Walsh defeats Trump Machine in North Carolina

Joe Walsh will be on the North Carolina Presidential Primary ballot as the North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBOE) unanimously confirmed him as a nationally recognized viable candidate today.

The Trump machine and North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) bosses had hoped to block any challenges to the weakest Republican President in decades, but their efforts failed as the entire body voted to add Walsh and others to the ballot. The NCGOP had submitted just a single name to the Board, hoping to force all Republicans in the state to have no options beyond the President when they go to the polls March 3, 2020.

While GOP bosses have successfully conspired to hand elections to the President in nine other states, Republican voters in North Carolina will thankfully be able to have a say in their nominee thanks to a handful of principled public officials standing up for the rule of law.
