Please watch the First 15 seconds of this video.

If you hear nothing but the first twenty-five words out of Rusty Triebert's mouth during the entire 2010 election cycle, you will at least understand how high the stakes are for the American people at this moment in our history. I know that someone in Richard Burr's office has the job of watching these videos. I hope they'll pass this one along to the Senator.

Cal Cunningham: Want to Filibuster Progress? "Bring your 40 friends and go for it."

"If you want to filibuster and stop the progress of the country, I think you ought to come to the floor of the U.S. Senate, and bring your 40 friends, and let's bring the cots in there, let's keep the lights on all night, and if all you've got is read the dictionary into the record -- go for it, man -- but let's hear why you think it's important to gum up the works of the country." - Cal Cunnngham

VIDEO: Cal's Plan Prioritizes Green Energy Jobs

Jim Tarleton has spent his entire career in the field of domestic energy production; first as a gulf coast oilman, then as a uranium miner in the southwest. He has seen those industries rise and fall on the waves of competition, supply, tariffs and trade deals. He has arrived early to a new American energy economy: renewable natural gas produced from the food waste our cities and towns throw away by the ton every day.

New website, new video: CalforNC.com

Fellow BlueNC'ers, Cal's official campaign website, CalForNC.com is up and running. We've paid close attention to what this primary season's voters are asking for and it's all there: detailed positions on issues, dynamic content, opportunities for involvement, calendars and news feeds. This site ought to be a great way to to keep in touch with our campaign, keep up with the latest news about the race, and keep our grassroots outreach efforts growing.

Please take a moment to check out CalForNC.com -- and most importantly -- leave your comments here so we can make sure that it's working for you.

We've also released the second part of Cal's Jobs Plan: "Jump-Starting Private Sector Growth" and a new "Voices of North Carolina" video to accompany it.

The Cunningham Jobs Plan: "It starts in the classroom."

I'd like you to meet Lydia Mack, a third generation educator from Welcome, NC. Her job requires not only dedication, compassion and patience, but the ability to adapt quickly to the different needs of the dozens of elementary school students she teaches to read every year.

She's an innovator of the highest degree, and teachers like her all across this state are the point at which that spark of intelligence and innovation is passed from one generation to the next. So it's fitting that Cal has chosen a teacher's story as the way to introduce his Jobs Plan; because the best way to ensure that the next generation has the skills to enter the workforce tomorrow is to make sure that our teachers have the tools and support to do their jobs today.

Harvey Gantt: "We DID win."

Harvey Gantt, twice nominated by North Carolina Democrats to run against Jesse Helms for the US Senate, speaks to the ultimate legacy of those two historic races. His words here represent one of those rare occurances: a beautiful, gracious moment in the political evolution of our state. Thank you, Mr. Gantt.
