NC11: House Freedom Caucus NOT supporting Wayne King to replace Meadows?

    THAT is what a recent email from The House Freedom Fund — the caucus’s political / fundraising arm — appears to suggest.  In fact,  the email lists a number of “important election dates”:   Notice anything?   North Carolina’s primary elections are in…

#NC11: Wayne King claiming Trump and Meadows mantle. (But neither appear to be supporting him.)

  The Breitbart website can be counted on  at the drop of a  hat to take dictation for congressional candidate and former Mark Meadows aide Wayne King.   They’ve done it again.  This time,  it’s a glowing release about Wayne’s coming ad blitz and his…

#ncsen: Won’t debate his own primary opponents. But wants FIVE debates against eventual DEM foe.

    Special Interest cash-whore, gay rights champion,  and border wall foe Thomas Roland Tillis is  not interested in explaining himself to his own party’s voters.  He never got 50 percent of the vote (primary OR general) when he was first elected to the US…

Crocodile tears over judges

  It’s interesting to see and hear all of these Republican  bigwigs bemoan “legislating from the bench”:     Thom Tillis and Richard Burr have voted for MANY of these judges who have overturned votes of North Carolinians and their state legislators.   The state…

More on 2020 filing

      Here’s the final list.   The Libertarian Party actually has a candidate named “Vermin Supreme” who has qualified for North Carolina’s March presidential primary ballot.   While they appear to be abandoning the 2nd and 6th congressional districts,  state Republicans seem to…

Is the attempted field-clearing & mud-slinging in the CD-11 GOP field all for the benefit of Wayne King?

  I’ve long been a fan of Mark Meadows.  That’s why it’s hard for me to believe that he would aid -and-abet politics-as-usual.     Filing for the March 2020 primaries ended Friday.   Meadows announced on THURSDAY that he was retiring from Congress for…

Walker: NO to 2020 Senate run. (Where do we go now?)

  With Garland Tucker’s surprise exit from the race,  many of us were holding our noses in preparation for voting for congressman Mark Walker.  Some of us were willing to let the whole ‘Public Official A’ thing slide , in order to get rid of…
