ConnectNC: “so wide-open …. so vaguely-written it creates endless possibilities”

big spenderI talked with a high-powered source from Jones Street about why Republicans there — suposedly so frugal and conservative — were pushing the ConnectNC bond issue. Here was the source’s take:

”It is so wide-open.  The way that thing is written you can do just about anything you want with that money.  And the voters gave you permission to do so.”

My source expressed concern that one’s level of support for ConnectNC is being tied to a perception of how strong your support for Governor McCrory is:

“What’s funny about that?  Our Republican governor and his closest allies are pushing this issue.  The people who are most likely to vote for Roy Cooper for governor are the ones most excited about this thing passing.  There is a serious disconnect here.”
