It’s A RaceBy
I was feeling kinda blue about the NC Senate race. I’d been thinking that the prolonged primary battle between Marshall and Cunningham would drain so much money that the eventual winner would have too big a mountain to climb against a well financed Richard Burr. That’s still a concern, but it’s a lot easier to start at a monetary deficit if you’ve got great numbers like those found in the most recent Public Policy Polling report. Excerpt:
“Elaine Marshall and Cal Cunningham have both gained ground on Richard Burr after building up their exposure during the Democratic primary campaign. Burr is now in a weaker position than Elizabeth Dole was at the same point in the election cycle two years ago.
Burr leads Marshall by just a single point, 43-42, and is up 44-39 on Cunningham. Dole led Kay Hagan 48-43 immediately after the primary in 2008.”
