Most intriguing of Gov.-elect Roy Cooper’s first administration hires is Brad Adcock, a 30-year lobbyist for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, as legislative director.

Interesting that the News & Observer speculates that Adcock will “likely have a contentious relationship with the Republican-led House and Senate,” considering the fact that it’s the eeevil insurance companies teaming up with the eeevil Republicans to deny North Carolinians affordable health insurance. Or so I thought.
