As everyone will know by now, Carteret County was a clean sweep for Republican candidates in yesterday’s mid-term elections. There will be lots of speculation about exactly what accounted for this outcome or that, but I have to believe that our Tea Party effort was responsible in some significant part. It also helped that, in this instance, the Crystal Coast Tea Party Patriots’ preferences happened to coinside with those of the Carteret County GOP.
And here are two charts to ponder. The first is of the partisan races, which includes all the local candidates in addition to the U.S. Senate contest between Thom Tillis and Kay Hagan. Click to enlarge.
