Why won't the DSCC support Elaine Marshall for U.S. Senate? Things have changed a lot here in NC since she last ran for national office in 2002. Who would have guessed that "Blue NC" would be true? That a black community organizer with the middle name ... would win in North Carolina? Or that our governor and one of our senators would be a woman?
Elaine is a terrific speaker, smart as they come, warm, funny, and much more in touch with the Democratic pulse. She's well known in the grassroots community, which will do major legwork to get people to the polls. Her experience as Secretary of State should help attract moderate Republicans (both of them) and many unaffiliated voters.
I don't want to have to pick between Burr and Burr Lite next November.
