  • Was Trump's Endorsement of Congresswoman Ellmers Reverse Psychology?

    The Donald can now say he tried to help the GOPe maintain the House majority, but the conservative base are speaking and it's beyond his control in case he gets pushback from Ryan and his Chamber of Commerce peeps. Of course, the Left and reprobates like Erik Erickson (Thanks Mods/Jim for pulling that thread, Redstate is dead to me) will spin it and say that Trump has no coattails or whatever, but they couldn't be more wrong. Trump's not a traditional politician. He's going to make these types of moves because it's good to get criticism from the base, which...

    Incumbent Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers has been defeated by another Republican incumbent, Rep. George Holding, in the 2nd Congressional District, the AP projects. Holding was ahead 52 percent to 24 percent with about two-thirds of precincts reporting. Holding represented the old 13th District, which covered the Raleigh area before moving west to the Triad. The 2nd District race featured the only two Congressional incumbents running against each other in an American primary this year. It garnered more national attention when Donald Trump endorsed Ellmers.

    Donald Trump has inserted himself into one of the most contentious House primaries in the country this weekend, endorsing GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers in her member-versus-member race in North Carolina. Trump makes a personal appeal to voters to back Ellmers in a robocall released Saturday. She was "the first congresswoman to endorse me and she really was terrific and boy, is she a fighter," Trump says in the call. It is the first time this election that Trump has picked sides in a congressional race.

    Rep. Renee Ellmers poured some jet fuel into what was already expected a biting primary battle for North Carolina's 2nd District congressional seat. Ellmers posted to her Facebook page a picture of her rival, Rep. George Holding, snoozing on a commercial flight. 'My opponent George Holding made sure to get another nap in after voting against North Carolina road projects, our family farms, disease prevention and even funding for our troops,' she wrote, deploying the hashtags 'low energy' and 'not for us.'

    Rep. Renee Ellmers stood up in a private meeting of Republican lawmakers on Friday and thanked them for their "prayers and support" after they received “nasty emails” accusing her of having an extramarital affair with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, according to multiple sources in the room. She did not mention McCarthy (R-Calif.) by name, detail the content of the emails or provide any other information. Sources close to Ellmers and McCarthy say the accusation is unfounded, and assert that it is being spread by a discredited troublemaker. McCarthy has publicly denied that any personal problems were behind his stunning...

    "Why not resign like Bob Livingston?”In the hours before House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) abruptly withdrew his candidacy to be the next speaker of the House, he was sent an email from a conservative activist threatening to expose an alleged affair with a colleague. The subject line: “Kevin, why not resign like Bob Livingston?” The email, sent just after 8 a.m. on Thursday, came from Steve Baer, a Chicago-based GOP donor known for mass-emailing conservative figures and Republican lawmakers. It was addressed to McCarthy and numerous others, including the personal account of Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.), who conservative media...

    The worse kept secret in North Carolina’s Second Congressional District is finally out there for all to see: Chatham County’s Jim Duncan is coming after John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy’s favorite member of the North Carolina congressional delegation.

    On a usually happy and even triumphant day, pro-life leaders found themselves angry at a vote in the U.S. House that never happened. Much of the talk today at the annual March for Life, that likely brought close to 500,000 mostly young people to Washington DC, was about how House leaders canned a bill that would have banned abortion after the 20th week of gestation, the point at which an unborn child is said to feel pain. Much of the anger was directed at Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of North Carolina, who, as reported by Breitbart News, organized a group...

    Democratic partisans are probably concerned at what might happen if the Republicans get over and get past their anti-gay history (though they'll never actually admit it). (SNIP) Actually, the message from NOM is that—given the Republican control of the House of Representative (and there's no chance of that changing in this election)—voting DeMaio and Tisei into office rather than pro-gay heterosexual Democrats is worse because the Republicans actually will have power. Here's what NOM is saying when it encourages voters to select traditional progressive Moulton over business-friendly moderate Republican Tisei: The Republican party states clearly in its platform that marriage...

    As hundreds of thousands of members of the pro-life community descend upon Washington D.C. for the March for Life Thursday, the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives has caved to Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) and a group of GOP women who believe passage of a bill that would ban abortions past the fifth month of pregnancy would hurt the Party’s chances with women and millennials. The upending of the bill comes as a member of that GOP leadership team, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)—the House GOP conference chair—is leading the House delegation to, and addressing the crowds of pro-life...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | January 17, 2015 | Dr. Susan Berry
    Pro-life leaders are expressing their fury toward Rep. Renée Ellmers (R-NC) for seeking to delay what has been expected to be a relatively easy passage next week of a House bill that would restrict abortions to 20 weeks of pregnancy based on scientific evidence that unborn babies experience pain at 20 weeks of gestation. According to the National Journal, Ellmers is leading a group of moderate Republican congresswomen who appear to have concerns about the political ramifications of the bill – which is to be voted on next week on the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision – because it...

    Rep. Renee Ellmers (RINO-NC) was elected to the House during the 2010 Tea Party surge. However, Ellmers has proven not to be conservative at all. She advocated raising the debt ceiling in 2010, while attacking other freshman members of Congress who would not agree to do the same, and in 2012 she openly admitted that Boehner was her boss and therefore did not want to cause problems with him.

    If you were wondering why incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers decided to debate Democrat challenger Clay Aiken, this news might give you a hint. The Civitas survey was conducted Sept. 26-28 among 400 registered voters. It had a margin of error of +-5 percent. Ellmers’s favorable / unfavorable rating was at 25/28 while Aiken’s sat at 25/35. Forty-seven percent of the registered voters said they were either neutral, or had no opinion, on the two-term congresswoman.
