Why is Sen. Jeff Tarte trolling Campbell University?

Sen. Jeff Tarte, a Charlotte-area Republican, has been trolling Campbell University (~140 miles away from his district) over their new medical school and the way it graduates doctors.

"Politely, Campbell University's new 'medical school' as structured will NEVER graduate a single MD. #ncga #cltpol" he tweeted on Aug. 6, correctly in the most technical of terms, but completely missing the point since it's been made clear several times that the school will graduate DOs, or doctors of osteopathic medicine.

DOs are licensed the same as MDs in North Carolina and every other state. Something like 1/5 of the doctors in the nation are DOs. It's pretty common.

A few minutes later, Tarte follows up with "Are you a medical school if you offer no Medical Doctor degrees? #ncga #cltpol"

Why is Jeff Tarte trolling a private medical school? Why is he trolling a private medical school in Harnett County (140 miles from his Mecklenburg County district) and adding the hashtag "cltpol?" What's wrong with new doctors and economic activity in a rural, depressed area? What is Jeff Tarte's problem?

He obviously has no idea what

He obviously has no idea what he his talking about, or who he is messing with. Does he realize that Campbell and Art Pope have a strong connection? Maybe he didn't notice the name on the big new convocation center at the second roundabout. I wonder if the real governor will take him to the woodshed.

I'm a moderate Democrat.

Yep.

Pope owns Campbell ... all of it ... after having had his bids for UNC and NCCU spurned, for good reason.

Book the Senator Danno!

We don't know why he is doing it, but if he comes to Lizard Lick, we will arrest the Jerk as a child pervert enforcer in the educational field of Republican Stupity
