Upcoming Primary: North Carolina US Senate Tuesday, May 6

On Tuesday, May 6, 2014, North Carolinians will be voting in several primary elections, including those for Congress. We will focus on the US Senate primary.  Senator Kay Hagan is running for reelection this year.


Senator Hagan continues to support Obamacare, despite a recent High Point University poll stating that 54% of North Carolinians disapprove of the law. Senator Hagan blames insurance companies for cancelling health insurance plans as those plans are, according to her, “substandard.” In addition, Senator Hagan has repeated the “if you like your plan, you can keep it” lie.

Here is a list of the Republicans in this crowded primary running for Senator Hagan’s seat along with their respective websites:

Ted Alexander http://tedforsenate.com/

Alex Lee Bradshaw http://www.bradshaw4nc.com/

Greg Brannon http://gregbrannon.com/

Heather Grant http://www.heathergrantnc.com/

Mark Harris http://www.markharrisforsenate.com/

Edward Kryn http://edwardkrynforussenate.com/

James E. Snyder http://www.jamesesnyderjr.com/

Thom Tillis http://thomtillis.com/

Currently, Thom Tillis is poised to win this primary. In a matchup between Tillis and Senator Hagan, they are virtually tied.

In addition to this primary, Rep. Renee Ellmers is running for reelection in CD 2 against Clay Aiken, American Idol runner up. Apparently competing on two reality shows (Idol and Celebrity Apprentice) qualifies a person to serve as a Congressman. What’s next? Kongresswoman Kardashian?

North Carolinians, please remember to vote in this primary on Tuesday, May 6, 2014!
