    But his apparent primary win was weak, and he is at best facing a Likely R race. I salute him for his effort, though, win or lose.

      desires a political career. This will be an uphill fight for the general..but at least he is gaining experience so he will not be considered a political newbie next time he runs for office.

      I would like to see him go after state office next time if he loses in the general, start a little smaller and work his way off. He could run for local or state office and then try for Congress again..etc.

        If that's what he wants to do, yes.

        And without him running, this would have been a Safe-R race, so even if he ends up getting drubbed, it's just good that he decided to run.

          and district. People are paying attention to NC-2 which now is getting national attention. Clay was on Colbert and I suspect we will see a lot more of him as entertainment websites and magazines are also covering his run for office.
