Sen. Jesse Helms died today. He was a staunch foe of communism, the United Nations’ worst enemy, and the conservative Republican the media loved to hate. The News and Observer has a chronology of his political career. Roger Clegg weighs in on the racial quota ad that every news account will mention.
The Jesse Helms Center website is here, with a signature quote:
In 1978 the Raleigh News & Observer dubbed me “Senator No.” It wasn’t meant as a compliment, but I certainly took it as one. – Sen. Jesse Helms
The Heritage Foundation pays tribute.
