Mark Meadows, Sandy Smith aaaaaaaaand — PAUL WRIGHT ?????


Mark Meadows threw us all for a loop by announcing his retirement from the US House.  The big  money is on Meadows being named the next White House chief of staff. (There has been plenty of talk in the driveby media about a soon-to-happen departure by the current holder of that position, Mick Mulvaney.)


Sources in Raleigh and out west say state senator Jim Davis is being talked into running for Meadows’ congressional seat.  Breitbart is reporting that Meadows chief of staff (and former NCGOP vice chairman) Wayne King may run as well.


So,  it appears that our congressional delegation is in for one big shakeup.  At least THREE of those thirteen faces will be new when the new Congress is sworn in.


The search for a serious alternative to Thom Tillis continues.  The man has never received 50 percent of the vote, yet everyone is scared to run against him.   Sandy Smith has talked a good game about running against him.  But today she has issued a release claiming she will run for the FIRST congressional district.  



Former judge Paul Wright (R) has thrown his name on the ballot against Tillis.  Wright has run for everything under the sun for what seems like the last two decades.   But he never actually campaigns or raises money or anything like that.

    1. You’re not wrong so far as you go, but in some cases, he ran in un-winnable districts. As for the last time he and the other gentleman ran against Burr, there were too many fools who couldn’t see Burr for what he really is. Regardless, two of the three need to go back to the BOE, un-file and get their money back or we’ll be seeing Tillis win in the spring and likely lose in the fall unless the Dems cooperate by not nominating Cal Cunningham and putting up their scariest candidate.

  1. Dump Tillis and go with Mark Meadows… a no brainer!

    Meadows has actually “fought” for what is right and proper and Tillis is a sleazy two face lying rascal who walks around with his licked finger in the air sensing which way the political winds are blowing.

  2. OK, Brant. You asked for a “serious alternative” to Thom Tillis. I’m not saying I’m necessarily the “best alternative” to Tillis, but since those who had said they would run against him chose not to, I accepted your challenge. I filed to run against him yesterday.

    Although this was a sudden decision, it was not made without prayer and serious consideration. Seventy-two hours ago, I wasn’t planning on running again, but I also wasn’t about to let this disappointing man go unchallenged in the primary. Republicans, and especially Conservatives, in our state deserve better. I simply ask for their prayers and patience as I get my campaign up-to-speed.

    In return, I promise the good people of North Carolina that I will be the “Consistent Conservative” Thom Tillis is not. He vacillates between “liberal” and “conservative” way too much for my taste, and I’m guessing the taste of most readers on this website. When I’m serving the citizens of North Carolina in the U.S. Senate, you’ll always know the way I’ll vote on every issue–in the most conservative manner possible!

  3. Attila the Hun would not satisfy some of these johnny-come-lately Republicans.
    We are much to vulnerable to the likes of Mark Meadows.
