Chalk up one victory for party leaders on an otherwise anti-establishment night: Tim D'Annunzio, who made national headlines with his "machine gun social" fundraisers, has gone down to defeat in a North Carolina congressional runoff, the Associated Press reports.
The victor in the race, former sportscaster Harold Johnson, got a big boost from Republican party leaders anxious to avoid a controversy-plagued candidate in a district they think they can win this fall.
Isn't running a machine gun party like putting all your eggs in one basket? Do you think most North Carolinians would like such a thing?
