Ashvegas has the scoopiness:
News was made on Local Edge Radio 880 AM on Friday. I was sitting in with the show hosts, Blake and Lesley, when they had David Young, chairman of the North Carolina Democratic Party, call in to chat. The hot topic was whether U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler would run decide to take on U.S. Sen. Richard Burr in next year’s election.
Young confirmed what’s been flying around for about a week: that Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee officials have been going after Shuler hard. And Young went a step further, saying “my gut tells me” that Shuler will run.
