NC-03: The Doctors Are IN! (Murphy, Perry top the field at the end of the night)

#nc-03: Doctor Flip-Flop

  Nope.  THAT is not the newest Bond villain.   We’re talking about congressional candidate Joan Perry (R) of Kinston.  She’s getting  a lot of mileage from hugging babies in her campaign ads.  And she should.  As a veteran, respected pediatrician, she’s done a lot…
