“Renee Ellmers for North Carolina”? (*Ewwwww!*)

  This campaign consultant is circulating the following: This info sure doesn’t come up on our Facebook searches.  (*Of course, we might be blocked.  We’re well-known fans of this particular she-devil.*)  We broke the story a while back about some consultants trying to get her to come back from her…

NC-02: PACs, lobbyists pay the way for Dr. and Mrs. Nee-Nee

Renee Ellmers has set a new standard for bald-faced hypocrisy and outright lying.  She apparently thinks the voters are too stupid to check the facts.  Given her TWO reelections, she might be right about a lot of her voters.  The Ellmers campaign this year has been savaging George Holding for…

NC-02: The Donald on the phone for Nee-Nee

I swear, they’ve got to work on the political instincts at Trump HQ:  Donald Trump made his first congressional endorsement as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee on Saturday, releasing a robocall that features his praise of North Carolina Rep. Renee Ellmers. In the recording, sent to Tar Heel voters, Trump…

Monkey Business Report: Campaign signs in NC-02

I am hearing things are getting a little rough on the ground in that 3-way fight between George Holding, Renee Ellmers and Greg Brannon. My sources are telling me that some of the Holding campaign’s yard signs are disappearing to be replaced with signs of similar style that claim Holding…

#nc-02: Nee-nee in THIRD PLACE ???

If you believe consultant Carter Wrenn, THAT is apparently the case:  Renee Ellmers was being clever. She thought. By telling voters George Holding had opposed ‘the U.S. Army.’ But it turned out to not be clever at all. Because when Holding explained that Ellmers was claiming he’d voted against the…

#nc-02: Two guys, a girl and a Crabtree

Well, WRAL hosted a debate featuring the three candidates for this US House seat Thursday night.  Here’s the video.  Of course, I watched — so you don’t HAVE to, and made some observations: LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEEE.  I’M DAVID CRABTREEEEEEEEEE.  North Carolina’s very own Ted Baxter was in typical form —…

#nc-02: Drivebys perplexed by Right’s rejection of Ellmers

First it was The Club For Growth. Now, Americans For Prosperity is reaching out to smack Big Govt Barbie.™  This has the driveby media just flummoxed.  HOW — HOW can these right-wingers be against the darling of the Trump campaign?  How ???  Nee-nee is eating up the attention her clinging…

#NC-02 Club For Growth: ABNN (Anybody BUT Nee-Nee)

The drivebys are stunned — stunned, I tell you — that the conservative Club For Growth would come out against the reelection of “Trump ally” Renee Ellmers.  Yes, this is the same woman who — just a few years ago, in response to criticisms that she pretended to be Tea…

#nc-02: The lyin’ queen keeps the b.s. flowing

Renee Ellmers really really really needs to be introduced to the truth.  The woman has arguably told some of the biggest exaggerations, whoppers, and outright lies in North Carolina political history. And she does it without any apparent shame. Case in point, this whole Donald Trump endorsement thing.  ONE WEEK…
