Thursday, Jan. 7, 2021 -- It was horrible to watch. It was disgraceful behavior. We should have seen it coming. Too many, especially Republicans who should know better, especially those from North Carolina, have spent the last four years looking the other way. Mobs, encouraged on by a President emboldened by the reflexive affirmation of his congressional GOP loyalists, overran the security forces and stormed the Capitol - the world's temple to representative government.
Monday, Dec. 14, 2020 -- North Carolina congressional Republicans signed onto the a baseless lawsuit to invalidate millions of presidential election votes - a suit rapidly rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court - out of fear as they look two years to their next election. They're terrified if they fail to bow, even to Donald Trump's most frivolous whim, the increasingly radicalized base of his devotees will respond negatively in a GOP primary to the perceived insufficient loyalty.
Friday, July 24, 2020 -- It's irresponsible for Congress and the president to stop providing this critical support now when the virus still is spreading rapidly and states, especially in the South, are seeing record high case counts. ... It's not safe for some people to go back to work and many don't have jobs to return to yet.

Sens. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr should back the bill and press for action on it as soon as possible.
Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2019 -- North Carolinians deserve members of the U.S. House of Representatives who have the courage to act with clear conscience and do their sworn duty. Uphold the Constitution. Stand for the separation of powers. Demand the truth from the president. Facts are facts.
Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019 -- Being upset because Congress, which has the power to authorize how federal funds are spent, didn't provide money to build an unnecessary wall along the Mexican border IS NOT an emergency. Making such a declaration, as President Donald Trump has done, is a tantrum. Congress should block Trump's declaration.
The five-term Republican from Banner Elk says she will not run for a chance to challenge U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.
Lt. Gov. Dan Forest is the Republican Party's best shot to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, according to a new poll.
U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan holds early leads over potential 2014 Republican rivals, but that's primarily because people don't know or don't like the GOP options, according to a new poll.
Holding, three other North Carolina lawmakers, vote against Sandy aid.
