The amount of spin by Chris Fitzsimon in this episode is worth watching. John Locke’s Becki Gray does a nice job redirecting some of his comments.
The idea that this election was a refutation by voters of Obama’s policies was undeniable.

North Carolina Midterm Election Roundup for 2014
North Carolina made history last night with a new high for midterm voter turn out.
Thom Tillis defeated Kay Hagan.
Renee Ellmers defeated Clay Aiken.
The General Assembly kept a super majority in both houses.
Wake County Commissioner races were won by all four Democrats running. Be afraid for your wallet, people. Don’t complain I didn’t warn you about these people when they start to hike your taxes.
Chief Justice Mark Martin defeated Judge Ola Lewis. Other Judicial races were not so good for Republicans.
See my Storify Article, North Carolina Races 2014 , for statistics on these key points.
A breakout of the Wake County Commissioners race will be coming. Stay tuned. Continue reading
A little under a year ago, Graig Meyer was appointed to the NC General Assembly for district 50.
Appointed. Not elected.
District 50 now has the opportunity to remove Meyer before he does any more damage. Check out his opponent, Rod Chaney.
Since that appointment, he’s seemingly pushed nothing but far Left liberal ideas and towed his party’s line. His escapades include supporting the fundamentally flawed and experimental Common Core standards. Meyer claims to oppose over-testing, yet Common Core is jam-packed with that. The guy is clueless.
I watched Meyer spout debunked pro-core talking point after talking point at an NCGA Common Core legislative research committee meeting this past Spring. He ignored the pleas of the parents who came to speak out and instead, championed a set of copyrighted standards and the unaccountable D.C. trade groups who own them.
Dear Rep. Meyer – 40 of the 60 ppl who testified at LRC OPPOSED the standards. #Politicizing #hb1061 #stopcommoncore #ncga

Not surprising, since Mr. Meyer only represents like-minded people and likes to play politics with our kids. Check out this rather hateful tweet. Does Mr. Meyer realize his attempt to smear opposition includes parents, teachers and students from ALL walks of life? Apparently not:

This email from Al McSurely is very close to electioneering for a particular candidate, which a non-profit like the NC NAACP is barred from doing. As an attorney, McSurely should know this.
Scroll down to the bottom. I’ve got a bit of commentary to add.
