Virginia Foxx sounds quite conservative in the article.
She frequently SOUNDS conservative. But she's pro-gay and is said by many to be relatively liberal in her private views -- or when addressing a more liberal audience.
I think if Jim Snyder is the Lt Gov nominee that will draw a few folks to the polls that would be more hesitant otherwise. If Burr gets his message and record out he'll be fine.

"She frequently SOUNDS conservative. But she's pro-gay and is said by many to be relatively liberal in her private views -- or when addressing a more liberal audience."
I received a letter from Alan Keyes endorsing Vernon Robinson (whom I was already supporting), and it included a long letter from Robinson himself in which he said, among other things, that Virginia Foxx (whom he didn't refer to by name, but it was unmistakenly her) was very pro-gay and has voted for a gazillion tax increases. NC-05 is a ridiculously Republican district, so there is no reason to nominate someone who does not give us 100% of what we want. Vernon Robinson would be one of the most conservative members of the House, and the fact that he's black will help our party expand its base by encouraging blacks to consider the fact that they agree with the GOP on many if not most issues, including abortion, gay rights, religious freedom and school vouchers. Johnny ,I hope your sources who said that Robinson "cain't win" the primary (because there are too many candidates from Winston-Salem)are wrong. Do you have any updates on the race?
