Trump for Senate? (In NC?)
That’s what a poll for our reportedly vacant US Senate seat in 2022 suggests:
McCrory’s inclusion is the Meck Mafia’s way of getting another of their own into the Hill’s upper chamber. They already have Tillis. Conservatives ought to remember how McCrory’s one gubernatorial term went and think about whether they want the same ol’ stuff in DC for SIX YEARS.
I’d consider Lara Trump. From what I’ve seen of her, she seems like a nice person. (She certainly outshines EVERYONE in that poll.) She gave some great speeches in defense of her father-in-law. But I worry about a repeat of the Elizabeth Dole debacle. I think — if Mrs. Trump is serious about this race — she and her husband should establish residency within our borders. Get to know the place.
I also believe we need to hear more about where SHE stands on the issues. It’s not safe to assume that everyone in a family agrees on politics and the issues.
And — TWO percent ???? (*Poor, poor Timmy.*)

NOT voting McCrory, Walker, Nikki Haley…..NONE of these will get a vote for any race, period. Pat again? Really? Walker? Haley; the Establishment, Swamp darling…..NOPE.
Hopefully Meadows will come into the race assuming he is not in the Trump administration at that point.
She hasn’t lived here in years. We don’t need a carpetbagging New York resident moving into the state for a couple years so she can run for office. And how about someone with a consistent conservative record. What about Forest or possibly Meadows?
Typical for how GOP decides who WE need. Already throwing out McCrory, Haley. NO! Why Trump had so much force against him and still does. He wasn’t the Establishment candidate, like McCain, Romney, Dole. Hadn’t been selected to be THE ONE.
Tillis is history for me…
I’m luke-warm about her, mainly because I don’t know the person behind the name and what her values are. But the poll does confirm that her greatest strength is that she’s not any of those other pathetic contenders.
A few additional thoughts about them….
McCrory…..if it were possible to legally throw someone out of the Party, he’d be the top candidate other than Tillis.
Walker……poor, poor judgment and political instincts. He apparently forgot an important lesson from his predecessor Howard Coble….never lose touch with the folks back home.
Holding…..You think Burr is out of touch with people back home? That’s Holding on steroids. His main goal in D.C. has been to further Anglo-American relations towards the goal of winning a knighthood. Give Ol’ George a six year term instead of two, and you’ll never hear from him again.
Spot on…for each of those mentioned. Lots of wisdom penned.
Any way to recall Tillis, cut our losses?
Any way to pressure NCGA, keep us closed, you don’t draw salary & benefits? Shut down NCGA & stop pay! I think it’s time for action. Many more of US than them. And call me cynical, I see no work, action being done for We The People.
National GOP sat on their collective ****** and allowed Dems to steal an election & Ga is final nail in coffin for this Republic. I BLAME the GOP 100%. To be a Republican is to sit down, shut up & be lead to the cliff!
That Mrs. Trump, who hadn’t lived here in years, is the front-runner, speaks volumes about her family’s popularity and voters’ continued rejection of establishment candidates. How about Greg Brannon?
Lara Trump has appeal for two reasons. One is her connection to her father in law and the other is nobody else in the field has any appeal to the party base.
Walker and Holding thumbed their nose at voters back home, and voters have had enough of that from Burr and Tillis. McCrory ignored his own base during his term as governor and that was a big reason why he was one and done. Tim Moore has been the same sort of weasel in the legislature that Tillis was.
The party does not need or want another Tillis. One is too many. Meadows would once have been a shoe in but his scheming on anointing a successor in his House seat did not play well and would take some recovery from.
If Lara Trump is serious, you offer great advise in moving back to NC ,and then getting out and letting people see who she really is.
I’m disappointed, I thought North Carolinians learned their lesson after Senator Elizabeth Dole’s fiasco!
Trump doesn’t live here, and hasn’t lived here for some time. McCrory was a loser from the beginning because he has all the answers and wouldn’t listen to his own hand-picked “advisors”; Burr and Tillis are establishment players with little conservative credentials; Walker left us already; and Tim Moore would be “Moore of the same”!
One issuet that both the GOP and Dems face in North Carolina is that none of them have much of a « farm team », so options for federal office candidates are usually depressingly limited, and the few that I respect like your colleague Larry Pittman, face tough sledding just getting past their own party’s opposition.
