Heritage Action vs. Richard Burr: (Showdown at the Twitter Corral?) | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's note: Brant Clifton stays within sniffing distance of our two U.S. Senators in his "bare knuckles" Conservative online publication known as The Daily Haymaker.

    That feisty bunch at Heritage Action has been shooting with both barrels at The Tar Heel State's US Senators. Heritage Action often gets dismissed as a GOP group, but their people are giving Republican Richard Burr as much -- if not more -- HELL as Democrat Kay Hagan.

    North Carolina-based Heritage Action leaders took Hagan to task in a Twitter town hall she hosted. Those same activists are frustrated with Burr, the Republican, for his pro-gun control votes and what they see as an overall lack of conservative leadership on his part. Heritage Action issued a challenge to Burr to participate in a Twitter town hall with them. Heritage Action spokeswoman Ginny Quaglia's comments suggest that the state's senior senator is not receptive to engaging these rather upset conservative activists:

    It has been since April 23rd when we requested a town hall with Senator Burr on his cloture vote on gun control. He was contacted in every possible way. Since there has been no reply from his office, we will be holding our Twitter Town Hall with or without him. Since he has chosen to ignore many NC constituents, we must follow through with our action and hold him accountable.

    The town hall will start on Twitter at 11 AM on Wednesday, May 8th. Log on to Twitter and search for the hashtag #AskBurr. Quaglia is encouraging activists to exercise restraint, civility and manners when tweeting questions and comments to the senator during the event.
