The 13th District should have known better in the first place:
Overnight, North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District – which resembles a sloppily forged anvil covering most of Iredell County, all of Davie and Davidson counties, and parts of Rowan and Guilford counties – went from safely Republican to utterly uncertain for the Nov. 5 general election.
Of course, Republicans and GOP-friendly groups also will parachute into the race, checkbooks in hand, to bolster Budd’s counterattack. Early prognostications made the freshman Budd, a gun store owner and farmer from Advance, the odds-on favorite in District 13, where President Donald Trump pulled 53 percent of the vote in 2016 and Budd actually did better by picking up 56 percent.
And yes, I fully realize I just told you the other day we need to focus on Legislative races and not Congressional ones, but I kinda hate Ted Budd. If you don't, you're not paying attention:
As you'll notice towards the end, he almost slipped up and mentioned how they plan to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security Disability, etc., in order to pay for the tax scam they were working on. And by leaving that out, and just talking about the cuts that everybody there seemed so giddy over, he proved what an empty suit he really is.
