One more thumb's-down before early voting begins:

As I've mentioned before, we have to teach them a lesson. Don't screw around with the Constitution for partisan political purposes.
If you have someone telling you to vote against this amendment/Victims Rights, you should question why you are listening to them. Somethings should not be partisan and Victims Rights is one of them! #ncpol https://t.co/DuGVbVe0Rt

Dude, you're even less relevant than you were, and that was pretty dang irrelevant. Just quit while you're behind. You remind me of the Vichy French, but at least they were granted a little power and prestige by the Nazis. You got absolutely nothing from your Republican "friends," except a quick shuffle into obscurity.

Welp, that amendment's going down, anyway. But I still can't bring myself to thank the Koch Brothers...
Despite my opponent's claims, he has repeatedly voted to take away coverage for pre-existing conditions. Only now that it's politically expedient is he saying he supports these protections.
Watch what they do, not what they say.
Vote Ryan Watts. #ncpolhttps://t.co/L60SdIkUqC

Not to sound like a broken record, but Walker also voted to cut $537 Billion from Medicare. Voters need to know this.
As drug overdose deaths mount, there's been a national crackdown on opioid prescribing.
But has the pendulum swung too far?

Yeah, I was afraid this was going to happen. It's one (big) reason they need to fast-track cannabis-related pain meds, which appear to be the only viable alternative to opiates or their synthetic cousins.

Guess what, dingus? When you allow corporate money to continually stifle the voices of regular citizens, they eventually get mad. If you want to identify the origin of such extreme rhetoric, look in a damn mirror.

Oh, god. Haven't those people been tortured enough?
Section 5.10 of the Hurricane Florence Disaster Recovery Act forgives overpayments to @NCNationalGuard members during Hurricane Matthew and reimburses service members who have repaid the state. This was an important issue raised by the military community. #ncpol #ncga pic.twitter.com/zSm1dWGlbL

If I'm reading this correctly, it means that two years ago we made NG troops pay back money they had earned while performing emergency services, and we're just now paying them back for that screw-up? Or I should say, we're just now "promising" to pay them back. Grrr. *update* I did not read that correctly. These "overpayments" showed up on an audit, and had not been recovered yet from these soldiers. Unless I didn't read this new thing correctly...

Lol, I know right? It seems like the Primary was last year or something...

It takes a seriously impaired mind to believe these things are simply constructs to gather more votes. I would not be surprised to find out this particular guy is also a flat-Earther.
I’ve read our House rules and much of Mason’s Manual of Legislative Procdure. As far as I’m aware, neither supports a point of order for what is, essentially, “you said something I didn’t agree with”. #ncpol

It's one of the only drawbacks to having a military background before becoming a lawmaker: It really highlights what a clusterf**k government can be when unqualified people get elected.
On that sardonic note, here's your Onion:
