Great late campaign news - Leading Conservative Papers Sing Fern's Praises (Plus endorsement)
Fern's campaign is delighted to report that while none of the Democrat-friendly big city daily papers owned by out of state media conglomerates have endorsed her (thank goodness), the Greensboro Rhino Times has been singing her praises and the Charlotte Rhino Times has endorsed her candidacy. The Rhino Times papers are written for real Republicans as opposed to RINOs (Republicans in name only), and Fern is delighted by their support.

She realizes she will have to vote on controversial issues, like the incentives bill that was passed over her strong objections in the December special session, but she believes most voters share her views.
