Names of potential replacements for Dallas are starting to leak out of Hillsborough Street. (Trial balloons, perhaps?)
Anyway, here is what we have:
- Jim Burton. We’ve already written about him. But I keep hearing his name from multiple plugged-in sources. I am also hearing there are concerns from on high about his close personal relationship with Dallas.
- Jonathan Felts. He’s been around NCGOP circles for quite a while. He’s been a senior adviser to Gov. Pat McCrory. He served in The White House’s political office under George W. Bush, and has been a professional political consultant.
- Jennifer Behr. She’s a former NCGOP Finance Director, and has served as a regional finance director with the RNC. One HUGE red flag is her “senior organizer” role with Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy. (That’s solar, baby.)
