North Carolina's Political Class Privilege

North Carolina has become a land of undercard primary debates.  Carolina Journal reported the following:

Unless several of the front-running candidates change their minds, it looks as if several debates in primary races for statewide office will resemble the undercard debates in the GOP presidential contest. So far, Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr and Gov. Pat McCrory — along with Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, who’s running for governor — have rejected overtures from Time Warner Cable News to debate their primary opponents. Former Wake County state Rep. Deborah Ross, the presumed leader in the Democratic U.S. Senate primary, also has not agreed to participate in a debate sponsored by WRAL News. The Burr camp says he would join in debates during the general election campaign.

North Carolina doesn’t have white privilege, we have political class privilege.
