    Elizabeth Warren is exactly the person to whom voters in NC listen.

    Warren’s opposition to guns will result in NC being red to a greater degree.

    I, for one, believe Elizabeth Warren is the most effective politician in the country. It’s sad to see people so blinded by partisan hatred that they can’t recognize an honest women working to represent people instead of corporate interests.

    Frances would have everyone believe that NC Citizens are not only sheep, but stupid ones at that…Real North Carolinians are opposed to the clown show in Raleigh and their pay to play back alley politics.

    Hopefully this dude will continue to be the face of the NCdP. That will be the next best thing for Republicans after getting to draw their own districts.
