|Chuck Edward and Christian Reagan
According to reporter Tom Fiedler, who was there in Clay County, "Edwards exploded":
“I lived in mill housing; I lived in trailers and I worked my tail off all my life, just as my mother and my father did,” Edwards said, staring at Reagan.
“There is nothing ‘elite,’ ” he said, almost spitting the word out, “about this person who has asked to go to Congress to represent you because I understand how hard people in these mountains work and what it takes to live the American dream.
“I totally reject anyone who says that I am ‘elite,’ " Edwards sputtered. “My wife and I once went and found 83 cents so we could buy kerosene for our house so we could keep our house warm through the night and I could get paid the next day. That is not elite.”
Make no mistake: both Edwards and Reagan are MAGAts to the hilt (or to the crown of their hat), so there's really not a dime worth of difference between the two of them. Sorry, 11th District!For years Virginia Foxx has deflected criticisms of her wealth, which seems to have accumulated exponentially since she took elected office, by loudly proclaiming how poor she was growing up. Poor as she was, she never learned humility or kindness, rather like the rich fast-food king from the 11th CD.
Edwards has promised he won't be appearing alongside Christian Reagan again before the March 5 primary.
