$ed incumbent McInnis (R) in Q2

It took a vicious slander campaign courtesy of Phil Berger and the boys to get him through the May primary. Tom McInnis might need even more of the same  if he’s going to pull out a win in November. According to the latest disclosure reports, Pinehurst Democrat Helen Probst Mills has…

Why did NCGOP hire a private eye?

According to the party’s latest financial report, a payment of nearly $5000 was made to Scott & Associates Investigations of Greensboro on April 10. I understand that opposition research is an integral part of a political organization’s business plan.  Malleus Political Strategies of Raleigh got paid for some of that…

Steamed about high gas prices? Tell THIS GUY.

I am sure there is quite a bit of sticker shock going around as people gas up for their holiday travels.  Our local paper here in Moore County — which, as you may know, was brought down  from the mountain by Moses himself — published a piece about how you’ll…

#ncga: The Jones Street oligarchy

We get all kinds of blather about how The US Capitol and the General Assembly are “the people’s house” populated by “the people’s representatives.”  Those terms are missing a few key words.  It’s actually “the people with the big bank accounts who write big checks’s house” and “the people with…

There’s a new driveby lap-dog in town!

Wow. It seems like just yesterday that lefties and their driveby comrades had their collective granny panties in a wad about analogies comparing Barack Hussein Obama and his policies to Hitler and HIS policies. Fast forward to this weekend and all of the open borders loonies marching in Raleigh and…

*”Testing, testing,1,2,3 — Racism. Cruelty. Racism. Is this on?”*

You can’t take your kids with you when you go to jail. You can’t take your kids with you to your job (in MOST cases).  You can’t take your kids with you when you are admitted to the hospital. Departments of Social Services all over the country separate kids from…

#ncsen: Tom Farr STILL left hanging out there

I am sure Thomas Farr is starting to feel like a ping-pong ball.  DC politicians and special interests have batted him and his reputation back and forth since 2006 over the promise of a federal judgeship. The leftist point of contention over Farr?  He worked for the late Senator Jesse…

Patrick McHenry’s BFF in DC calls for mob violence

No, NOT Dee Stewart.  (The OTHER one.)  It wasn’t long ago that congressman Patrick McHenry was cooing over his best friend on-the-other-side-of-the-aisle Maxine Waters (D-CA): […]”I’ve got a very good relationship with and have been able to pass serious legislation with Maxine Waters. I’ve got enormous respect for Maxine; I…
