How You Do It

Stolen from Jim Geraghty's Campaign Spot:

A High-Caliber Candidate

My kind of fundraiser:

A man from Cumberland County who's running for Congress has his campaign locked-and-loaded.

Tim D'Annunzio — a former paratrooper — is a 30 year Raeford resident and conservative Republican running for the 8th District Congress seat currently held by Representative Larry Kissel.

Thursday night he held a fundraiser in Fayetteville at Jim's Guns. For a $25 donation, participants shot off MP-5s and Uzis. They also got a Carolina bar-b-que plate and sweet tea.

"It was awesome, it was great," Raeford resident Denyse Leake said.

More than 50 people showed up and registered for door prizes, which included an AR-15 machine gun.

"They are as fired up as they can be and as fired up as I've ever seen them," D'Annunzio said.

The man he seeks to replace, Larry Kissell, was elected in 2008, and was rated a B- by the NRA. This is a nominally Republican North Carolina district (PVI: R+2).

The first HD50B House candidate that offers this kind of fundraising activity has my vote. BBQ, sweet tea, and firearms - what's not to like?

For those of you hysterical libs out there, an AR-15 is not actually a "machine gun". It is merely a fine semi-automatic rifle.

It actually shoots a pretty small slug (about the same size as from a .22 plinking gun). You can take comfort in knowing that this makes it one of the greener firearms available in terms of lead emissions.

Save the planet - get an AR-15!
