      We lost a good public servant this year in Richard Moore, who ran against Bev Perdue in the primary. Moore would also be a logical choice to run against Burr, he's very popular as well.

      for the congressional districts; sadly we don't have enough Brad Millers and Larry Kissels to go around. In this area (triad), Howard Coble (NC 6th) and Virginia Foxx (NC 5th) both deserve serious challengers. Foxx had one this year but still won; Coble's challenger barely had a pressence - although it was miles ahead of the Democratic candidate from 2006. We can, and should, do better, especially as a follow-up to this year's blue tide.

      Note to NC Democratic party: Find a solid candidate (someone who really wants the job and will work to get it) for the NC 6th district and I will personally work my ass off to get her or him elected.

        My wife's family are all from G'boro and they still vote for "Howard". Even though they voted Dem the rest of the way down the ticket.

          nice enough man, but he isn't doing anything good for us in Washington. I really believe a good challenger would end his tenure.
