  •  One advantage she doesn't have (0+ / 0-)

    Succeeding a two term governor of her party is a negative, generally.  Only if he was "Raygun" popular would it be a help.

    But, I agree.  She's running a terrible campaign.  Most of her ads (where I am anyway) have been about school vouchers.  That's not an issue that's going to win her this election.  Now that new stem cell ad, I like.  But she should have had that up earlier.  And I always thought she had the least chance of winning (among her, Hagan and Obama).  Of course, I voted for Moore and Neal in the primaries, so what do I know?

    •  I voted for Moore, too (0+ / 0-)

      The thing that absolutely killed me during the primary - and this goes for both Perdue and Moore - was the deeply personal attacks that flew back and forth.

      It reflected very poorly on the Democratic Party.  Here we have the sitting Lt. Gov. and Treasurer in the same party, attacking each other for being corrupt, incompetent, racist, and stupid.

      Why should any independent or Republican ever vote for our party's candidates, if what we say about each other is that we're corrupt and incompetent?

      I believe that primary has really set the tone for a lot of the general election.  Whoever won - Moore or Perdue - their reputation was going to be badly damaged.

      •  "change" (0+ / 0-)

        I am strongly considering voting for Pat McCrory.  Bev Perdue is an embarrassment.  If McCrory can turn NC into a big version of Charlotte I think we have a lot to look forward to.  With Perdue in office we have a lot of gaffes and corruption to look forward to.

        I guess I'm a "reverse Dixiecrat".  I tend to go left on national races and center/right on locals.
