A Republican Sounds a Cautionary Note: Rep. John Blust

From Mark Binker’s story in the News and Record this morning:

“It would be at least a chance for us,” said Rep. John Blust, a Greensboro Republican who has frequently complained his proposals were ignored by Democratic majorities. Blust, who won his re-election bid over a Libertarian candidate, added that Republicans shouldn’t read too much into their likely victories.

“Hopefully, we will be warned that we better do some things differently (from Democrats),” Blust said. He said the state results were more about voter frustration with Democrats in control of the government during a sour economy than a big shift in favor of Republican policies.
