WASHINGTON, D.C. – The top three North Carolina finishers in Conservative Review’s congressional conservative rankings should not be a surprise. Hint: Thom Tillis didn’t medal.
“Congressmen Mark Meadows, Ted Budd, and Walter Jones are holding firm as the top three conservatives from North Carolina in the latest congressional rankings from Conservative Review.
Meadows (95%-A), Budd (95%-A), and Jones (86%-B) lead the delegation to DC. They are followed by Mark Walker (80%-B), George Holding (80%-B), and Richard Hudson (70%-C).
David Rouzer (66%-D), Virginia Foxx (64%-D), Robert Pittenger (49%-F), and Patrick McHenry (45%-F) bring up the rear for the state’s House GOP members.”
Guess which congressman among these is a member of the House leadership? Exactly.
Apparently, turning in your conservative principles is a necessary price for a fast track to leadership. It’s called ‘selling out’ and the congressman from NC’s 10th District with a Napoleon complex seems to have put out the offers a few years ago.
The only North Carolina politicians that performed worse than McHenry? Our two esteemed U.S. Senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, at 42 percent and 38 percent respectively.
Contrary to McHenry’s official leadership post, though, Rep. Mark Meadows has demonstrated what real leadership is. Fighting against the grain to protect and advance conservative principles and the People of North Carolina as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus is a positive we are lucky to have.
