McIntyre campaign: 'No comment' on Breazeale endorsement


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A day after one of the more bizarre endorsements in recent political history, the campaign that received the endorsement responded. Kind of.

WWAY tried contacting Rep. Mike McIntyre and his campaign yesterday after former opponent Will Breazeale, a Republican who had attacked McIntyre during their 2008 race for the 7th District seat in Congress and leading up to the Republican primary this year, said he now supports the seven-term incumbent Democrat. We did not receive any response from our calls yesterday.

Today, WWAY political reporter Kevin Wuzzardo called McIntyre's office in Washington again and left a voicemail for his Chief of Staff Dean Mitchell asking that either Mitchell or the Congressman call the station. This afternoon, McIntyre's Campaign Field Director Justin Smith responded with an e-mail that said, "With regard to the voicemail request you left Dean Mitchell, we have no comment."

McIntyre easily beat Breazeale during the 2008 election. This year Breazeale lost to fellow Republican Ilario Pantano by 17 percentage points in May's primary.

McIntyre and Pantano will hold the second of four pre-election debates Friday night at James Sprunt Community College in Kenansville.

A "no comment" says it all.

The "no comment" from the McIntyre's camp says it all. He doesn't want any part in Breazeale's crybaby attacks on Pantano. Breazeale is one of those people that become a legend in their own mind.

McIntyre disses Sleazeale


This was the funniest thing I've read all day. Poor Will, he can't get no respect. Not even when he's licking the shoes of his enemies.


Go away Will

Will Breazeale must really feel like a fool AGAIN !!!

Mike McIntyre's office won't even comment on his endorsement.

Go away Will just go away and stop making a fool out of yourself..

Can't comment

They can not comment,
They can not catch their breath
From laughing so hard...
