Bob Steinburg. (*Pure Class.*)
He’s picked fights with opposing candidates and staff. He’s threatened the Dare County DA. Now, he’s reportedly crashed an elementary school faculty meeting and verbally abused some of the staff. From what I hear, senator Bob Steinburg (R) is doing a bang-up Job of getting-out-the-vote for his Democrat opponent in November — Tess Judge.
A friend of this site, who happens to teach at the school in question (Gatesville Elementary in Gates County), shared an eyewitness account of Hurricane Bob’s, um, “visit”to the school this past week:
My dear friends and family, I would like to share what happened to me at work today. My hope is that you will share it and get your friends to share it so that it goes viral. At our monthly staff meeting at school today, we were visited by Senator Bob Steinburg. (I was told that the Senator invited himself.)
Several of the things he said were not exactly correct. He stated that NC was first in teacher pay in the Southeast. (Actually, we are second — 30th in the nation). He also touted that the senate had put in a 5% pay raise for teachers in a budget the governor vetoed. (The governor vetoed the budget for several reasons, one of which was he wanted a higher percentage for teacher’s raises.)
When he had finished his talking, teachers began to ask questions. I asked about teacher salaries and raises. I stated that due to inflation and small teacher raises (or no teacher raises) I believe I am not better off than 10 years ago and have struggled my entire 23 year career.
He then asked me my salary, I had to think and told him what it was approximately. He then asked me what I thought his salary was. I said I couldn’t guess. He stated it was only $14,000 a year, and he “work(s) harder than [I] do.” […]
I felt highly disrespected and stood up and walked out of the meeting. I told the principal I would return when she restarted the staff meeting and I didn’t appreciate being told he works harder than I do.
I was told later that as I was walking out Steinburg said I was disrespectful and that I was part of the problem. A few minutes later I had calmed down and was going to return to the meeting. The nurse and the PE teacher saw me and came to tell me not to come back in ( which scared me). I thought I had really screwed up.
I learned the rest of the story after the meeting. When I had walked out earlier the senator asked for my name and said “He’s going to pay for that.”
The principal would not give my name. The Senator then asked my principal’s name. She also refused that request. He told her she should go after me and reprimand me, to which she said, “you don’t tell me what to do.”
After returning to the meeting, a State Board Member reiterated that we were working very hard and learned to do things we had never done before in a very short time. After the meeting the staff and principal were very supportive. I was still upset, but felt very loved. […]

I really do miss the old conservative Democrats we once elected from the Eastern part of the state. They were great men, devoted to conservative principles, and had the respect of their constituents. Of course, the civil rights revolution changed all that and such men no longer are in office. Sadly, some of the Republicans who have succeeded them just don’t get it. Steinburg is obviously a good example.
Thank you for sharing. I am the teacher who posted this on my Facebook page. His rendition of what happened is embellished and filled with untruths. I am telling all my friends, family, and anyone who will listen what happened to me. No one should be spoken to this way. It didn’t just happen to me, it happened to all of us at that meeting.
I’m so sorry that happened to you, Rusty. Please don’t think that Bob is what Republicans are… he is not. He’s an embarrassment to us all.
Tess is a good woman and I’m glad you’re voting for her.
Judge is a hard-core Socialist who will defund the police, side with “peaceful” rioters and looters, make NC an Illegal Alien Sanctuary like NJ, ban and confiscate firearms, expand welfare and repeal the Republican Income Tax cuts.
Tess Judge and Senate Democrats appreciate your continued attacks on Bob. They have targeted his district, according to all reports. If you visit Rusty Boyd’s Facebook page, you will find a load of anti republican rhetoric. Make no mistake, IF Judge were ever in the Senate, she would vote in lockstep with Roy Cooper’s liberal demands. The policies that legislative Republicans have put in place would be rolled back. Your taxes will go up, and Government spending in NC will again be out of control.
There is a difference of night and day between Steinburg and his predecessor, Senator Bill Cook (R-Beaufort). Cook was a nice guy and a good conservative. He got gerrymandered out of his district for the latter.
The gerrymander happened because the Green Energy mafia wanted Cook out. Cook was one of the leading Senators exposing the green energy scam. They wanted Steinberg, who was a long time lapdog of the green boondoggle. The gerrymander took Cook’s county out of the district and added Steinberg’s, even though that made the district much more marginal for Republicans. That gerrymander may end up costing the GOP their senate majority this election year by losing this seat..
The GOP caucus hired an out of state redistricting expert to draw maps, but he had medical problems and much of the actual map drawing was turned over to a Senate RINO staffer, Brent Woodcox. Woodcox is a millenial who got caught making anti-Trump social media posts, but was allowed to keep his job anyway, and also a green energy supporter. Woodcox ran his draft of maps by the liberal pressure group Common Cause before he ever showed them to GOP state senators. The maps actually got released to the public by Common Cause before GOP Senators saw them.
Woodcox put Cook’s county into a heavily Democrat and heavily minority district while giving the district he created for Steinburg only a slight Republican tilt. The two districts could have easily been adjusted by shifting a few counties to keep Cook in it and keep it a better Republican district, and those shifts would have brought both districts better into alignment with objective standards of redistricting, but that was not Woodcox’s objective. His objective was to remove a roadblock to the solar and wind cabal. The GOP may lose a critical seat because of that special interest motivated gerrymander.
Steinberg announced for the district created for him almost immediately. Steinburg is a poor candidate with a prickly personality, and running him in such a marginal district has always been a recipe for losing a seat.
Tess Judge is a far left SJW, and the teacher who is whining is also clearly a big liberal from some of his comments. Given Judge’s ideology, there is little choice but to hold one’s nose in November for Steinburg this time and hope the next redistricting will encourage a conservative primary challenge. Steinburg needs to go, but not to a hard left opponent like Tess Judge.
