If you pay close enough attention  to  liberals, they will actually give you clues as to what they’re really up to.  Take this recent poll from  that leftist clown car known as Public Policy Polling. They’re showing Pat McCrory (41% to 45% for Cooper) and…

Gov. Pat: The Sequel ????

I have picked up some pretty high-level, credible chatter from sources talking up a 2020 rematch for governor between Roy Cooper and Pat McCrory.  Team McCrory cites the relative closeness of the 2016 race as the biggest reason their guy ought to get another crack…

“The dozens” meet #ncgovdebate

Roy Cooper and Pat McCrory and Jim Stockdale Lon Cecil got together for a debate last night.  Believe it or not, HB2 got mentioned.  (I know — SHOCKING.)   *Can you BELIEVE that one of these guys will be governing our state over the next…

#ncpol: The AG has been RUN OVER. (Call the crime lab.)

Pat McCrory would be IN MUCH BETTER SHAPE politically if he had governed the last four years like he carried himself in last night’s debate.  He sounded like an actual Republican, and called Roy Cooper out like he should have been called out long ago….

Attorney General — and Democrat nominee for governor — Roy Cooper wants us all to believe he has “fixed” the problems with the state crime lab that made national news, overturned convictions, and killed prosecution efforts. But a presentation by Moore County sheriff Neil Godfrey Tuesday…
