  •  NC-03 primary will be interesting (4+ / 0-)

    Taylor Griffin has received huge support from Wall Street and the Republican establishment, who want to oust incumbent Walter Jones.  Griffin has called Jones the most liberal Republican in Congress, although Jones is a member of the tea party caucus and generally takes anti-government positions.

    Griffin has the endorsement of Sarah Palin and Bill Kristol while Jones has the endorsement of Ron Paul.  The name "Walter Jones" (the incumbent and his Democratic father) has represented eastern NC for nearly fifty years, but Jones has never had to run a real campaign and could be upset by Griffin.
