Swing State Project is declaring that Hagan will run for Senate.
Two well-placed sources, independent of each other, have contacted the Swing State Project to let us know that NC State Senator Kay Hagan (D-Greensboro) has reconsidered her earlier decision and will challenge Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole.
I dont think anyone is surprised by this. I will say that I am disappointed.
This race is supposed to be about beating Elizabeth Dole. From now until May it will be about what the future of our party will look like.
I am going to be supporting Jim Neal in this primary. As many of you know I am ultimately concerned with economic issues. It is why I am working for who I am, and it is what I believe in. The budget process of 2007 in NC matched with Jim's live blogging session means that I will be supporting Jim, ultimately because I do not trust Hagan's judgement on the issue of equal economic oppurtunity.
I believe that this race will tell us a great deal about the state of North Carolina as a whole, and this primary will tell us a great deal about our party, and our community.
Today being the 5th anniversary of the death of Paul Wellstone I ask that all of us fight for what is right, and for what we believe in. Compromise and moderation do not win elections. Courage does.
BlueNC is dedicated to freedom and fairness for the people of North Carolina. If you share that vision, welcome. If your intention is to disrupt our efforts, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
