The above article is behind the N&O paywall, but here’s the main gist — or at least what N&O wants to be the main gist: Josh Stein.
Sen. Josh Stein has raised a lot of money. It’s no secret he want to run for Attorney General.
One of Stein’s big donors is Jim Goodmon (Capitol Broadcasting/WRAL). A BlueprintNC donor giving a ton of cash to Josh Stein? Gee, no way!
At any rate, expect Stein and his supporters to play dirty. Related: Project Veritas In NC Leads to Investigation by State Board Of Elections
Democrat Linda Coleman is going to try again for Lt. Governor.
Good luck with that, Lt. Governor Dan Forest is pretty popular and has done a good job – especially in the education arena.
She’s raised no money so far, so the question is will CCSSO President and NC State Superintendent June Atkinson run again? I called this a long while back with a big NO, she won’t — nor should she since she’s alrady the longest serving educrat in the country.
Likely Atkinson already has a nice six figure job lined up just like Bev Perdue when she high-tailed it out of office after leaving a mess and the state under crushing debt.
Prediction: Atkinson will attempt to anoint Democrat Rep. Tricia Cotham, as her heir apparent.
Great, a mini-me full of contempt for the public – especially parents.
I’m your huckleberry and she’s no daisy at all.

Meanwhile, Dr. Rosemary Stein has thrown her hat into the ring and has been traveling around the state. Stein’s message of opposing Common Core, empowering districts through increased local control and restoring the relationship between families and their children’s schools is resonating.
Also running is Henry Pankey of Durham; a former Principal turned motivational speaker.
