  • Renee Ellmers on same-sex marriage, illegal immigration, the war on women and Clay Aiken

    On the Supreme Court’s decision not to take up same-sex marriage: RENEE ELLMERS: That was a states issue. In my personal opinion, I did feel my concern about the actual legislation that the state was putting forward, I did feel it went too far. (SNIP) Q: What happened to immigration reform? ELLMERS: I wish we had addressed it. We were this close, we were very, very close to starting to vote on immigration reform.

    If you were wondering why incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers decided to debate Democrat challenger Clay Aiken, this news might give you a hint. The Civitas survey was conducted Sept. 26-28 among 400 registered voters. It had a margin of error of +-5 percent. Ellmers’s favorable / unfavorable rating was at 25/28 while Aiken’s sat at 25/35. Forty-seven percent of the registered voters said they were either neutral, or had no opinion, on the two-term congresswoman.

    The Republican candidate for U.S. House in North Carolina’s 6th district recently suggested that the United States military could use force in Mexico to prevent the flow of foreigners crossing the border with drug cartels. During a GOP runoff forum in June, hosted by a tea party group in Rockingham County, Mark Walker was asked how he would secure the United States’ southern border.

    On Sunday, I wrote an article about the GOP's poor messaging on the “war on women” narrative. I posted some comments from Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., who said GOP men need to bring their messages “down to a woman's level.” Ellmers called me a “liberal woman reporter” and said I had taken her quote “completely out of context.” Below are her full comments from the event Friday, along with the audio of her segment.

    It’s really frustrating when Republican candidates say really dumb things that allow Democrats to come out sounding down-right sensible. Case in point: Rockingham County prosecutor Phil Berger, Jr., who is locked in a runoff fight with Greensboro pastor Mark Walker for the GOP nomination for North Carolina’s Sixth Congressional District. Berger recently gave Laura Fjeld, a former UNC system employee and the district’s Democrat nominee, a chance to score some points: (SNIP) “We are going to put ourselves in the position to represent the people of the sixth district most effectively.

    Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg's pro-amnesty organization FWD.us bought deceptive advertisements to help Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) defeat underfunded primary challenger Frank Roche in Tuesday's North Carolina primary. The group promptly celebrated Ellmers' win. FWD.us's Joe Green said that Ellmers' victory "makes clear" that "the time is now for House Republicans to bring" amnesty legislation to the floor. Lobbying groups like FWD.us want high-tech visas that will lower the wages of American workers, even though no evidence suggests there is a shortage of American high-tech workers.

They failed the 2nd District and America. They overstepped their pledged boundaries of neutrality during the primary and again demonstrated themselves to be part of the problem. Local petty political gate-keepers assisted their poorly qualified incumbent in ways that require they be removed from their volunteer Chairmanship positions.

But the only way to send a message to these people is at the polling place. You’ve got the opportunity, from now until May 6, to do a little RINO-hunting.

Etheridge acknowledged Friday afternoon what the numbers had said since Nov. 2, that he was ousted by Ellmers, a tea party darling and political newcomer. Despite the ongoing recount, Ellmers has been acting the role of congresswoman-elect. She was on Capitol Hill all week with other House freshmen, attending orientations, hiring staff and searching for a place to bunk in Washington.

    Bonus minutes: At 4 pm ET, (about the 1 hr mark on the video) we’ll talk with Renee Ellmers, who is running for Congress in North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District — against incumbent Democratic Rep. Rob Etheridge, caught on tape assaulting a student film crew on the streets of Washington DC. We’ll talk to her about that and about the issues.
