Constitution Party closing in on NC ballot access

The Democrats and Republicans held a monopoly for so long on our state’s ballots.  The Libertarians got on.  The Green Party — much to Dallas Woodhouse’s delight — just got on. Now, The Constitution Party — billed as an alternative for conservatives disgusted with the…

Folwell weeds out some freeloaders

Our rookie state treasurer has really turned into one of the few conservative bright spots in Raleigh. The work he’s done since January 2017 makes you wonder what Janet Cowell and those other Democrats who preceded him were doing: More than 600 people were just…

Elections have consequences. Josh Stein is a BIG FAT ONE.

We heard a lot of boo-hooing last year from the state Department of Justice about “budget cuts” by the legislature.  North Carolina would be less safe, we were told.  The people’s business won’t get done, we were told. Far-left wacko legislator Josh Stein  knocked off…

NC-03: Dacey’s own #’s show a loss to Jones AND somebody named UNDECIDED.

There is an interesting strategy being put forth by NCGOPe types this cycle.  Put a lot of bad news out there, and demand MO’ MONEY. We saw Matt Bales with the NC House GOP caucus doing it.   Now here comes Indian casino lobbyist (and GOP…

#NC-08: Moore County’s McNeill to take on Hudson

Moore County Democrats — a rather hapless, hopeless bunch over the years — are showing some life for the 2018 cycle. They’ve fielded a candidate for sheriff, for state representative, and now US Congress: Frank McNeill has won elections before – three terms on the Aberdeen…

#NC-03: The LONG arm of the Law?

Oh, The Third Congressional District’s GOP primary is living up to its reputation for soap-opera and drama.  DC lobbyist (and Craven County commissioner) Scott Dacey is already in as a challenger to incumbent Walter Jones. State Senator Harry Brown, the #2 guy in the upper…

UNC-C(ommunism)

I didn’t think it was possible, but the folks who brought you “Sex Week” have outdone themselves: Last year, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte made an announcement to great fanfare: The university would soon open a branch of the Confucius Institute, the Chinese…

#ncgop: “Dude, where’s my web site?”

The lefties are going nuts on social media. They are savaging the NCGOP for allegedly ruining public education.  They are savaging the GOP majority on Jones Street over redistricting.  They are ripping a federal judge nominee from North Carolina a new one. And, yet, it…

#ncga: Harry Brown for Congress ???

That’s the word on the street (at least the streets in the Third Congressional District).  I’ve heard from a number of movers and shakers in the 3rd district NCGOP who tell me they’ve heard from the North Carolina Senate Majority Leader and folks close to…
