Rumor has it – Jerry Butler

November 13, 2008

Rumor has it – that Jerry Butler attended a republican party meeting in Alexander County yesterday.  The Boone dentist announced that he was planning on returning to the political fray to run against state Senator Steve Goss again in 2010.   According to our sources Butler made an anthem of a speech to the local republicans asking them to expel “fringe” conservatives from the party and move in a more progressive direction.

Since this is a rumor and we don’t know if its true, someone please tell us it isn’t so!  This mindset is exactly what lost Republicans the election.  Moderate Congressman in the Midwest lost overwhelmingly to their democrat rivals, and where Conservatism was truly on the ballot it was victory!  If Dr. Butler wants to be a progressive, maybe he should run against Goss in the primary.  Either way we think this helps Goss raise money.

Let the debates begin!

Wow! – Fifth District Meeting.

September 29, 2008

Republicans this year seem to be more energized than ever. This years Fifth Congressional Republican meeting was no different. More than 60 people filled the back room at Shatley Springs in Ashe County on Saturday morning. Owner and former Ashe GOP Chairman Lee McMillan had to add extra seating at tables in an adjacent room. Most candidates were out on the campaign trail, excepting two. Congresswoman Virginia Foxx remained in Washington to work on the bailout issue and NC Senate hopeful Jerry Butler.
