A sure sign your oppponent is NOT taking you seriously …

Trotman is the Republican candidate “challenging” Jackson in November.  You may recall that she was recruited by our boy Dallas but got caught up in a dispute over whether she registered to vote (and as a NC Republican) in time to legally file for the…

Radical left keeps on raging against history

They can’t sell the Democrat platform to anyone living outside Durham, Wake, Orange, or Buncombe counties.  So, they’re left with whipping up racial animosity and attacking people who’ve been dead for 100 years. (Oh, and trashing the good ol’ American “okay” sign.) Lefties have cheered…

#ncga: Lucky to hold on.

I had the opportunity to connect this past weekend with some political players who have been very influential in recent years regarding cash and strategy for North Carolina General Assembly campaigns.  Their overall message?

Rethinking the hunting & fishing amendment

We made some cursory judgements on the proposed constitutional amendments earlier. Our friends at The Beaufort Observer have come along with a piece that has us rethinking  our initial YES vote: […] Had the proposed amendment said “The right of the people to hunt, fish,…

#ncga: Bobby Hanig, “your opioid attic friend in spot.”

Maybe it’s some kind of local Outer Banks slang.  (To the rest of us, it sounds like nonsense.)  But THAT is how NC House candidate Bobby Hanig described himself in an email to a colleague on the Currituck County board of commissioners: FYI — the…
