More proof: ANYONE can run for Congress.

We previously featured the inane rantings of one Adam Coker.  He is one of a gaggle of Democrat candidates out there competing for the honor to represent us in Washington. Well, Adam is BACK: Wages have not gone up in 25 years? Well, THE FACTS say…

WRAL’s Cambridge Analytica / NCGOP “nothing-burger”

We made our peace with the UK about — oh — 200 years ago, but Raleigh’s WRAL still wants to see something nefarious emanating from our former motherland.  It’s interesting to see WRAL tut-tutting over someone else’s alleged integrity indiscretions while it (a) continues to…

#ncpol: Wheels falling off of Shumaker’s ‘Trump-hug’ strategy?

Uber-consultant Paul Shumaker is advising candidates in two of the state’s most-watched congressional primaries:  the GOP races in the 3rd and the 9th. Indian casino lobbyist (and Shumaker client) Scott Dacey has been casting himself as the top Trump-booster and beating up incumbent Walter Jones…

NC-03: Dacey’s own #’s show a loss to Jones AND somebody named UNDECIDED.

There is an interesting strategy being put forth by NCGOPe types this cycle.  Put a lot of bad news out there, and demand MO’ MONEY. We saw Matt Bales with the NC House GOP caucus doing it.   Now here comes Indian casino lobbyist (and GOP…

Dazed & Confused: The Linda Coleman story

Apparently the Raleigh Democrat is still punch-drunk from the consecutive whippings she took from Lt. Dan: Former Wake County Commissioner Linda Coleman is sounding the alarm on alleged Russian meddling in her campaign for office. “I am a firm believer in see something, say something,”…

#ncpol: Donald,um, who? Trump?(Oh, yeah. He’s good.)

Two of the more interesting races in May will be GOP congressional primaries involving candidates managed by uber-consultant Paul Shumaker.  Shumaker is known for his cookie-cutter approach to campaign management.  And it shows in his guidance of the campaigns of his clients, Robert Pittenger in…

#ncpol: Marine’s death earns Hudson some unwanted attention

Here’s the story from Big League Politics: In late January, a Marine Reconnaissance Scout died in a multi-mission parachute training accident in Coolidge, Arizona. “Alex was one in a million. Always had a smile on his face,” said Noelia Davis, the fallen Marine’s cousin. According…
