ICYMI: Nasty #NCSEN GOP Primary At Risk Of Getting “Longer & Longer & Longer”

As the legislature considers pushing back the primary election date again, the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in North Carolina are still “slugging out” the contested primary. An extended primary season opens the door for even more months of infighting. 

What they’re saying:

Brian Murphy, NC Insider: “First political observation: The Budd-McCrory-Walker-etc. GOP Senate primary keeps getting longer and longer and longer.”

Jacob Rubashkin, Inside Elections: “Would be a three month delay from the original primary date of March 8. Comes as the GOP is still slugging out its Senate primary between former Gov. Pat McCrory and Rep. Ted Budd. Democrat Cheri Beasley has all but locked down her nomination.”

Colin Campbell, Business NC: “Prolongs the McCrory-Budd GOP primary fight”

Catch up on the intensifying attacks and infighting as the “unusually bloody” intraparty fight plays out among the primary rivals in North Carolina.
