#nc-02: A SEVEN-WAY GOP primary?

Well, the Second District GOP primary race for 2016 is getting to be quite a crowded affair.  We’ve all known incumbent Renee Ellmers was running for reelection.  We’ve known about challengers Jim Duncan, Kay Daly and Frank Roche. Second District GOP heavy-hitters are telling me…

#nc-02: STILL looking for that shame. (Anybody seen it?)

We chronicled our efforts earlier to identify at least ONE shred of shame in Renee Ellmers.   Check out what Big Government Barbie™ is promoting on her campaign website:  Hmmm.  RESTORING conservative principles. Whose? Hers?   Conservative Review has blessed our Nee-nee with a 55 percent…

#nc-02: Does THIS WOMAN have ANY shame? (Any at all?)

That’s what Renee Ellmers has.  This woman must really think her voters are stupid.  Hell, her scam has worked for nearly six years now.  When she ran against Bob Etheridge in 2010, she blasted him for campaigning on the taxpayer dime.  In 2014, and again this…

#nc-02: Nee-Nee sticks us with the bill

What’s bad for brawlin’ Bobby E. is apparently A-Okay for Nee-Nee. (Gosh, we’re poetic this morning.)  We’ve written extensively about stuff that show up in our mailboxes here in the Second District from congresswoman Renee Ellmers.  They show up right about campaign time.  They look just…

#ncpol: Ellmers joins Dems in bringing Ex-Im Bank back from dead

It was a nasty piece of government waste and cronyism. It needed to go.  Its charter expired on June 30.  It WAS dead.  But congressional Democrats — and some Republicans — decided to carry water for the unions and the donor class by giving the…

#nc-02: Nee-Nee does the Ex-Im dance

The GOPe is at it again.  Just when you thought it was dead, the Export-Import Bank is coming back from the dead with a vengeance like we haven’t seen since Jason Voorhees.   Ex-Im is plain and simple cronyism.  It’s a government giveaway to big corporations…

#nc-02: Drive-bys scrambling to save Nee-Nee

The N&O is officially inserting itself into the 2016 campaign — making all kinds of in-kind contributions to its beloved former Raleigh mayor Charles (*Slobber, Swoon*) Meeker’s campaign for state Labor Commissioner.  (For what it’s worth, Meeker could put you to sleep while screaming curse words…

#NC-02: The Money Chase

The numbers are in through September 30.  (Keep in mind, these totals are from a period prior to the outbreak of all this McCarthy-ism.) Renee Ellmers is reporting $145,276 in individual contributions but  $558,750 from PACS.  That is a grand total of $704,026 raised. (Her…

#NC-02: Tim D’Annunzio testing the waters?

Or at least someone appears to be doing it for him.  Phone polling was conducted yesterday throughout the Second Congressional District with a lot of questions mentioning the wealthy Hoke County businessman in connection with Renee Ellmers and other potential candidates in the US House…

#nc-02: Frank Roche says Nee-Nee needs to Quit-Quit

No, it’s not for what you might think.  Roche has put out video replaying Renee Elmers’s 2010 statement about her support for term limits.  Specifically, she says THREE TERMS is more than enough for Members of Congress.  At the end of this year, she will…
