    "Could Walter Jones be more anti-establishment?" isn't a question asked by a Capitol Hill denizen in a sarcastic manner, but it appears to be one asked in all seriousness regarding the 11-term Republican congressman from North Carolina's 3rd District. A story posted by the Congressional politics publication Roll Call on Thursday leads with a quote from Lauch Faircloth and Robin Hayes campaign veteran Chuck Fuller, who states Jones couldn't have helped himself more in his reelection campaign when he sent a letter to House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers suggesting thorough vetting of speaker of the House candidates.

    Oct 14, 2015 | Independent Weekly

    First, conservative activist Kay Daly jumped into the GOP primary race for North Carolina's 2nd congressional district with a quite-literal bang: In a TV ad that went viral, Daly denounced Ellmers for being a RINO - Republican In Name Only - and blasted a shotgun while announcing that she's " hunting rinos ."
