#ncga: Raleigh special interests betting BIG on McInnis

They’ve backed driver licenses for illegals, tax increases, corporate welfare giveaways, the repeal of HB2, and Common Core.  Now, The NC Chamber is giving its blessing and endorsement to the renomination and reelection of state senator Tom McInnis (R-Richmond).  

McInnis is locked in a heated primary fight with Michelle Lexo, the mayor of the Moore County village of Whispering Pines, in the newly-reconfigured state senate district 25.

The Chamber mailers hit Moore County mailboxes today.  (There was also a another mailer from The North Carolina Republican Senatorial Committee — the “affiliated committee” financed primarily by cash shaken down from lobbyists by Phil Berger and his crew.)

Interestingly —  today’s Chamber mailer featured the SAME notorious hard-hat photo from the first NCRSC mailer.  (Um — collusion, anyone?) 

Michelle Lexo has given no hint that she would be a problem for the business community in North Carolina.  In fact, it’s just the opposite.

THIS — in the case of both the Berger /  senatorial committee and Chamber mailings  — is about keeping an entity they know and can control in place in Raleigh.
