#ncpol: The March of the RINOs

#ncpol NC-09: A new primary ??? (Why????)

We’ve already addressed our dumbfounded amazement and disappointment that the NCGOPe is rolling over and playing dead over this blatant attempt by Leftists to steal the 9th congressional district. Mark Harris WON a primary.  It got certified. Mark Harris won a general election. His opponent…

#ncpol: Two down, a zillion to go. WHAT we’ve learned so far.

Everyone — and I mean everyone — is trying to read the political tea leaves in the wake of the Iowa and New Hampshire votes.  On the Democrat side, we’re being told Hillary is reeling.  On the Republican side, we’re being told outsiders and anti-establishment…

The next chapter

There is a lot of anger and resentment bubbling out there as a result of the heavy-handedness at Saturday’s NCGOP meetings. Most reasonable observers see it putting the party in a precarious position just months before a big election. So, Dallas Woodhouse – incredibly —…

#nc-02: A SEVEN-WAY GOP primary?

Well, the Second District GOP primary race for 2016 is getting to be quite a crowded affair.  We’ve all known incumbent Renee Ellmers was running for reelection.  We’ve known about challengers Jim Duncan, Kay Daly and Frank Roche. Second District GOP heavy-hitters are telling me…

Tennessee Democrats get a surprise in their US Senate primary

A man espousing conservative and libertarian views convincingly wins Tennessee’s Democrat US Senate primary,  and state Democrats are ready to go to court to invalidate the voters’ choice. The reason?  State Dems say nominee Mark Clayton belongs to a “hate group.”  Which one?  The Klan?…
