#ncga: Jim Perry, solar (and wind) goon?

  Methinks Henry Hinton and I gave the freshman Republican senator from Kinston  a wee bit too much credit.   I got the impression from listening to Henry’s Greenville-based radio program that Perry was allied with majority leader Harry Brown to limit the expansion of…
