A Test of Your Power and Influence
RedState Readers, there was a time when we could ask you to open your wallets for solid candidates and within hours goals would be met. We did that recently with Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia and you showed just how quickly you could raise money. But people still think you guys are not as engaged as you once were. So I have a challenge for you | Read More »
The ruling class war against voter ID
It’s funny how majority support is supposed to be decisive for some issues, but completely irrelevant for others. Voter ID laws are enormously popular with the general public, routinely scoring 70 to 80 percent approval. That stacks up pretty well against the most popular gun-control measures you could name. But the political class and its media allies will never portray voter ID as an urgent | Read More »
Greg Brannon at the RedState Gathering,
Honestly, as we were winding up our agenda for RedState, several people told me I needed to squeeze in Dr. Greg Brannon from North Carolina. I had no idea who he was. WOW! I’m so glad I did. I’m so committed to helping Greg now. His speech was amazing at the RedState Gathering. This guy gets it. Listen to him. Video streaming by Ustream LINK
Robert Pittenger (@RepPittenger) Will Fund Obamacare
Congressman Robert Pittenger knows better than his constituents. They want him to defund Obamacare. But he is going to fund it. He won’t even try to fight. His votes against Obamacare have been symbolic, but when faced with an opportunity to truly undermine it, he will pass. As Mike Lee and Ted Cruz repeatedly say, you can’t really claim to be opposed to Obamacare if | Read More »
Gov. Pat McCrory (R, North Carolina) shuts down pro-abortion protest! …by giving them cookies.
That was not a typo. Or euphemism. (Photo by Irene Godinez) Gov. Pat McCrory hasn’t been willing to meet with the women (and a few men) protesting an abortion bill that opponents say restricts access to safe abortions. But he did stop by this afternoon with a plate of chocolate chip cookies. McCrory was flanked by four security guards as he came out of the | Read More »
.@SenatorBurr Thinks You’re Dumb. Call Him at (202) 224-3154 & Tell Him Defunding Obamacare is Smart
Do you think the GOP should hold the line on Obamacare? Do you think the GOP should tell the Democrats no continuing resolution will contain funding for Obamacare? If you do, Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina thinks you are dumb. Senator Mike Lee’s strategy on Obamacare is very simple. Don’t let the implementation begin. He has gotten a number of senators to sign a | Read More »
NC Unemployment Cuts: A Necessary & Difficult Change
Yesterday, North Carolina became the first state in the country to forfeit federal long-term unemployment benefits. As her state budgets continued to balloon and unemployment remains uncomfortably high, the Republican controlled legislature ended the state’s war on prudent fiscal policy by exempting herself from receiving further federal assistance for people unemployed longer than 26 weeks, as well as lowering the maximum potential benefit. If you | Read More »
NC House Speaker Thom Tillis to Announce Run for Senate
Sources in Raleigh are confirming that NC House Speaker Thom Tillis will be announcing a bid for the United States Senate some time tomorrow.

NC NAACP President Compares Republicans to George Wallace (A Democrat)
On yesterday’s edition of “All In with Chris Hayes” we were greeted with narrative creation at its finest as host Chris Hayes attempted to define the arguments in favor of Voter Identification laws in North Carolina as merely the spoils of victory as opposed to any type of actual reasoned position. HAYES: If a skeptical person looks at what’s going on in north carolina and | Read More »

Obama’s Hubris Will be His Undoing
Barack Obama has lost North Carolina and Florida. His ground game is at near parity in early voting with the GOP, the GOP is more energized, and he is going to lose both. But he will not stop spending money in those two states and redirect the resources to Ohio, which is now a must win state for him. He will not do it because | Read More »
Some helpful reminders to progressive protesters at Charlotte.
I thought that I’d be useful and walk the slave’s flatteries and child’s imitations that are the modern Left protest movement through what’s expected of them this week at the Democratic convention in Charlotte, as well as what their betters will tolerate from said protesters. I know, I know: some of the folks on my side feel that one should not give those people any | Read More »
Romney leads in North Carolina as Democrat convention begins
As the delegates to the Democrat Convention gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, they are greeted with a discouraging headline in the Charlotte Observer, “As DNC begins, Romney Gains in N.C.”
The headline is a reference to the new Elon University/Charlotte Observer Poll shows the GOP presidential candidate leading President Barack Obama 47 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in North Carolina.
The poll found the women vote almost evenly split on their support 45 percent for Obama 44 percent Romney. So much for the gender gap.
