A note about North Carolina BBQgate…

Cal Cunningham’s BBQ-gate tweet last night is about more than just barbecue.

“No self-respecting son of Lexington would ever [call grilling barbecue],” Cunningham told The News & Observer. But that’s exactly what he did, and we figured out where he got it from: his benefactor, liberal New York Senator Chuck Schumer.

BBQ-gate is just the latest example of how Cunningham will do or say whatever the national Democrats who recruited him and have kept him locked up in Schumer’s “windowless basement” tell him to. Raising taxes? Cunningham has done it and will do it again. Eliminating the filibuster? Cunningham’s wanted to for over a decade.

“The very existence of North Carolina and American barbecue is on the ballot this November,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “If Cal Cunningham gives Chuck Schumer the Senate Majority, it will not only clear the path for higher taxes and the elimination of employer-based health insurance, but also a Green New Deal and the left’s efforts to force drastic reductions in meat consumption. North Carolinians can’t let that happen.”
