  •  McHenry and gay escort murder in 4/2007 (0+ / 0-)

    If McHenry runs for Senate the old story about his ties to one or more of the 3 men murdered in a 2007 Florida love-gay escort service triple murder-suicide (plus another Pennsylvania gay escort murder case) would all be aired again.  His Congressional District voters have moved on from that, but he would not want to stir up that hornets nest (and the recurring stories about how McHenry is gay) again with a U.S. Senate run.

    •  A Good Chuck Of His District... (1+ / 0-)

      ...if new to him due to gerrymandering.  He lost the portion of Buncombe County (Asheville) that is now in his district by a 2-1 margin and the result was the weakest win (57%) of his career.

      That's probably not quite enough to encourage a fully funded challenger, but this was not an impressive win for him.
