But not much. The 168 members of the RNC grappled with the consequences of losing the presidential race, losing the Senate and losing seats in the House....
As a Charlottean, I appreciated the focus on McCrory. My wife and I knocked on over 800 doors for him and Romney and we're damn proud to have helped turn NC red again (and that despite the fact that Obama had an even bigger turnout in NC in '12 than he did in '08 - the only swing state in which that happened. And yet we still kicked his rear here!). We're optimistic about McCrory, but will definitely hold his feet to the fire. Right now we're pushing McCrory to refuse both setting up ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid expansion. Capitulating on one or both will kill this state financially. Gov McCrory, if you're reading this, JUST SAY NO!
The Republican National Committee chose to hold its recent winter meeting in Charlotte because North Carolina was a rare bright spot in last year's presidential election. Although it was the high-profile site of the Democratic National Convention, North Carolina became one of just two states won by Barack Obama in 2008 that went for Mitt Romney in 2012. (The other was Indiana.) So being in North Carolina made Republicans feel a little better.
