And, how many times will we allow the national party establishment and Washington lobbies to hand-pick candidates during the primary "for us"? I am tired of the Washington meddling.
Well, they're at it again. We the People NC have written a great article exposing a candidate who suddenly appeared in NC Congressional District 8. Their article, "It Pays To Be a Former Staffer", exposes the origins, backers, and connections of this new candidate, Richard Hudson. It's a must read for the good voters of the 8th Congressional District!
But there's a bit more to the story. From what we have learned, Mr. Hudson, was assigned by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) to find a candidate to run in the 8th who would be "acceptable" to the Washington establishment. So Mr. Hudson dutifully conducted a candidate search. But, finding no additional candidates to run against those already registered in the primaries, the NRCC Recruitment Chair, Steve Scalise, informed Mr. Hudson that he, Mr. Hudson, would be the NRCC chosen candidate for the 8th District!
So we now have a drama openly at play in the 8th. It appears the primary race will come down to two dramatically different choices: On one hand we have a hand-picked, well-funded, Washington insider with close connections to lots of special interest groups. On the other hand we have an honest, principled, uncorrupted conservative who will stand for and on Constitutional principles. The outcome will reveal much about the electorate in the 8th Congressional District.
