#NCSEN: Two choices NOT NAMED Richard Burr

burrFormer judge Paul Wright, who has run unsuccessfully for governor and Congress, has announced he will be challenge incumbent Republican Richard Burr for renomination in 2016.  Now, we have another name to add to the list.  Greensboro businessman Larry Holmquist, also an activist with Conservatives for Guilford County (C4GC), is stepping up to the plate to take on his neighbor from Winston-Salem.

You can sit around and gripe about our incumbents and what’s happening in DC or Raleigh.  But, if there are no choices, that’s all moot.  You’ve got two choices in the GOP primary that are not named Burr.  Both men appear to be substantial, thoughtful conservatives.  Granted, they don’t have the multi-million dollar campaign accounts accrued from shaking down special interests.  

Burr has a 41 percent conservative rating from Heritage Action.  That puts him to the left of awful Lindsey Graham. 

If you’re happy with being lied to about overturning ObamaCare and halting amnesty, go ahead and vote to give Mr. Burr six more years in DC.  If you think it’s great that the Republican majority is continuing with the drunken-sailor cash management style the Democrats perfected, go ahead and send Mr. Burr back for six more.  If you think what happened in Mississippi to Chris McDaniel was FINE (Burr helped finance that), send him back for six more.

Find out what you can about Wright and Holmquist.  Give them a listen. Don’t dismiss them because their bank accounts are small.  Eric Cantor dismissed David Brat.

      I’m assuming you think that just because Mr. Burr has five to ten million in campaign funds, I’m wasting my time running against him. I beg to differ with you.

      If you were to ask 1,000 rock-solid NC conservatives (who typically do vote in primaries), I’ll bet you about 998 of them would say they’re disappointed (maybe even disgusted) by Mr. Burr’s questionable voting record and lack of leadership on any issue important to conservatives. He’s North Carolina’s “Invisible Man” in the U.S. Senate, and I think he needs to be made to answer for many of his moderate-to-liberal votes (especially the one paving the way for the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General). I intend to make sure the people of North Carolina get those answers.

      1. I’m not voting for Burr. His vote for cloture on a 2A issue is one of many reasons not to vote for him. He, Tillis and Ellmers are embarrassments to our state.

  1. God’s speed Mr. Holmquist. Don’t forget Burr’s vote in December 2010 to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, his vote earlier this year to extend Social Security and VA benefits to the homosexual lovers of beneficiaries, and his vote for ObamaTrade.

    1. As a former Army officer, Burr’s DADT vote was the kiss of death to me–and many others I know as well. Yes, he paved the way to the new pink swastika tranny armed services we see arising right now–replete with homo Secy. Army.

  2. For a Republican primary, Burr’s voting record is what the military would call a ”target rich environment”. That record needs to be targeted early and often.

    Another Burr classic is his support and glowing endorsement of the candidacy of the radical Obama judicial appointee who ultimately issued the order forcing homosexual marriage on North Carolina. That should be hammered hard.

    1. Not to mention “Blocking a government funding bill over ObamaCare is “the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard,”

  3. I will never “hold my nose” again — EVER. But, I can also tell you that I am voting on one issue and one issue only — immigration. The candidate who shows his/her brass knuckles on this issue and never wavers once will get my vote. I am voting for America this time.

    1. Hi Kim–

      I hope you will go to my website and read my position on immigration on the “Issues” page. It’s a national security crisis at this point. I’m afraid we’d all be shocked at the number of terrorists who have slipped in along with all the “illegals.” Thank you for your concern and diligence.

  4. In all honesty, due to family and church commitments, I have not been active with C4gc the last few years. (I was active with them in late 2011 and throughout 2012.) They’re an awesome group of hard-working conservatives making some very positive changes here in Greensboro and Guilford County, and I very much appreciate and applaud their efforts. I just didn’t want any of them to see the article and think I was trying–in any way–to claim credit for the great work they’re doing here. Thank you!

  5. I’m surprised Glen Webb hasn’t been mentioned as a dark horse. Good conservative and 2nd Amendment Crusader. He is a county commissioner and president of the commissioners association. Worth a look, but I don’t know how interested he would be in taking that on.
