The 3rd district GOP Congressional primary is not getting a lot of attention. A Washington beltway insider who has never previously lived in the district, Taylor Griffin. has parachuted in to challenge Walter Jones. A political consultant, Griffin knows all the right things to say to conservatives, whether he means them or not.
Here is a recent article showing how the beltway establishment Republicans are bankrolling Griffin in his challenge to Jones: http://atr.rollcall.com/gop-operati...epublican/
Jones has been standing up to Boehner and his crowd when Boehner caves in on budget / spending / debt matters and also opposes Boehner's cave in on amnesty for illegal aliens. I can see why the beltway establishment would like to get rid of him, but that is exactly why the grassroots needs to fight to keep Jones. Boehner is the one we need to get rid of.
