Filing Strategery

We've still got the better part of a week to go, but does it strike anyone else as odd that our only US House incumbent who hasn't yet filed is one of the two most likely to be enjoying retirement in 2007? Charles Taylor hasn't filed yet.

Neither has NC Supremes candidate Rachel Hunter (a BlueNC advertiser), but in her case it looks to be a considered decision. She says:

I have not filed yet because I prefer to wait until the last minute to do it, simply as a matter of strategy. I am sure that others may prefer a different strategy and that is fine. But I prefer to wait. So I plan to file by closing time on February 28th and not before.

Who else are we missing?


Hope she gets there on time...

One of the people who advises Mom and has been in politics for many years made her quit waiting. He has said that it sends the wrong message to the voters. She used to like to wait until one of the last days too.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

If not Taylor...

If Taylor does not bother to run again, who would? Does he have any primary oponent at this point? He has made his intentions to run clear in every other way, hasn't he?


I look forward to reading that. Taylor still hasn't filed.
