From the Daily Haymaker’s Brant Clifton (and his well placed sources):
“I had the opportunity to connect this past weekend with some political players who have been very influential in recent years regarding cash and strategy for North Carolina General Assembly campaigns. Their overall message?
House Republicans are not battling to hold a super-majority. They’re fighting to keep a majority period.
From what I hear, the Senate majority is nowhere near such dire straits.
I learned from my sources that poor messaging, and depressing polling and fundraising have put a number of once-safe House seats (i.e., Ted Davis) along the coast in jeopardy. Put those together with the always-shaky GOP seats in the Raleigh and Charlotte areas, and you have the perfect recipe for House minority leader Tim Moore.
How could this happen — just eight years after taking Raleigh by storm?”
