Laura Ingraham hosted Taylor Griffin challenging Walter Jones in North Carolina.
Griffin said that while Jones, after being a Democrat, became a Republican but has worked since with the Democrats. Griffin said he is against amnesty as the GOP should be for the rule of law. He is for continuing deportations.

The Weekly Standard really has it out for Jones. I’d think he was in trouble, but I remember them pushing a GOP primary challenger, veteran Joe McLaughlin, against Jones back in 2008, and Jones won easily by double-digits.
The challenger hurt himself badly by going on the Laura Ingraham Show because she is against trade agreements, amnesty and more war.
Maybe she could trick Bentivolio’s challenger into going on the show.
Ingraham asked him if he was closer to Lindsey Graham or Jeff Sessions. She explained the positions of both. Then he said Jeff Sesssions.
I wish she had not given him a description. I guess working for Bush he must know who Lindsey and Jeff are. He didn’t immediately answers who was more like.
He eventually said he “didn’t want crops rotting in the fields.”
Love me some Mr. Jones.
Don’t let the establishment win:
Mrs. Jesse Helms has a radio ad going for Representative Jones...she has more clout than the Weekly Standard here in Eastern NC!
His district (the 3rd) is the location of three major military installations - Camp Lejeune MCB, New River Air Station, and Seymour Johnson AFB. He was an initial supporter of the Iraq war, but later became a vocal critic of it. I have lived in Jacksonville, NC, most of my life. It is home to Camp Lejeune and thousands of Marines. Although I am not directly connected to the Corps, I have many friends, coworkers, and students that are and they have taught me that in order to truly support them you must support their mission because to accomplish their mission is their primary objective and the reason for which they would sacrifice their very life. I know that Walter Jones was not critical of the war due to purely political reasons as the Democrats were, but I do not agree with his voicing that opinion while so many members of the military were in still in harm's way.

Walter Jones is yet another TARGET of the GOPe’s war on conservatives. The GOPe is terrified that (at least in the House of Representatives) conservative Republicans may well achieve a sufficient number of new Tea Party conservative representatives in the House that a “tipping point” will be reached with the ruling elite being replaced by real, honest-to-goodness conservatives. So they have targeted a number of current Republican incumbents (such as Walter Jones in North Carolina and Kerry Bentivolio in Michigan) for defeat by designated RINOS. Taylor Griffin is one of these RINO challengers—don’t be deceived by the GOPe snakes in the grass. Support Walter Jones for reelection in the primary.
