One from Jones Street told me:
“I think the whole tidal wave idea is being oversold by the party. I don’t see it, frankly. I think the Republicans will still have a majority when the smoke clears in November. But I think we’ll make some inroads in Charlotte and Raleigh — the Dollar seat, the Malone seat.”
It’s pretty clear that the GOP base is not happy with congressional and legislative Republicans right now. Can’t Democrats take advantage of that?
The “honorables” I spoke with said the NCGOPe will counter that problem
One “honorable” I spoke with told me — I still don’t know if he was joking — that one of the proposed amendments to the state constitution will seek to establish “a right to hunt and fish.”
