n214444267139_1169It's been a whirlwind week for Elaine Marshall's campaign for Senate with endorsements and momentum coming from every direction. In the last 72 hours, Elaine was endorsed by two of the state's biggest newspapers, the Charlotte Teamsters, and Pam Spaulding from Pam's House Blend.

This week got even better when a slew of Orange County (Chapel Hill, NC) elected officials announced their support for Elaine Marshall. I've posted a full list below, but this is another sign of Elaine's incredible momentum.

More below the fold.

The following was released earlier today:

Leaders from Orange County came out in support of Secretary of State Elaine Marshall in her bid for U. S. Senate. Marshall received the endorsement of state Senator Ellie Kinnaird and Carrboro Mayor Mark Chilton as well as several county commissioners and virtually the entire Board of Aldermen in Carrboro.

“Elaine Marshall is a proven leader who is the strongest candidate to take on Sen. Richard Burr in November,” said Sen. Kinnaird. “She has the experience and backbone to stand up for North Carolina in the U. S. Senate.”

Other endorsers include:

Pam Hemminger, Orange County Board of Commissioners
Barry Jacobs, Orange County Board of Commissioners
Mike Nelson, Orange County Board of Commissioners
Joal Hall Broun, Carrboro Board of Aldermen
Dan Coleman, Carrboro Board of Aldermen
Jacquelyn Gist, Carrboro Board of Aldermen
Randee Haven-O’Donnell, Carrboro Board of Aldermen
Lydia Lavelle, Carrboro Board of Aldermen

This news also comes on the day that our campaign shattered our $20,000 online fundraising goal launched late last week. With the news that we've met our goal, we'll be hitting the airwaves next week so stay tuned to see our new ad. If you can help, please consider chipping in $5 or more to strengthen the buy!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
