    •  You've got to do better than tie there... (0+ / 0-)

      if you're going to have any chance in the state.  Sure, you won't see the big margins like in Durham, but any national Democrat wanting to win a statewide election in NC has to take Buncombe and Wake by at least 3-4%, because they're likely going to lose big in a lot of the rural counties.

        •  I am hopeful we will win in Wake in 2008 (0+ / 0-)

          Almost as many people in Wake County turned up to vote Democrat (164K) in the '08 primary as the number who turned out for Kerry in the General election in '04 (169K).  That's a lot of motivated people.
