Does Progress NC Have A Problem With Latinos? (Updates)


Pete Kaliner clarifies a few things said by this ‘Progress NC Staffer‘, who was clearly talking about the GOP’s Ricky Diaz.

The NC GOP has a written transcript of the insult by a Progress NC Staffer on the “Jeff Messer” show (below).

Jeff Messer (880AM-Asheville), Host: “You picked up a little touring buddy. You know like a road comedy if you will. I met him earlier because he came on Peter Kaliner’s show over there.  A republican operative I guess. Be careful out there folks – it may be deceptive because he is a Latino and a Republican. That may be tough for people to follow along with.” ProgressNC Action Staff: “Well if you read Jeb Bush’s voter registration so apparently is he.” (laughing)

NC GOP also has asked for an apology from Progress NC.
