U.S. House 13th District

Manning vs. Budd: NC's 13th shaping up to be an epic battle

And Ted Budd better pack more than a lunch:

It looks as though politically attuned residents of the 13th Congressional District might be getting something this year that hasn’t been seen in these parts for quite a while. The novelty? A highly competitive, evenly matched contest for North Carolina’s 13th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, one that could keep pollsters and political operatives on the edge of their chairs till the last vote is tabulated Nov. 6.

The rising tide of interest in the clash between freshman incumbent U.S. Rep. Ted Budd (R-Advance) and Democratic challenger Kathy Manning of Greensboro also extends to the national level, where activist groups across the political spectrum see it as one of about 30 races pivotal for the Republican Party’s chances of retaining its House majority against what some prognosticators view as a looming “blue wave” favoring Democrats.

Just a historical note: The only reason Ted Budd ended up in Washington in the first place was because the Club For Growth saw an opportunity to take advantage of a crowded GOP Primary, and poured money in so Budd could squeak by with a measly 20% of the vote. This race is going to garner national attention all the way through to November, and it's likely to get very ugly before it's over:

Vermin's partner-Straight from the NC Bar website-Love it.

The law license of Nathaniel K. pendley , who practices in Forsyth County, was suspended for two years and the suspension was stayed for two years pursuant to a DHC order entered after trial on November 18, 2005. The commission found that pendley did not timely file responses to a State Bar letter of notice and notice of fee dispute petition and that he failed to promptly return a client's file. pendley must obtain an examination by an approved psychiatrist within three months and follow whatever treatment recommendations are made.

Fox News

I received an emergency call tonight to quickly turn on Fox News. We never watch that channel, but they had received a call from out of state. Can you believe that they actually bashed Vermin's latest ad on Fox News. This has to be a first. They even pointed out the fact that Brad Miller didn't vote against body armor for the soldiers. He didn't vote at all. He was on his way to Iraq.

I saw this on the internet last night under "Brad Miller News". Now about three different people have entered it there. I watched it one time and almost got sick. I don't need to watch it again. It is all over the net now. This has to be the most vile ad I have ever seen. I can't believe that cable would even air it.
