New Year, Same Problems: Outside Money, Intra-Party Dueling Fueling Messy #NCSEN GOP Primary

In 2021, the Republican U.S. Senate primary in North Carolina saw “unprecedented” outside involvement in the race to prop up candidates and bash their opponents. In 2022, the chaos continues.

  • This morning, a new Super PAC backing Marjorie Eastman has funded a full-screen takeover ad  on the News & Observer, a sign that the crowded field of candidates and unlimited outside money is only going to intensify the contest. The group, Restore Common Sense, has  ties to True The Vote, which worked to “root out supposed 2020 voter fraud,” according to recent reporting from Axios.
