#ncga: NC Senate GOPers reportedly not excited about Woodhouse NCGOP candidacy

pbWe posted earlier about Dallas Woodhouse angling for the top staff job at NCGOP HQ, and also about a bit of weaselly sneakiness on Jones Street to divert finances away from the state party organs.  

The sneakiness appears to be originating from the House, but sources tell me the Senate might be keen on the idea of diverting funds — especially if Woodhouse gets hired as the NCGOP executive director.  Like the elephant that symbolizes their party, Senate Republicans have long memories.

They remember this story — where Carolina Rising, the pro-McCrory PAC run by Woodhouse was doing polling in key senators’ districts and encouraging primary challenges to those senators.  The prospect of the party being run by someone who has been encouraging primary challenges to incumbents is apparently not sitting too well among GOP members in Jones Street’s upper chamber.  

I am told that many GOP senators could be persuaded to vote FOR the legislation allowing for “affiliated party committees.”  Especially if the NCGOP decides this weekend to hire Woodhouse.

  1. Woodhouse’s record in promoting primaries against conservatives, and particularly conservative incumbents is right up Dee Stewart’s street. Stewart seems to do that quite a bit. And Stewart already has one of his clones sitting as NCGOP Political Director. Stewart’s paymasters in the green energy cabal must love that.

    If the Central Committee plays these games, I would not be surprised to see a move at the Executive Committee to amend the budget to whack some salaries.

    Woodhouse clearly sticks his finger in the air on who and what to support, and is not someone we need at headquarters. So many credible names have been floating around in the rumor mill like Glen Downs and Francis deLuca, why would the Central Committee ever go with a political rent boy for the sleazy consultants like Woodhouse?

  2. The house bill will secure our 72 delegates to the National convention. However it will allow the Senate and house to set up their own caucus away from the NCGOP. Only real benefit to this it prevents the NCGOP from trying to take the money. I wish it wasn’t a worry but I understand the concern.
