91 Days: Nearly 500 Doors Knocked During 92 Days to Kay Canvass

Last night, supporters of Kay Hagan knocked on nearly 500 doors during the 92 Days to Kay Canvass. Supporters canvassed communities across the state, from Asheville to Greenville -- and even in Elizabeth Dole's very own Salisbury.

Today marks 91 days until Election Day and our second day profiling another reason for why Dole is wrong for NC:

DAY 91: TRADE

While Kay has unrolled her plan to make trade work first and foremost for North Carolina, Elizabeth Dole has voted with President Bush 92% of the time, supporting his failed trade policies which have left North Carolina’s textile and furniture industry struggling to stay competitive. Elizabeth Dole and President Bush pushed to expand the NAFTA model to Central America, with Dole voting for CAFTA twice, saying it would bring jobs to North Carolina. Really? In 2005, Bush visited a Belmont, North Carolina textile plant operated by R.L. Stowe Mills in order to urge the House of Representatives to pass CAFTA. In 2007, that plant closed permanently. Today, Kay is scheduled to tour a Taylorsville factory where she’ll discuss her plan to keep good jobs here in North Carolina.

Does McCain actually detest his wife?

Why doesn't someone stop this idiot? This is all over the net right now, so most of you have probably seen it, but I pulled it from Wonkette. Anyone who wasn't quite sure he actually called his wife a cunt might want (or not want) to see how he treated her at a recent event.

Here's another bad moment for his campaign.

Obama and Young Voters

Gary Pearce on Barak Obama and young voters:

An older Democrat asked me how to get younger votes who are excited about Barack Obama to vote a straight Democratic ticket.

Thanks to past Democratic legislatures, the ballot makes this hard. You have to vote for Obama, then go to a separate place to vote a straight ticket. That was a good idea when John Kerry and Michael Dukakis were the candidates. This year, maybe not.

I’m too old to answer the question. So I asked a 19-year-old committed Democrat. His answer:

92 Days: Why do you think Elizabeth Dole is Wrong for NC?

With 92 days left in this election season, we’re kicking off our “92 Days, 92 Ways” campaign today, highlighting the 92 ways in which Elizabeth Dole is wrong for North Carolina.

Elizabeth Dole votes with President Bush 92% of the time, supporting his failed economic policies, putting special interests before working families.

In honor of this milestone, Kay Hagan supporters will be canvassing in just about an hour all across the state talking to voters about how Washington is broken and what Kay will do to fix it. To find out more, visit www.kayhagan.com.
