AFP-NC targets state Rep. Charles Jeter, other RINOs

afpIt’s been quite disappointing to see how many alleged conservatives and Facebook-ad-Jeterconservative groups have kept quiet and kept holding their noses as Republicans in Raleigh and DC run like mad from the party platform. We’ve stuck to our guns. So have a handful of others out there in cyberspace here in the Tar Heel State.

But Donald Bryson at Americans for Prosperity in Raleigh appears to be standing with us in our RINO hunt.  He’s gone after Republicans on Jones Street for raising the gas tax.  Bryson is turning up the heat on the majority RINO123regarding Thom Tillis’s alternative energy mandates.  Now, he’s running ads against Republicans who have supported corporate welfare.  Like, for instance, Charles Jeter (R-Mecklenburg).

Don will catch heat, like we have, for straying from the party line.  But, it’s not about the party.  It’s about the future of our state and our country.  It’s not about loading up the bureaucracy with Rs. It’s about stripping the bureaucracy of power and giving it back to the people.

  1. I understand that Jeter is the roommate of liberal former Democrat legislator Paul Tine, which explains a lot.

  2. To help loosen the Beltway and Raleigh Establishment death grip on power, exercise the only ‘weapon’ you still have: your uncommitted vote. Both parties take you for granted when you are registered under their banner. Move your vote to the Unaffiliated column and now your vote means something, and they will scramble to your door.

    Help us move 20% of Moore County voters to the Unaffiliated column, so we have some influence over the candidate selection process. 20% increase in Unaffiliated is a game changer going into the primaries. We have nothing to lose after three election cycles of betrayal by a rogue Congress and President.

    1. Tine is not a lobbyist. He is still a legislator and a liberal, just a former Democrat. Jeter’s influence is seen in getting a liberal like Tine who is not a Republican to sit in the GOP caucus. Also, the fact that a GOP legislator chums with a liberal non-Republican to the point of rooming with him, bears watching.

  3. Believe it or not, for the most part legislators from both parties actually get along and like each other…shocking, I know…

  4. Thanks smartass Wes for your dumbass response. Therein lies the problem, two parties exist to promote their parties ideas, not so for this circle jerk club in Raleigh and Washington dreaming up new ways to shit on us back home and donning the knee pads to service each other and their friends. Better that these assholes are fighting like cats in a bag and nothing get done than thinking of new ways to shit on us back home.

  5. I find some of this as amazing. Jeter and several like him are in districts not made for Republicans… he’s in a D1. Perhaps our party should stop all efforts to win those close races in which Republican candidates must bring conservative D’s and left of center unaffiliates onboard. I figure that would cover our candidates even in districts that are R2 maybe 3… a loss of what 10 seats without a shot fired. After all only the best funded candidates in those seats would have a chance in a big Democrat year. For you purists there are a few gentleman down there who should be thrilled to live in heavily Republican districts, because their firebrand style wouldn’t sell elsewhere. Some places, folks just want something different, even if you find it problematic. You should be looking at districts/candidates and incumbents with strong Republican backing with weak kneed Republicans residing in them. The Jeters of the world have to live in their districts just like you do, they simply have it tougher than most. Lets stop holding that against them.

    1. For PAC’s, the type of targeting makes a lot of sense, and that is exactly what the major national conservative PACs like SCF, C4G, and others do. They target those GOP incumbents who stray most from the reservation in the seats that are heavily Republican, and also factor in the viability of the challenger. It is also what conservative political groups should do in NC.

      AFP, however, is a public policy group, and does not get into campaigns per se, so maybe they do not think as politically as the PACs. They just see a politician who is not representing the philosophy of his party and call attention to that fact.
