I just received this via e-mail:
National Republicans just launched their opening media attack, reserving more than $2.7 million in air time against Barbara Boxer, Patty Murray and Russ Feingold.
Our figures show that we can't win with this huge map unless we reach our grassroots donor goals. Missing goals means not competing in states where we have a fighting chance.
I mentioned the other day that I hadn't seen the DSCC mention one word about Elaine Marshall, and I still haven't. And I want some answers.
While perusing the DSCC's website, I came across this map, which appears to designate NC as a "targeted race in 2010", but if you click the "recent videos" tab, you'll see that no videos have been produced for our state.
And if you click on North Carolina and expand the "2010 race details", it talks about Kay beating Dole, talks about Richard Burr some, then at the bottom it has this:
Democrats chose Secretary of State Elaine Marshall as their nominee. Marshall is a proven reformer who has taken on special interests in her state and will be a strong challenger for Burr in November
Not if she doesn't get some help from you, and soon.
I asked this on another diary, and I'm asking it again: what is the status of the relationship between the Marshall campaign and the DSCC? Has either been approached by the other? If so, what was the result?
