NC Supreme Court Race Surrendered by NCGOP?

RALEIGH – Unless Republicans come out in force to support incumbent originalist Justice Barbara Jackson, the highest court in North Carolina is in serious danger of adding a Radical Leftist to the bench.

As appropriately presented by the Daily Haymaker:

The NCGOP is in real danger of going 0 for 2 in Supreme Court races during the Hayes-Woodhouse era. (They’re already 0 for 1 in gubernatorial races.)

It wasn’t long ago that we were bombarded with ads promoting Justice Paul Newby (R). Judicial races are all about name ID, and we had Newby’s name pounded into our heads.

Then comes 2016 and the Bob Edmunds debacle. Marketing for the Supreme Court race was ratcheted way down, and Edmunds lost a very winnable race.

Now, in 2018, it’s becoming apparent the state GOP learned nothing from 2016. The state Supreme Court has a far-reaching on life in North Carolina. Yet, the reelection of Justice Barbara Jackson is basically being ignored at NCGOP HQ. More and more funds are being doled out to sheriff candidates and legislators in marginal seats. There are few if any ads. Spotting a Jackson yard sign is like finding a four-leafed clover.

We saw polling from Civitas not too long ago that showed Jackson with 11 percent of the vote in the three-way race. Spectrum News just came out with a poll that’s not a lot better […]

Read more here about Jackson’s polling and the seeming surrender from the NCGOP, and then GO VOTE FOR BARBARA JACKSON for N.C. Supreme Court.
