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.
The Asheville Citizen-Times is kind enough to point out the difference between working on solutions to a problem and simply throwing money at it. Unsurprisingly, the 11th Congressional District's Charles Taylor is in the borrow-and-spend camp.
The best starting point toward a sane immigration policy is the bill introduced last spring by U.S. Sens. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and John McCain, R-Ariz., an odd couple if there ever was one. The bill has something for everyone, ranging from a border study to more money for English language instruction.
The 3rd quarter FEC filings are out and there is some very good news from NC's 11th district. Heath Shuler (D), the former NFL QB and real estate developer, far out paced ethically charged incumbent Charles Taylor (R) in fundraising.
It's early to start calling races, but I have very high hopes for both Shuler in the 11th and Dunn in the 8th. Even if the Dems can't take back the house all at once, I won't complain about a mostly-blue NC delegation.
