  •  Duncan won't run. Wingnut Frank Roche will... (0+ / 0-)

    ... from Ellmers' right. Roche is a local media personality from the FM station that was calling itself Rush Radio for a while. I don't think he'll pose much of a threat honestly.

    I also think this is more competitive than it appears. We won't win with the type of progressive I'd love to have, but a decent moderate who can stand for basic Dem values on earned benefits, education, tax fairness, clean environment, etc.  while still being able to be pro-business and pro-military (Cumberland Co. - Ft. Bragg) could win this seat.

    It'll take money and connections too, so we may have to hold our noses a bit.

    But, if that gets us one seat closer to "Speaker Pelosi", and Crisco's not another Mike McIntyre, I can live with it.
