#nc-02: The lyin’ queen keeps the b.s. flowing
Renee Ellmers really really really needs to be introduced to the truth. The woman has arguably told some of the biggest exaggerations, whoppers, and outright lies in North Carolina political history. And she does it without any apparent shame.
Case in point, this whole Donald Trump endorsement thing. ONE WEEK BEFORE THE PRIMARY she was in Chatham County voting for John Kasich at a local straw poll and praising him as ‘the only adult’ left in the race. Trump WAS in the race then, too, by the way.
She told WRAL that she voted for Trump as a result of “talking to the people.” Then, in the same story, she says she didn’t decide on Trump until the day of the primary.
Then, there is THIS:
Holy crap. Look who’s talking. THIS is coming from a woman who collected roughly ONE MILLION DOLLARS in PAC money during the last election cycle, and regularly raises more money from PACs and other DC sources than she does from her own district. Second, she’s been in DC TWO YEARS LONGER than Holding. So, what is all this ‘I’m an outsider’ crap?
Renee Ellmers wouldn’t know the truth if it walked up and slapped that clown makeup right off her face. Shameful. Just shameful.
Let’s look at conservatism ratings. Conservative Review scores Holding with a gentleman’s C (74%). Ellmers gets a very unlady-like F (52%). Not that far from leadership big shot Patrick McHenry’s F (59%).
Heritage Action says Holding is tied with Walter Jones as the most conservative member of the North Carolina delegation. Ellmers is ranked as the state’s most liberal Republican US House member.
Nee-nee has also set up a nasty attack site hitting Holding. Holding doesn’t live in the district? First, the Constitution doesn’t require it. Second, he’s slightly outside the borders of this gerrymandered mess. Third, he’s got a hell of a lot more relatives INSIDE the 2nd district than Nee-Nee has in the whole state of North Carolina. (She and her husband moved here from Michigan a few years before she filed to run against Bob Etheridge.) Ol’ George was actually born and raised here. Holding’s family also founded and continues to run one of the most renowned successful businesses in the state of North Carolina.
(Ellmers, too, appears to be confused about her district’s boundaries. She has been reportedly trying to set up events inside Lee County — which WAS in the old 2nd, but NOW is in the 6th.)
And the site says Holding is “missing on the job”? (Yeah, there’s photographic evidence of him sleeping on the job. I know.) The Nee-Nee campaign says he is guilty of neglecting his constituents because he didn’t go to a groundbreaking with Pat McCrory. Seriously? I’d take a vote against ObamaCare, or raising the debt ceiling, or tax increases, over a stupid groundbreaking. Give us more of the former, Nee Nee, and less of the latter.)
Big Government Barbie’s site also attacks Holding for (1) opposing corporate welfare and (2) refusing to spend money we don’t have on pork projects. (Wait. Is THIS a REPUBLICAN primary?)

That’s why Greg Brannon is the one to vote for. All incumbents must go!
Not all incumbents. Walter Jones is the best conservative in NC3. He voted against Boehner in the GOP caucus and on the floor, and he voted against Ryan in caucus and on the floor. His chief challenger, Taylor Griffin has some of Boehner’s former staff out raising money for him.
Ditto that! Walter Jones is the real deal.
As opposed to Nee-Nee, amnesty and open borders cheerleader, and otherwise, consummate liar and leadership/ GOPe stooge.
Brannon… elect me elect me.. to something to anything…Im a conservative who delivered 90000 babies.. Good guy but he needs to take it slow… hes not a star and needs experience..
Renee Ellmers needs to go!
Ok, no argument, she’s all you say and more. But cut the love for Holding, he’s really no different from her, those “ratings” notwithstanding. He has reneged on his number one campaign promise, repeatedly voting for debt hikes and omnibus bills. He doesn’t do town hall meets unless it’s over the internet to avoid actual constituents. And he’s notorious in the veteran community for ineffective constituent service.
Are you serious? Wow.
I agree, Holding’$ voting record is similar to Ellmers. Holding voted to fully fund Obama Care , illegal executive amnesty, and every cromnibus spending bill until this year. To paint him as a conservative is very disingenuous. He is in my district and has very poor constituent services. Can anyone site any major difference between him and Renee? I’ll be voting for anyone but these 2 Rinos. And, will not be voting for any incumbents. All these Rinos need to lose so we can start over. Burr, Tillis, Ellmers, Holding, Foxx, etc are Socialist masquerading as Republicans to fool naive voters. What difference does it make who wins the party’s are the same.
Representative George Holding’s Heritage Action Score = 87 % which is excellent. Senator Thom Tillis’s Heritage Score = 59 %, low. Representative Renee Ellmers’s Heritage Score = 58 % low. Senator Richard Burr Heritage Score = 41 %, low.
Representative Holding is voting what is best for the people. Representative Walter Jones Heritage Score = 88 % which is excellent.
thanking my lucky stars I am now in 06 . No more #BigGovBarbie for me. We in Randolph are extremely happy to be freed from this idiot
Agreed, I am looking forward to Mark Walker!
You won’t find Walker to be much better, with the exception that he is more personable than she is, and his constituent service is arguably better. Of course, if it’s a conservative warrior you’re looking for, Walker does have a primary challenger.
In following Renee’s facebook page, the only people who “like” her largely ridiculous posts are her paid staffers, who by Christmas, will be unemployed, and her husband. That’s pathetic!
