ALL POLITICS ARE LOCAL

I now live in the 6th Congressional District of North Carolina, currently served by the reliably execrable Republican Mark Walker.  The 6th CD is a plus-7 R district, rather less heavily Republican than the district just win barely by Conor Lamb.  At a Candidates' Forum hosted by the Carolina Meadows Democratic Club the other night, I saw Ryan Watts, a pleasant enough twenty-seven year old UNC graduate who is seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Walker.

I have decided to throw my efforts behind Watts.  If we could snatch the NC 6th away from the Republicans it would be a great victory.

You do what you can.

He seems to be a center-right Democrat--argues that Democrats aren't worried about the deficit etc. But that is about the best that can be expected from such a district, much as Conor Lamb was the best to be expected in his district in Pennsylvania. These aren't Bernie's kind of Democrats. They're crucial, however, to getting a Democratic majority in the House which will have some power, at least, to restrain Trump--not to mention investigate him and possibly impeach him.
