    NC GOP Chief Of Staff, Strategist ResignsRALEIGH, N.C. -- Bill Peaslee, the state Republican Party's chief of staff and top political strategist since April 2001, resigned Monday, two weeks after the GOP's poor showing on Election Day both nationally and in North Carolina. It's the second departure within the party leadership this month. Chairman Ferrell Blount confirmed his resignation before the polls closed election night, saying he needed to step down to consider a run for statewide office in 2008.

    RALEIGH - Wake District Attorney Colon Willoughby said Monday he has asked the State Bureau of Investigation to look into allegations that the husband of a state Supreme Court candidate began voting in North Carolina before his felony probation in Georgia ended. State Board of Elections officials asked Willoughby to investigate the voting record of Connie Mack Berry Jr., the husband of Rachel Lea Hunter. Hunter, a Durham lawyer who lives in Cary, is running for the state Supreme Court against sitting justice Mark Martin. If Berry voted or registered to vote before his probation ended, he could face a...

    Madame Loony TunesEven Democrats, Republicans agree on this candidate A candidate for N.C. Supreme Court justice who promotes herself as Madame Justice deserves a nickname in her campaign, all right, but not the one lawyer Rachel Lea Hunter wants. Ms. Hunter, a Democrat, has never been a judge, but she wants voters to oust Associate Justice Mark Martin, a Republican, and elect her. She wanted the State Board of Elections to put her on the Nov. 7 ballot as "Madame Justice." No way, the board said. She should try Madame Loony Tunes.

    The future of North Carolina Conservatives By Alan M. Teitleman It is a sad state of affairs for Conservatives in North Carolina. What used to be a conservative state is now rampant with liberals posing as Republicans. Although I have only lived in North Carolina for five years, I have seen a lot of changes in North Carolina politics during that time. I saw the chairman of a county Democratic party switch party affiliation and become elected to the Stallings town council as a Republican. I saw the Democratic party actively recruit Democrats to switch parties and run in Republican...

    RALEIGH --The North Carolina Republican Party on Saturday endorsed Raleigh lawyer Paul Newby for the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Robert Orr, and the gesture gave an inkling of how the two major political parties might treat the nonpartisan races this year. The 2004 campaign marks the first election in which candidates for appellate court judgeships cannot denote their party affiliation on the ballot. The Democrat-dominated General Assembly applied the new restrictions during the 2002 session after a string of Republican successes in Supreme Court and Appeals Court races in recent election cycles. Interviews with candidates and party officials,...
