NC-09: Big Labor, radical left have bet BIG $$$$ on Dan McCready (and they’ll likely keep doing it)

  Democrats are working hard to sell us on their alleged clean-cut, GI Joe, patriotic-as-apple-pie, capitalism-loving, All-American Boy nominee in the Ninth Congressional District.  For all that spin, Mr. McCready sure does whip up a lot of excitement among folks nationwide and across the globe…
