Real Conservatives (read: War lovin' Democrat hatin' Republicans) who don't like Congressman Walter B. Jones will have someone else to vote for in a Republican primary. I guess they weren't too happy about Jones agreeing that getting out of Iraq is a good idea. (NC-3, Jones's district, is the northern coastal district and extends inland to pick up Jacksonville and parts of Greenville; get a map in a new window.) According to NC Rumors, Greg Dority, who once ran for the NC-1 seat, is on the case:
"Every time these news agencies spotlight Democrats," Dority said," whose blind hatred of President Bush allows them to rationalize undermining the War on Terror and endangering the morale and lives of our troops, they replay Walterâ€™s Press Conference with the liberal Democrats from last summer. They use him, and the people, including the military families he is supposed to represent, as their pet American conservative who opposes the War."
Craig Weber is the only Democrat running (that I know of), so he's the man to exploit this divide.
