The NC Dems sure are on a quality candidate campaign these days. From The guy who couldn’t win American Idol to Peter Griffin. The win is strong with the NC Dems.
Here’s yet another example as they attempt to fill the seat of recently deceased Senator Nesbitt.- what amounts to an open call ad in a local news outlet:

Feels like more of that special #branding. Hey, at least Buncombe’s HQ isn’t in jeopardy. Yet. Continue reading
Carolina Journal has an article up today about NC’s Read to Achieve law entitled Students Must Read To Achieve. The article gives some background on testing in NC and the Read To Achieve law, which I dug into not so … Continue reading
The movement that required you show ID to attend their rally opposing voter ID is planning yet another event. Will ID be required at this one too?

The announcement of a new Occupy Monday event earned 4 short paragraphs from the Associated Press via Blueridge Now:
RALEIGH, N.C. — A caravan of people urging the restoration of the Voting Rights Act will join North Carolina activists in Raleigh in a protest. Continue reading
There’s a survey floating around out there from UNCW on education. Some folks can barely contain their glee at a survey that so conveniently fits the BlueprintNC/Moral Monday style narrative they and their cohorts have been touting for a while now. Local media of course endorsed it.
While NC Policy Watch’s Wagner is celebrating more BlueprintNC crippling and eviscerating, I say not so fast. This survey was already on my radar and a few other’s, who have noted some big problems with it:
FYI… 60+% of them had public school employment history MT @kennycmckee: UNCW asked parents about #NCGA & #NCED => http://t.co/XAiuaYz1wN

An Executive Council member who attended the meeting said embattled party Chairman Randy Voller told members the party is “broke,” with only $60,000 in the bank. – WRAL
Aw gee, the NC Dem Party is chaired by Randy Voller having money troubles? That’s a shocker. Democrats are probably glad WRAL’s article is mercifully short; but the blog Who The Hell Is George points out the article is also a little short on facts.
The NC Democrat party is indeed suffering. I can’t imagine their far Left push and association with Moral Monday is helping fundraising efforts in a state where Democrats traditionally have trended more centrist than Left. Chairman Voller’s attempt to bring the accused serial sexual harasser and general controversy stirring Ben Chavis on board to further promote that march to the Far Left didn’t help.
