Republican-voting voters from Fayetteville to Charlotte will vote May 14 for a Republican nominee. Boatloads of cash are coming into the special 9th Congressional District election, according to government records and news accounts. The McCready campaign also has a $250,000 debt leftover from the 2018 race, when McCready lent it the money. Leigh Brown Republican Leigh Brown had $38,880 in receipts and just over $1,200 in disbursements as of March 31. The Charlotte Observer reported the PAC is making a $1.3 million television ad buy for Brown. Through March 31 Bishop had spent $6,300. Stony Rushing Republican Union County Commissioner Stony Rushing had $36,300 in donations and about $15,740 in spending. She had $2,500 in spending. The deadline to register to vote on May 14 is Monday. Keynote speaker: Candidate Dan McCready.

INSIDE POLITICS: Most in NC want a new political party

Linda Hopkins (in hat), Gerard Falls and Kathleen Henry protest for Democratic congressional candidate Dan McCready outside a 9th District forum for Republican candidates on McPherson Church Road in Fayetteville on Monday, April 8, 2019. The latest Meredith College Poll says 56.7 percent of registered voters surveyed agree with this statement: “The two parties do not do an adequate job of representing Americans and a third party is needed.” More details: 56.3 percent of Democrats, 51.3 percent of Republicans and 67.1 percent of unaffiliated voters agree with that. The survey appears to mirror North Carolina voter registration preferences in that second-largest and fastest-growing group of voters in North Carolina are the unaffiliated voters. Those percentages are 37.3 percent, 30.2 percent and 32 percent. Combined, those three parties total less than 1 percent of all voters. 9th District election bits Three protesters appeared at this past Monday’s candidate forum in Fayetteville for the 9th District Republican primary in support of Democratic candidate Dan McCready. Anglin could have tried to gate-crash, but an advisor told The Fayetteville Observer that Anglin isn’t going impose himself on events if he’s not invited. Instead, on April 10, Anglin sent a letter to the acting Republican Party chairperson demanding access to events and materials just as all the other GOP candidates. In a letter to Bishop, which Rushing copied to Facebook, Rushing said the NRA limits use of its logo to official NRA communications. As of Saturday, the NRA’s Political Victory Fund website says it has made no endorsements in 9th District election.

Our Political Fights Are Bad Because We Don’t Agree on the Rules

Our Political Fights Are Intense Because We No Longer Agree on the Rules Matthew Walther, writing about Julian Assange in The Week, lists how many Democrats and Republicans changed their minds about Assange depending upon whose secrets he was exposing and concludes: [if Assange exposes Trump’s secrets], we can expect to see both sides revert once more to their circa 2010 defaults. One of the reasons our politics is so contentious and angry is that we can’t agree on what the rules are. But a vocal chunk of Americans don’t really care about what the policies are; they would much rather argue that their side is right. For many people, it depends upon the partisan status of the person accused. For many Americans, when the side they like uses heated rhetoric, it’s speaking truth to power. Is the desire to make more money inherently greedy? For years, the mantra of Bernie Sanders was that the wealthy were driven by an intensely selfish desire: “How many yachts do billionaires need? Boy, Joe Biden’s efforts in the fight about forced busing and desegregation sure are getting a lot of attention these days, aren’t they? At the time, the motivation for spotlighting the teens was clear: to disagree with their often-heated and sometimes factually wrong assertions about gun violence amounted to “attacking children” in the eyes of their pro-gun control allies. Say, who’s the president married to again?
