1 big reason to vote for “establishment” Republicans for Senate in November
Judges. Yep, judges. Many posters on here – and people who I run into in person – have expressed disappointment that more rah-rah conservatives have not been able to carry the day in the GOP Senate primaries in places like Kentucky, Georgia, Oregon, and my home state of North Carolina. I agree. I would love more senators of the Cruz-Lee-Paul brand. However, a number of | Read More »

North Carolinians: Vote in the “Nonpartisan” Supreme Court Primary Today!
In North Carolina, all judges – local and statewide – are elected in “nonpartisan” elections. If 3 or more candidates file to run for a statewide judicial seat, they all run in a “nonpartisan” primary, and the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, move on to face off in the November general election. All NC registered voters, regardless of party, may vote in the | Read More »
Is it DOOM for Democrats in North Carolina?
Yes, if the turnout for early voting in NC’s May 6 primary is any indication. The top-of-the-ticket primary race in the Tar Heel state this year is the US Senate race. Incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan is facing only token primary opposition. On the Republican side, eight – count ‘em, eight – candidates are slugging it out to take on Hagan. The last time North Carolina | Read More »

In NC, the Governor giveth and the Governor taketh away
OK, so NC Governor Pat McCrory (R, allegedly) signs bills for Voter ID and restrictions on abortion clinics, but vetoes a bill requiring drug testing for welfare recipients? He claimed the bill was, among other things, “unfair” and did not help “fight drug addiction.” Ummm, Guv, the bill was not about fighting drug addiction, but about keeping our tax dollars from being used to buy | Read More »

Attention NC Voters: Remember the judges!
In NC this year, amid all the attention given to Romney-v-Obama, McCrory-v-Dalton, and a slew of legislative and Council of State races, are 4 races at the bottom of the ballot which could have more of an impact on North Carolina for the next 10 years than all the other races combined: the races for NC’s appellate judgeships. Conservatives in NC who care about following | Read More »

NC State Court Judges are Critical in Redistricting Lawsuit
In 2011, North Carolina’s first GOP-led legislature since Reconstruction produced redistricting maps that significantly favor conservative candidates for the US House and both houses of the state legislature. Unbelievably, Eric Holder’s “Justice” Department actually pre-cleared the maps, which means they may survive a federal court challenge. However, liberal special interest groups like the “Southern Coalition for Social Justice,” whatever that means, have challenged the redistricting maps in | Read More »
