  •  Virginia Foxx (18+ / 0-)

    She voted no. However it may come back to haunt her. Even hard core conservatives in North Carolina have been shocked by what out Governor and Legislature have done. We are hearing rumblings of getting rid of the right wingers and this time in spite of gerrymandering Virginia Foxx is vulnerable. Even my right wing brother can't stand her. Of course I have been secretly working on him and he is starting to move slightly towards center. He is disabled and worried about his Social Security and Medicare. A lot of conservative seniors are starting to worry and we need to target these groups aggressively to let them know how vulnerable they are to the wingnuts. This senior is doing her part to help but I need other seniors to join me.

      Also, make sure that seniors realize that even if the older among them are protected from changes to SS and Medicare, they will still be negatively affected by what happens to their younger family and friends.

    •  Focus not just on Foxx (4+ / 0-)

      but also Ellmers, Pittenger, Hudson, McHenry, Holding and Meadows.  Because if Foxx is in danger of losing and if NC residents are that pissed off at the GOP, then every single GOP rep with maybe the exception of Jones and Cobble are in danger.  I wouldn't even be surprised to see those last two in danger.

    •  Virginia Foxx is easy to can't stand (5+ / 0-)

      She's a veritable bastion of ignorance.
