The NC Tea Party Caucuses took place today at locations scattered throughout the state. The victors were Ted Cruz for President and Larry Holmquist for U.S. Senate. The results are found here.
I attended the caucus held in Winston-Salem. It was very well run; and a fairly large group of conservative folks attended. Many spoke earnestly and passionately about the myriad problems and issues the nation faces, and why they felt their candidate was the best option.
The crowd was largely divided into two camps favoring Ted Cruz or Ben Carson. Carson made a good showing overall, even though Cruz was the victor. A sprinkling of Trump and Paul supporters were also in attendance.
For the U.S. Senate race, Richard Burr barely even registered on the radar screen. Lots of folks are utterly disgusted with the man's voting record.
Kudos to all those involved in organizing this event. Here's hoping it grows, both with respect to participation and prominence, during future election cycles.
