Join Congressman Rahm Emanuel in supporting Larry Kissell in his renewed bid to oust Robin Hayes from congress. The fundraiser will be held this Saturday at NCDP Headquarters in Raleigh from 3:30 - 4:30pm. Tickets are $200 per person or $330 per couple.
Hm. I wonder what those words will taste like in November. Ashes, I suppose. That sentence is from an article in The Hill all about Shuler's run for the 11th. Also in there:
At the end of the third quarter, Shuler had $248,957 in the bank while Taylor had just $19,369, according to Federal Election Commission reports.
During the same period, Shuler raised $263,642; Taylor took in $134,791. In recent months, prominent Democratic Reps. Sherrod Brown (Ohio), who is running for Senate, Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) donated to the Shuler campaign.
