Elaine Marshall appears to have received a bounce in support following
her Democratic Primary runoff victory Tuesday and is now even with
incumbent Republican Richard Burr in North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race.
Cal Cunningham is running for the US Senate seat held by Richard Burr.
I've never quite bought the Burr-is-easy-pickings meme. Not to say he's unbeatable, of course, and I know the polls say the Democrats have a good shot, but I just don't sense the same weakness I did with Liddy Dole. Burr's been much more visible in the state than was Dole, and he's running in what looks to be a better year for Republicans than 2008.
