NC-03: Allen gets audited. (And it wasn’t pretty.)

  Audits are never fun.  It’s not fun when the IRS shows up to do it.  When you’re involved with the state government, it’s no fun when Beth Wood and her team come calling.  Allen Thomas (D) quit his job as mayor of Greenville to…

NC-09: Bishop gets Club For Growth nod

  So, I guess that other IE was for “opposing”  Stony Rushing.   The Club For Growth threw us for a loop with their endorsement in the Third Congressional District.   In the Ninth, they appear to be betting it all with the man who…

NC-03: Even More questions about that GRNC “recommendation”
