The question all North Carolinians should be pondering:
Still wild to me that we could expand Medicaid in NC for literally $0.00 of state taxpayer money and it’s *still* not even allowed a vote.
Health care for 500k people.
Tens of 1,000s of jobs.
And it’s not even an option. #ncpol

Never forget the GOP motto: If it ain't broke, break it; and if it's a good policy that will help those on the lower end of the income spectrum, rip it up and throw it in the trash.
The NC Budget continues to be molded, not asked by left/right is why state employees should NOT receive ANY merit pay, but that ALL employees, good/bad/indifferent should receive the SAME raise? Unions do it, but we shouldn't. #ncpol

Maybe it's just me, but I can't make heads or tails of this Tweet. If your radio show is equally ambiguous and disjointed, you're probably going to be sued by people who cock their head at such an angle vertebrae get damaged...

Gotcha. Bi-partisan, aisle-crossing, country over the (Democratic) Party. Dude, I am genuinely trying to support your campaign, but you're making it very damn hard.
I am proud to announce that I will be running to be the next Lt. Governor of North Carolina! Check out the announcement video below. #ncpol pic.twitter.com/yFjZZPDRHE

Buddy Bengel? I just lost five minutes of my life trying to figure out who (TF) Buddy Bengel is, and I'll never get that five minutes back...
While Republicans are slowly catching up with Democrats in total voter registration, the number of new unaffiliated voters in North Carolina far outstrips the number of new registrants of either party. #ncga #ncpolhttps://t.co/eFq5k7I5GK

If by "slowly" you mean "might catch up by 2057," then yes.
WEDNESDAY: The House will be voting to override or sustain @NC_Governor's veto of SB 359 on WEDNESDAY.

Which also happens to be the anti-abortion crowd's "lobby day," of course. Stand strong, and back up the Governor.
A new agreement filed in court Friday would make clear that transgender people can use restrooms and other public facilities that align with their gender identity, but Republican state legislative leaders continue to oppose it. #ncpol https://t.co/VNPDxRm4Vk

Actually, Blackbeard stole that ship from the French, so we should probably see what they want done with it...
So, we should all ignore the last year of McCready bashing Republicans.
His new ad is about bipartisanship, y'all!#NC09 #NCpol https://t.co/LS67mWoBRw

How dare you. It's okay for me to criticize him (because duh), but no comments from the right-wing peanut gallery.
Anyone know where @LtGovDanForest is? I'm legit asking. Wasn't in the Senate at all last week, budget week. His office won't say. Spokesman won't respond. Campaign manager won't respond. Been asking since Thursday #ncga #ncpol (1/2)
— Travis Fain (@TravisFain) June 3, 2019
Welp, he's lost for good. No reason to drag this thing out, we should put a new Lt. Gov. in place asap.
Since we now know that ballot harvesting really IS legal in NC, what was the 9th Congressional District show trials really about??!! #ncpol @ncleg @NCSBE @seanhannity @sistertoldjah @APDillon_ @destinhallnc @RepHollyGrange

Delirious, as usual. Probably slammed one too many doors, and that mostly-hollow head got in the way.

Translated: "He took away our slaves and made us actually work the land ourselves." Some of these right-wing Twits at least try to have a coherent message, but others have completely lost their minds.
This is why my bill to protect electric vehicle parking spaces is important. Unfortunately, #HB788 hasn’t been heard in the House Judiciary Committee. If you drive an EV or hybrid vehicle, contact the committee chairs and ask for the bill to be heard! #ncpol @nclcv @SierraClubNC pic.twitter.com/o0GNjCdfaC

Idiot probably thinks parking there will charge up his battery...

Buck up, little camper. You're still in the top five worst conflicts of interest in Congress.
Well, I wouldn't say I'm "fine" with it, just not overly concerned...
