Elections Matter, Even at the NCGOP State Convention

Candidate information

Now is the time again!!  iCaucus is looking for volunteers to participate in the interviews, and ask precise, intelligent questions on the calls.  Everyone can register to vote for candidate endorsement.  Register now with iCaucus (the process is cumbersome).

NCGOP Chairman

Jack Brosch

Claude Pope

  • Accepted iCaucus vetting request, 4/19/13.
  • In an effort to sort out the political Popes in NC: The John Locke Foundation is headed by John Hood. Art Pope and John Pope co-founded the JLF. Art Pope co-founded the NC Libertarian Party in 1976, but became an active Republican in the late 70′s. Art Pope is Pat McCrory’s newly appointed state Budget Director. Claude Pope Jr is a distant cousin of Art Pope. But what I don’t know is if Claude Pope Sr or Jr is running for NCGOP Chair.

NCGOP Vice Chairman

Glen Bradley

  • Has completed his iCaucus CQQ (test).  Awaiting his interview, as of 4/19/13.

  • NC House member elected 2010 and defeated in 2012 after the NCGOP re-drew his district as a sure loser for Republicans.

Joyce Krawiec

Dave Goetze

  • Declined 2 invitations to accept iCaucus vetting.
  • His reason for declining, 4/19/13 11:00pm, “While I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to participate, I will politely decline. For the mainstream conservatives in the party, the lack of focus on the social issues provided by the iCaucus vetting process fails to draw the distinction between candidates I believe is most important to this party at this time for these positions. It falls short of addressing critical platform issues not encompassed in your subject areas of exploration that provide at best an incomplete assessment of suitability and at worst, a misleading one since one could agree completely with all of your positions and yet differ widely from the adopted platform on other issues. I do not challenge you or your organization’s right to have an opinion on the candidates or to express it publicly, but I do reject any notion that any group outside of the party should play any role (de facto, ex-officio, implicit or otherwise) beyond a statement of endorsement in the selection of candidates wholly within the party since it represents a trespass on the sovereignty of the party to determine its own rules and procedures for electing candidates for office in it, and for whom is best qualified to serve it in those capacities. I sincerely hope that all of the duly elected delegates to the convention will exercise their own due diligence in vetting all of the candidates before casting their vote, as is the history, custom, tradition and policy of the party. My best, Dave”

About Christine

I believe in the CONSERVATIVE principles and values of the Republican Party as they are written, and not how they are currently practiced by today's RINO's. Smaller government, lower taxes, more personal responsibility, states' rights, free market capitalism, and less government intrusion in our lives!

  1. My father, Claude Pope, Sr. passed away on May 3, 1989. He was also active in the GOP and served On Governor Martin’s cabinet as Secretary of Commerce.

    I served as Vice Chair of the Wake GOP from 1991-1993, and as Chairman 2009-2010. During my tenure as Chairman, we flipped an 8-1 minority school board to a 5-4 majority in 2009, and then flipped the County Commission from a 3-4 minority to a 4-3 majority in 2010. In both elections we won 4 of 4 races on the ballot, and raised record amounts of money for any county party in te state. I resigned my chairmanship after the 2010 election & moved to Bald Head Island, and acquired the Maritime Market.

    I completed the iCaucus questionnaire & now looking forward to the interview.
