    It’s time for Patrick McHenry to go. His arrogant support for John Boehnner over the years – even up until then end – torpedoed his credibility as a conservative once and for all. Obama has gotten everything he’s wanted these past eight years and that’s largely because he’s had a GOP Congress who have given him everything he’s demanded. McHenry, along with Boehnner and now Paul Ryan, is at the top of Obama’s enablers list. It’s time for him to leave Washington and get a real job. Albert Wiley Jr. has an impressive resume and his answers here in this survey impress as well. I hope GOP voters in the 10th will vote for him instead.

    Morgan or Faites for N.C. Supreme Court Associate Justice. I would side with Morgan to defeat the GOP alternative, Edmunds.

    Once again the NC GOP placed justice at risk in our state. Of course there was GOP skullduggery involved in protecting Edmunds.

    The good guys have be supported to set the bar higher. If you do not vote for Morgan or Faites, all the votes for Edmunds will of course add up to still more defeats for North Carolina justice.

    If you are NC 10, please vote for the N.C. Supreme Court Associate Justice slot even though Millard has no challenger. The NC Supreme Court is at stake so hopefully MX will add more detail as per these Indy Week and N&O stories.
