What the GOP wanted all along:
Families making $70k+ do not need a voucher of public money to send their child/ren to private school. Median income in NC is about $51k. Vouchers were supposed to be for low-income families. Do you want to pay to send others’ kids to private school when they make $70k? #ncpol

Duke Energy's CEO serves as the chairperson for the Edison Electric Institute, which recently paid for Facebook ads backing legislation that would allow the utility to raise electric bills in #NC with less oversight #ncpol pic.twitter.com/3o6elggnZo

After following the behavior of astroturf organizations over the last ten years, this comes as absolutely no surprise to me. Just one more nail in the coffin of Duke Energy's integrity.

Good! We need to make sure whoever takes that job can recognize a lying sack of shit when she sees it.

I'm sure you are. But whatever Brooks Pierce bills for your services will be too much, by far.

I have mixed feelings about McGrady, especially after he failed to stop the Wind Energy moratorium. But I have a feeling we will be missing him soon after his replacement takes that seat...
Gov. Bob Scott kept a diary of a tumultuous time in #ncpol in the late '60s/early '70s. @oldpolhack was the first to read it as he researched his new book on NC's political dynasty: https://t.co/Q8UEsC7Qrz

Advice I can definitely live without:
Some of the lessons for the Democrats is that Kerr Scott lived all his life on a dairy farm, and every weekend, he went back — even as governor. And so he was always very close to his constituents. He was a big hunter, he was very religious. He often talked about things in kind of a religious way. So he could push forward his progressive program in a way that was culturally acceptable to people who are more conservative, because he understood people, and he also understood their needs.
As a native of Alamance County, I can safely say the legacy of the Scott family did not produce much in the way of "progressive" change here. I get that it was a different time, I'm just not sure Rob understands that.
I support a parent’s right to select the education best for his/her child. Every child has different needs. Unfortunately, many want to jam all children into the same (failing) school system. Why are certain groups always against choice/freedom? #schoolChoice #NCPOL https://t.co/HWYx2fRDqD

Our public school system is not "failing," but every dollar that's stripped away for private and for-profit charter schools merely pushes those schools in that direction. Why do certain groups always ignore that fact?

Honestly, with all the people suffering under GOP tyranny, I find it (very) hard to give a shit about "liberating" liquor.

Strangely enough, that was exactly what I thought when you and your brethren held special sessions to strip away Governor Cooper's Executive powers after he beat McCrory. I wonder if those two things might be related...
The Pence-Tillis event next week in Greensboro is a Trump Victory fundraising event — and a sign of support from administration for Tillis, who is facing a GOP primary challenge in #2020. #ncpol https://t.co/yxUzuBx0mY

Maybe they didn't put you on TV because spouting nonsense about communism is more of a mental condition than a political stance? Just spitballing here...
