Some thoughts on filing (thus far)

      Here is the latest list.    Revenge. Rematch.  etc.  It seems a number of folks are attempting to regain posts they lost in 2018.   Former senator Mike Lee appears to be attempting a comeback in the Wilmington area.  Over in the Fayetteville…

With Tucker OUT, Walker back to “exploring” a Tillis challenge

    Congressmen Mark Walker (R) and George Holding (R) both got royally screwed by the new congressional maps.  They are now sitting in majority Democrat districts.     Holding has been quoted in the driveby media today saying that he would not run against…

Garland, we hardly knew ye.

  Just like the month of March,  the rich guy from Raleigh came onto the scene like a lion, but left quietly like a lamb.   Garland Tucker had quite a story to tell — a successful businessman not unlike our current president.  A background…

Thoughts on the new map

  I don’t know how SOME of these new districts will pass muster in court.  I’ve had problems with the current districts.  What do people in Johnston County have in common with people in Brunswick County, issue-wise?  It was well known at the time of…

New map: A dilemma for ‘Public Official A’?

    One milestone most people in politics TRY to avoid is getting mentioned in indictment documents — federal or otherwise.  In  his short career in DC,  congressman Mark Walker has already achieved JUST THAT.   Drive-by reports indicate that the new congressional maps definitely…

#NC-03: Wannabe Murphy aide causing confusion, giving congressman’s team a headache

  Sometimes, folks get so enthusiastic about the candidates they support that they cause more problems than they solve.  That appears to be the case with GOP activist Dianne Layden and rookie congressman Greg Murphy.  Media and political types all over the NC political universe…

Dan The Man.

  Bishop, that is. One of our two newest Members of Congress is demonstrating he won’t be shy about coming out swinging:   While  Richard Burr snivels and cowers and lets Mark Warner (D-VA) run his committee,  congressman Dan Bishop is taking Adam Schiff’s impeachment…
