The Last Word on Buncombe Republican Infighting--Please!
Mountain XPress has a long, in-depth profile of the internecine blood-letting within the Buncombe County Republican Party that gave birth to the Carolina Stompers, a theocratic rump group led by young Chad Nesbitt (the step-son of Democratic N.C. state legislator Martin Nesbitt). The Stompers are out to grind down Democrats AND the current leaders of the local Republican Party, who tend to be Libertarian in perspective ("crackheads" is how Nesbitt describes them). Nesbitt's motivation in making himself such a pariah appears to be his unsuccessful campaign to become chair of the Buncombe County Republican Party early in 2007.
