Okay, let’s start with the hosts.  Jeff Strunk and Will Kinzel are both recently-departed from the staff of Speaker John Boehner.  Kinzel is the head lobbyist for Delta Airlines, while Strunk is with the predominantly Democrat Forbes-Tate lobbying firm.
capitolWhat’s throwing us for a loop is Emerson Electric’s interest in this race. Their corporate PAC was a sponsor of the event.  Jim Carter, another event host, is VP for Government Affairs (a/k/a LOBBYIST) for Emerson. 
Hunter Moorhead is EVP of DC-based Crossroads Strategies.
H2 Capital Consulting appears to be a campaign consulting firm specialiing in fundraising.  (The domain name tied to the email address above goes back to GoDaddy — not an actual web site for an actual consulting company.) 
$2500 for steak?  It MUST be good.  (But you have to go to DC to get it.)

    Walter Jones reliably votes against amnesty and any pro-illegal alien or anti-U.S. sovereignty bill EVERY TIME. That’s all I need to know.

      Walter Jones also votes against every debt increase bill and every big spending Obama-oriented federal budget.

      Taylor Griffin is a Boehner Republican.

    Bring it don’t sing it! Jones has an Army of folks covering every poll this time, its going to be ugly, especially with Phil Law in the mix…
