Democrat says he won't run for court if he can't be listed as a Republican

The personal injury lawyer who switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican just before filing to run for the North Carolina Supreme Court says he'll drop out of the race if he can't be listed as a Republican. 

From the Carolina Journal:

State Supreme Court candidate Chris Anglin has offered to withdraw from the race if the courts don’t restore his affiliation as a Republican to the Nov. 6 general election ballot.

Anglin hand-delivered a conditional candidate withdrawal notice Wednesday, Aug. 8, to the N.C. Bipartisan State Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement. The conditional withdrawal comes two days after he filed a lawsuit against the General Assembly and won a temporary restraining order in the case.

“While I firmly believe and intend to prove in court the legislature’s action is an unconstitutional violation of my rights, in the unlikely circumstance that the courts allow it to go into effect, I will not allow my party designation to be misrepresented on the ballot and aid their efforts to rig this election,” Anglin said in a written statement to Carolina Journal.

To be clear, the Anglin campaign is an exercise in trolling, and this is another piece of proof.

His Democrat campaign manager refuses to commit to voting for Anglin:

Woods cannot explain why Democrats should vote for Anglin rather than Anita Earls (who Anglin is actually attempting to help win):

He never does make the case that Democrats should cross over and vote for Anglin. After all, he's a Democrat and HE probably won't vote for Anglin.

Obviously, Woods and Anglin have rehearsed their scripted excuses well, and rely on them when pressed by people who treat the campaign like the hoax it is.

But, it turns out, they have greater difficulty answering questions when you treat the campaign as if it's legitimate.

Is relief aid so slow due to politics?

Time to play our favorite game: Imagine if a Republican Did It?

Gov. Roy Cooper (D) took money from a woman who owns a company that has been running the distribution of relief funds.

Meanwhile, victims of Hurricane Matthew have not seen any of the money...


But, wait! There's more!

Buncombe County Commissioner Jasmine Beach-Ferrara released a statement in the wake of the federal indictments of three former county administrators.

New York City just put a cap on the number of Uber and Lyft drivers allowed to work in the city.

An Antifa professor who attacked people with a bike lock gets probation.

The coverage of the Islamic terrorist training camp in New Mexico is why people don't trust the media.

Another example of how ignorant the New York Democratic Socialist congressional candidate is.

Tariffs lead to corruption.
