Frank Roche discusses some points after his loss in the primary to Renee Ellmers in the US House primary for NC District 2.
Renee Ellmers is a disgrace to North Carolina and especially her constituents. The videos released in her few meetings with a limited amount of her “peasants” should have caused any honorable candidate to withdraw. Arrogance, thy name is Renee Ellmers. Ignorance, the voters in the 2nd district of North Carolina who supported Renee and another term.
Often, those who lose a party primary end their campaign with a call for party unity, congratulate the winner and perhaps line themselves up to serve in some lesser public capacity such as an appointed board until the next election rolls around.
That is not the approach Frank Roche is taking.
The Republican who challenged 2nd District Congresswoman Renee Ellmers in this week’s primary used a missive emailed to supporters and posted on his website to criticize the GOP establishment, the media and particularly Ellmers.
On the 15 percent voter turnout in the district, he says,”Pathetic.”
