  1. I appreciate the efforts of Freedomworks but it doesn’t take their report to know this obvious fact. Not only is she the most liberal GOP, she is one of the most easily manipulated members of Congress. It was plan to see that she was bought and paid for almost as soon as she arrived in Washington. All it took was a committee chairmanship and a few choice CNN interviews.

  2. Rene Ellmers: she won in NC by getting the librats to vote in the primary and after that, all she had to do is beat the hollywood and militant gay financed Clay Aikin(D). She would have lost in the primary’s had it not been for underhanded trick of making sure her REAL CONSTITUENTS (libmarxist & RINO’s), changed the intended process of fair representation. The demonrats have NO moral compass other than the end justifies the means. That pain conservatives feel in their back?… it’s Rene’s knife.
    Ellmers is despised by the majority of conservatives in NC….Justifiably so
