BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Rep. Mike McIntyre was in Brunswick County Tuesday afternoon to present a federal check to Brunswick EMC. We caught up with him to get his reaction to the state’s proposed map for congressional redistricting.

The legislature’s plan would change the 7th District, which serves southeastern North Carolina. The new map cuts Robeson County in half and adds Onslow and Carteret counties to the district, currently served by McIntyre.

McIntyre says he does not agree with the new proposed map.

“It’s clearly a brazen and blatant over attempt to under cut the very support in my own home town and my very neighborhood,” McIntyre said. “It’s disappointing that they would do this very same thing to other rural counties.”

McIntyre will return to Washington Wednesday and says he is against raising the debt ceiling and will vote against an increase.

McIntyre wasn’t upset when the democrats had the majority in the NC legislature and protected his seat when redistricting.

It looks like Representative McIntyre has simply been in office too long, his basking in the glory of his Morehead Scholarship to Carolina long outdated. He may appear smart, but when he took off for Europe and spent thousands of taxpayer dollars looking for information that is readily available on the internet, it showed he is now simply out of touch.
I voted for him last time with some major questions about his credibility. Now I have no doubt it is time for him to go…
We need balance in addressing our nations issues, not a hard-line Republican posing as a Democrat. And, I am a Republican who doesn’t
agree with the ultra-conservative movement and don’t want to see it in my supposedly Democratic Congressman either….

McIntyre is disappointed but so are taxpayers who disapproved of his recent trip to Europe at our expense.

i have alays voted for mike but i didnt last time because he is for the lumbees in my county. I’m not prejudiceor rasicm but he knew the new Va clinic in robeson county should have been put in lumberton. He secertly wanted it there but come out and said he didnt want it there. All i got to say is i feel no smphaty for him. He needs robeson county to win and he knows that maybe if he stop satisfying the lumbees in pembroke he wont win his seat. So i see you later mike and start taking care of the people here in robeson county. all the people not just one race.

Mike is upset. The new district deprives him of the support of the members of the Lumbee Tribe who bask in the annual distribution of Federal wampum fed to them by Chief Mike.

Now can he change districts to retain his power base? Or will he change his stripes to more conservative colors in order to appeal to the conservative majority in the new District 7?

Big decision to make.

Seems an excellent time for the Congressman to seek other employment. There is ample evidence that raising the debt ceiling is required. Any jerk can not support anything and travel!
