Congressman Walter Jones has been in plenty of primary fights during his 20 years in the U.S. House, but none apparently as tough or expensive as the one that ends with Tuesday’s election.

Jones My Pick

I've been watching this campaign and have yet to see what Griffin has to offer that we don't already have. Griffin's most recent mailing claims we don't need a career politician to represent us. Maybe not but what is Griffin? He's young and his ENTIRE very short career, as he described in his flyer, has been involved in guess what? Politics in Washington DC.

$$$ don't necessarily = votes

With the media implying that money equals votes, this does not necessarily mean that this holds true. There is no doubt that the media can be bought for a price, but we're talking pure stinking evil liberals here that have the mindset that money means power. This old school thinking may have been valid in the 60's, 70's, & 80's, but Americans now clearly see the direction that this has gotten our nation pointing towards, and it ain't pretty! Agreed, Jones has not always voted the way I would have liked him to vote, but sometimes one has to lose a battle to win a war, and his overall strategy and track record suits me just fine. Realistically, I cannot see myself voting for someone else with the nickname "Big Al" (re:mafia guy/broken kneecaps and the like) and Griffin is just too much of a "Cinderella story" that has all of a sudden appeared out of the woodwork as the next miracle worker. This time, I'll take the, although not perfect, tried and true. Jones has my vote yet again.
