About That Wake Cty District Attorney Race…

For those of you paying attention to the primary shenanigans going on in North Carolina this year, the quality Democrat candidates I’ve covered and the series I’ve been doing on various judicial races, this item will fit right in. I briefly touched on this race, but had not really dug into it properly.  So, here’s some digging in.

It’s been called to my attention that one of the candidates for Wake County District Attorney who is registered as a Republican has a history of supporting Democrats. Jeff Cruden has voted Democrat in no less than 6 primary elections.  Via NC Board of Elections:

Election Voted Method Voted County Voted Party
10/08/2013 MUNICIPAL IN-PERSON WAKE
11/06/2012 GENERAL IN-PERSON WAKE
05/08/2012 PRIMARY IN-PERSON WAKE DEMOCRATIC
11/02/2010 GENERAL ABS-1STOP WAKE
06/22/2010 SECOND PRIMARY IN-PERSON WAKE DEMOCRATIC
05/04/2010 PRIMARY IN-PERSON WAKE DEMOCRATIC
11/04/2008 GENERAL IN-PERSON WAKE
05/06/2008 PRIMARY IN-PERSON WAKE DEMOCRATIC
11/07/2006 GENERAL IN-PERSON WAKE
05/02/2006 PRIMARY IN-PERSON WAKE DEMOCRATIC
11/02/2004 GENERAL IN-PERSON WAKE
07/20/2004 PRIMARY PROV WAKE DEMOCRATIC

 

Cruden is promoting himself as having more experience than Jefferson Griffin, but is he talking about experience in the law or in voting Democrat?

Caveat Emptor, Wake County voters.

UPDATE:  Apparently, Cruden isn’t alone. See below. Ouch.

 Wake County District Attorney: John Bryant Running as a Republican

I met with a John Bryant today. John Bryant has run for office three times in Wake County, first as a Democrat, and lost the other two times. That is not a good track record as a Republican. He’s entered the race as a Republican candidate for District Attorney. I haven’t met a single a Republican supporter of Bryant.
