Earlier this year, Heath Schuler decided that masquerading as a conservative Democrat in the era of Obama and Pelosi had become too cumbersome, and summarily announced his retirement. This western North Carolina district has become even more Republican after redistricting, providing us with an easy pickup opportunity. This is the sort of seat that we can easily fill with a conservative without having to battle an incumbent Republican. Our choice is Mark Meadows.
A strong comprehensive conservative, Mark was described to us by someone who knows this race as tea party inside the Republican Party years before the tea party existed. Thats a strong endorsement of someone who has fought for principle inside a party structure, one of the hardest things to do. For many years, we have stressed the importance of conservative involvement in the precinct and county levels of the Republican Party. Mark Meadows served as a textbook example of how to get it done. He started off attending precinct meetings in a small county, easily becoming chairman after bringing in a few likeminded friends. Eventually he was able to become county chairman and help push the state party platform to the right, even though he was from an obscure part of the state.
Mark is an outspoken supporter of life and marriage who is opposed to TARP and government bailouts. A successful businessman, Marks story is the quintessential American one as he started a restaurant with a small line of credit and made it a success, building on that success in the following years. As such, he understands that a true free-market society must work unencumbered by government mandates, but also without government subsidies. He is also committed to restoring power to state and local governments on issues such as transportation and infrastructure.

Mark Meadows sounds like the real deal to me.
Sounds like a solid conservative, and is well funded. I think he’s the guy for NC-11.
Too bad Congressman Billybob ain’t around... this might’ve been his year.
Heard Mark speak a couple of weeks ago, he not only looks good but sounds good. I will be voting for this week.
