‘If a teacher at my son’s school treated one of his students this way . . . he would be suspended.’

Renee Ellmers, the Republican candidate in North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district, has a new video response to Bob Etheridge after his altercation.

She calls on him to explain why he did what he did, and apologize in person to these two students, which may be a bit difficult, as their identity is not yet known.

If I were advising the candidate, I would have added a line about a frustrating sense of entitlement and disrespect for the public among current incumbent members of Congress, but maybe that’s just my preference . . .
