One of Western North Carolina’s keenest and, frequently, most biting political obervers is Jerry Williamson of the blog Watauga Watch.

“It took just three days for Pat McCrory to go from promising, young, forward-thinking Republican governor of North Carolina … to a bumbling cypher, ignored by his own Republican super-majority in the General Assembly and led into public blunders by operatives smarter than he.”
