Womack is BACK.

  Robin “Hip Replacement”  Hayes WILL INDEED have a competent, credible challenger in the 2019 race for NCGOP state chairman.  Sources tell us Lee County GOP chairman Jim Womack will be taking another stab at sending Dallas and his Grandpa home for good in their clown car.  To refresh your memories, here is coverage of their one and only debate from two years ago.  (The video has been taken down…

#ncpol: Grandpa’s election night was rough. How did Jim Womack do?

In the last battle for NCGOP chairman, we were bombarded with commentary about how Jim Womack can’t beat the Democrats and can’t raise money.   This year, we found that Robin Hayes — the victor in the chairman’s race — has extreme difficulty beating Democrats and has to lean on high-priced “fundraising consultants” to raise money. We all know the statewide results from Tuesday.  Oh-fer-four on some very winnable statewide…

#ncgop: Fur flies (and so do emails) in Woodhouse-Womack spat

Slander [alleged]. Libel [alleged].  Freebies and Freeloaders at the top of the party food chain [alleged].  Sketchy accounting on party FEC reports [alleged].  Grab some popcorn and a comfortable chair, folks.  Saturday’s NCGOP executive committee meeting could be downright FUN. Here’s the latest in the ongoing, um, “discussion” between executive committee member Jim Womack and NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse: On Fri, Nov 10, 2017 at 5:22 PM, Dallas Woodhouse…

#ncgop: Top GOPer blasts NCGOPe move against ‘Haywood 5’

State Republican leaders are meeting Saturday to consider punishment for five conservative activists from Haywood County.   NCGOP Executive Committee member Jim Womack has spoken out via email– suggesting that party leaders are going too far on this one:  Fellow Republicans; I hope to see many of you at tomorrow’s NCGOP ExCom meeting.  I always enjoy the fellowship with fellow Republicans, especially when we can get together to make the NCGOP…

Rubio for President co-chairman Robin Hayes takes credit for Trump’s NC success

That’s right.  Just a few months before being installed via coup as NCGOP state chairman, Robin Hayes was appointed North Carolina co-chairman of the Marco Rubio for President campaign.   Now, just days before delegates choose between Hayes and challenger Jim Womack, the state GOP HQ sends out a release touting Hayes’s “Oval Office meeting” with President Trump.    : Today, North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) Chairman Robin Hayes met…

Womack: Lining up “superstar” endorsements, WNC now key to race

Uh-oh.  We’ve got mail.  We obtained an email briefing from NCGOP chairman candidate Jim Womack to his inner circle of supporters.  It reveals a few interesting nuggets of information. First, Womack reveals his belief that both sides in the NCGOP chairman’s race are focusing their energy now, in the waning days of the campaign, on the western side of the state.  Womack, in the email, tells his supporters of some events…

Womack: Dallas STILL not sharing, playing nice

  We reported earlier on NCGOP state chairman candidate Jim Womack’s frustations over NCGOP HQ not sharing information with him.  We also reported on executive director Dallas Woodhouse’s denials of possessing the information Womack was seeking. AND we reported on the email that PROVED Dallas and his team possess at least one of the items Womack was seeking but not getting.  Even after all that, it appears that Dallas and…

#ncpol: Uh-oh, Dallas. We’ve got MORE MAIL.

We like to deal in facts around here.  So, if you’re going to send an email that is likely to be leaked to us, PLEASE BE ACCURATE.  (Thank you.) We reported earlier on an email exchange between Jim Womack, candidate for NCGOP chairman,  and NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse.  Womack was complaining that the state party HQ was not sharing information — specifically convention delegate lists — with him.  …

#ncpol: Uh-oh. We’ve got mail.

  It appears to be from NCGOP chairman candidate Jim Womack to Dallas Woodhouse — the, um, “brains” of the state party — and somebody named Katie at NCGOP HQ.  And it apparently has been passed around to a few others not named on the email: Katie; I am once again requesting assistance in obtaining delegate lists for all of the counties and districts.  I am told all of these…

#ncgop: Raleigh’s heavy hand

The NCGOPe is skeered.  The “little people” out there are making trouble again.  Raleigh knows it.  Dallas Woodhouse, I am told by several sources, is proudly announcing to anyone who will listen that he “will not work for Jim Womack.”  (I haven’t confirmed this with Jim, but I am doubting that Dallas will even have that option under Chairman Jim Womack.) Instead of responding to concerns from outside the beltline,…
