One Response to March 15th NC Primary Results (State Level)

    Goes to show how money determines who wins in most cases. The people who are close to education, for example, wanted Rosemary Stein. She was the solid candidate and the guy who won was really and almost literally a weasel with money. He treats his wife horribly (we saw it), he lies and he’s a plant from special interests. But, he had money backers who helped get the word out. The robotic replies from his supporters were just quotes from his mailers. They couldn’t use anything else to argue why he was superior. Sounds like Bernie voters to me. He’s been supported to assure that the one threat to the ideology of June Atkinson is eliminated. We’re still fans of Rosemary Stein. Read her book: http://amzn.com/0692635785 You’ll see where NC chose the inferior product.
