WASHINGTON, DC (WWAY) — For North Carolina natives Brad and Dallas Woodhouse, bickering brotherhood is nothing new. But the two brothers, who live on opposite ends of the political spectrum, learned yesterday that they are never too old to be scolded by their mother. Even if it’s on live, national TV.
Brad and Dallas Woodhouse have made names for themselves in state and national politics Brad is the president of Americans United for Change and the former communications director for the Democratic National Committee. Dallas, a staunch Republican, is founder of Carolina Rising, a conservative policy group based in North Carolina, who also used to run the North Carolina branch of Americans for Prosperity.
The Woodhouses appeared together on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” to promote a documentary about political divisions in families called “Woodhouse Divided.”
As they argued over politics, the show took a call from a woman in Raleigh. It happened to be their mother Joy.
“Oh, God,” Dallas said as he buried his head in his hands. “It’s Mom.”
She admonished her grown sons for their bickering and told them she hoped they could get along by the time they came to see her for Christmas.
This morning, the brothers Woodhouse and their mother appeared on CNN, where Dallas was candid about Joy’s Christmas wish.
