The left are already out calling him a racist..
No doubt the “news” media obits will be full of snarky comments about race, etc. But Jesse was such a man of principle. Even few Republicans could match his tenacity or be willing to stand up for freedom and strength even if it was unpopular. His margins of victory were never overwhelming but Jesse managed to convince a majority of NC voters to stick with him 4 times. Not bad.
I saw that at the DNC Times of Los Angeles (talk show host Larry Elder's description of the L.A. Times). Outside of their sports section (except when they talk about Curt Schilling and Roger Clemens) and their Sunday ads and coupons, there ain't a damn reason to buy that fishwrap.
