Give me less of Moore

Give him credit. Tim Moore knows how to use social media, or at least one of the folks on his team is doing a great job. We should expect as much given the lucrative salaries associated with working for the Speaker of the House, whose office alone accounts for more...

Talking with Rep. Reives

Above is my conversation with Rep. Robert Reives. He serves the 54th District in the NC House, covering Chatham and Durham counties. He's also the Deputy Democratic Leader in the House. Correction: In one instance I referred to a company as Autozone, when in fact it...

Mangrum vs. Johnson?

It’s Time for a New Election

At this point, unless your name is Mark Harris, you probably doubt the integrity of the congressional election in North Carolina’s Ninth District. In what was drawn to be a reliably safe Republican district — which Republicans have held since 1963 — Baptist minister...
