Wayne King headed to Congress?

ncgopSources within the staff of Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC-11) are confirming that NCGOP vice-chairman Wayne King has been hired onto the congressman’s staff as a “senior adviser.”   Word is also circulating among state GOP politicos that King will not seek re-election to the state party’s vice-chairman post.

These reports throw a monkey-wrench into earlier indications that King would challenge incumbent state party chairman Robin Hayes’s bid for reelection this summer.  King has been a controversial figure in state Republican politics.  He’s been the subject of numerous accusations by grassroots activists of violating party rules and meddling in GOP primaries.

With an open vice-chairman position, and incumbent chairman Robin Hayes not yet publicly committed to running for re-election, we could be in for a rather interesting state GOP convention this summer.

  1. We do not need either Hayes or King. They both represent what is broken in the party. We need new grassroots oriented leadership.
