We had a great crowd come and experience the first of the Hornet’s Nest Monthly Happy Hours for 2021 - at Middle James Brewery. Ken May, our Hornet's Nest Republican Men's Club Vice President, hosted this event, and we were honored that the Honorable Jeff Carpenter, NC Court of Appeals served as the MC of the event.
It was also great that our US Congressman, the Honorable Dan Bishop (R-D9) was there as well. Thank you to all the judges shown above who attended, as well as our the Honorable Paulina Havelka. A special welcome to the only Mecklenburg County Republican serving as a NC Superior Court Judge, the Honorable Casey Viser.
Too many patriots to name, so we will just thank everyone for attending!!
It is that time of year. The Republican Party organizational meetings are right around the corner. We have heard a great deal over the last couple weeks about the direction of the Republican Party. Now is the time to have your voice heard on the direction of the party.
Dear Founding Member:
We would like to provide a brief update on your Club’s activities. HNRMC club was founded in July of 2019 and we quickly grew to about 130 members making us North Carolina’s largest federated men’s Republican club.
Our two inaugural events in 2019 had "sold out" capacity attendance and featured a majority of our local, state, federal, and judicial candidates and sitting public officials in addition to party leaders and policy enthusiasts.
And then came COVID……...
While we couldn't have those large scale events in person, it did not stop us from pursuing our mission and vision. Your club actively vetted all the primary candidates and provided endorsements where appropriate in accordance with our By-Laws. Members actively provided support by door knocking, voter registration events, fundraising, and providing support at the polls on election day.
Our virtual summer series on Thursday nights featured several great programs including Representative Bishop, Senator Tillis, Governor McCrory and Amy O. Cooke (The Right AOC) of the John Locke Foundation as well as many of our Council of State candidates.
Our website, https://hornets-nest-rmc.com/, is the envy of state clubs and includes bios and active links for Republicans running for judicial, local, statewide, and national offices. It also includes information on the Hornet’s Nest Board and leadership. Speaking of leadership there have been a few changes. With founding Director David Willis’s election to the General Assembly, he is no longer serving on the board but remains an active member. We have added former Representative Craig Horn to the board and are very excited about the contributions he will make.
Covid restrictions prevented our "in-person" quarterly gatherings in 2020 and that continues in 2021. With accelerated vaccinations, we hope to resume our quarterly dinners by the third quarter..
We will again take an active role in both our primary and general election races for local candidates this year. A large number of municipal, county, and school board races are on the November 2021 ballot. Many of those races may be deferred until 2022 due to unavailable census dated required for redistricting. That gives us some extra time to develop and support candidates! We need to win those races!
Without the ability to conduct our quarterly meetings in person, our only revenue source is our annual dues. Since most members had joined by September of last year, we had set October 1 as the due date for our annual 2020 membership dues. We have now extended that to March 2021.
Like our sister clubs in the region, we welcome all registered Republicans to join us in membership. We have two classifications of dues paying members. Registered Republican men, with full voting privileges, membership dues will again be $50. For our women colleagues who join us as associate members, those does remain at $30.00. As we have a number of Independent or Unaffiliated voters in our ranks, we have added and additional category just for you - Honored Guest. We included a link to make it easy to pay online. Please pay dues online here Dues
Yep, 2020 was an interesting year. Not the one any of us planned for sure. But we managed through it and will do it again in 2021.
No matter where you (we) are on the spectrum, we are all simply Republicans. We won't agree on every issue. And that's OK!!! What we can agree on, however, is that our belief in capitalism, fiscal responsibility, smaller government, and an adherence to the basic tenets of our constitution bind us together against socialism, communism, and an intrusive government slowly hell bent on removing our time-tested constitutional rights. So please stay with us and help us fight the good fight!
A few closing “asks” from your leadership team:
Thank you for your support,Your Hornet’s Nest Executive Board.
Thank you for your commitment to the conservative cause.

It is open to all Republican men in the Southern Piedmont region of North Carolina. “Our Mission is simple” says Dan Barry its new President, we aim to recruit, develop, support and elect conservative Republicans to Public Office.” The 2020 Election Cycle is incredibly important, and we plan to work tirelessly alongside the North Carolina Republican Party and its affiliates from across the region including MeckGOP and UnionGOP to push our candidates on to victory.
The inaugural leadership group is made of GOP leaders from across the region. In addition to Dan Barry are former County Commissioner Matthew Ridenhour, Board of Education Member Sean Strain, Activists Kevin Abplanalp, John Powell, Ken May, David Willis, Mike Hicks, Bob Wilberger, Stewart Taylor and Steve Huff.
The Hornet’s Nest Republican Men’s Club “HNRMC” officially received its credentials on December 14, 2019. Our official status increased the size of the state federation by 25% and we are the largest club in the state. Way to go team! HNRMC President Daniel Barry with NCFRM President Bob Pruett.
The objectives of the NCFRM is to further the principles of the North Carolina Republican Party and to promote Republican candidates in all elections.
The Mission of this Federation shall be: We, the North Carolina Federation of Republican Men, shall work to promote our conservative values by working together to create fellowship among Republican men, supporting the principles, objectives, and platform of the Republican Party, fostering strong relationships with the community through demonstrations of citizenship and positive minded practices, educating our members on how they can participate in the electoral process, supporting our constituent clubs and always working to elect Republicans across this great state while understanding nothing can be accomplished without God’s help and guidance.
The NCFRM is striving to be an authoritative voice within the NCGOP.
The NCFRM aims to be a group that conservative candidates look to for endorsements in order to help secure them a win.
The NCFRM wants to have enough presence that the general assembly will listen to what the NCFRM say and want to remain in the NCFRM good graces.
The NCFRM wants our representatives in Washington to seek out NCFRM’s support and opinions on the matters important to all North Carolina residents.
Dan Forest, who served as the 34th Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina (2013 - 2021), shares his thoughts about the Hornet's Nest Republican Men's Club.
