NC-09: Mr. McCready and the company he keeps

  You can often tell a lot about a person by looking at the people closest to them.  For instance, we know that Dan McCready was very cozy during the 2018 version of this race with some of the most radical leftists the nation has to offer.   But if you look at his private business, you’ll see that two of his closest advisors have a track record of sticking…

Wow. Look at what’s brewing on Twitter.

  I swear.  I don’t know WHO to pull for on this one.   And the response?

NC-09: Ginger McCready, useful leftist tool

  The Dan McCready campaign wants to paint the picture of a decorated war hero, committed capitalist, and devout church-going family man who simply wants to go to DC to fight for his hometown folks and their values. It’s pretty clear from looking at McCready’s company website that he is simply a front man for a group of Obama-loving crony capitalists from Charlotte.  It’s pretty clear from his campaign report…

NC-03: Odds & Ends

  Fundraising.  The campaign of Jeff Moore (R) is touting their guy’s fundraising haul of $75,000 in the first week since he filed.  The DC-based Politico website is reporting that Greg Murphy (R) has surpassed the $200,000 mark in the campaign’s first TWO weeks.   Perrys Meet The Daceys.    Dr. Joan Perry (R) of Kinston  has won the support of Craven County’s Scott Dacey, who lobbies the federal government on…

NC-03: The doctor fights back

  Politics IS a full-contact sport.  (As if you didn’t already know this.)  Far too often, I see really good people play way too nice and get their reputations destroyed. Judging from a video taken at a recent Third District GOP confab, congressional candidate and state Rep. Greg Murphy (R-Pitt) is deciding to assertively stand up for himself. Considered by many to be a front-runner in the race, Murphy has…

NC-09: The battle to topple Ginger McCready

  The US Marines have got to LOVE Ginger McCready, the Democrats’ great white hope in the crusade to steal the Ninth Congressional District after 60 years of uninterrupted Republican rule.  No Marine, or ex-Marine, has done more public whining and crying about anything than  lil’ Ginger. It  just demonstrates the damage the left’s efforts to turn military service into just another way to pay off your Harvard and Yale…

NC-03: If I had a dime for every person who filed for Congress …

  I’d be $2.60 richer! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the deadline for filing for the Third Congressional District seat in the US House has come and gone.  And boy have you folks in that district got a crowd to sift through.   We’ve got 17 Republicans,  6 Democrats,  2 Libertarians, 1 Constitution Partier –—  and a partridge in a pear tree.   Literally, something for everybody.   This beats the…

NC-03: A consultant-palooza! (Up to 18 candidates, with one day to go.)

    This special election to replace the late, great Walter Jones is turning into quite a full-employment act for political consultants.  We’ve got quite a crowd in the race already.  And I detect at least FOUR who were recruited by political consultants seeking an extra paycheck or two in this off-year election.   Dr. Joan Perry (R) of Kinston, a pediatrician and former UNC board of governors member, added…

NC-03: Gettin’ kinda crowded in here

  We’ve got two more days left to file for this race.   Apparently, there are a helluva lot of people with dreams of working in Washington, DC. As of RIGHT NOW, we have FOUR DEMOCRATS, ELEVEN REPUBLICANS, ONE LIBERTARIAN, AND ONE CONSTITUTION PARTY candidate.  And I am aware of at least another handful of folks who are seriously eyeing the race, but haven’t yet filed.   The Democrat field…

NC-03: Is that sulphur I smell?

  I knew that the wide-open opportunity in this congressional race would be too much for NCGOPe uber-consultants Dee Stewart and Paul Shumaker to pass up. All sorts of indicators are telling me that this duo  are beating the bushes to get former state senator Thom Goolsby of Wilmington to move a little further north and join the GOP fray in The Third Congressional District.   Goolsby had a pretty…
