n97128081749_6890On the steps of the state capital, former U.S. Senate candidate Ken Lewis threw his enthusiastic and full support behind Secretary of State Elaine Marshall in the North Carolina Senate race. Ken placed third in the May primary and his endorsement gives Elaine every bit of momentum going toward the June 22nd runoff.

"Elaine's work as Secretary of State and her historic electoral victories make her the strongest candidate in this run-off and in the general election. On the campaign trail she is tough, smart, and one of the hardest working candidates I've ever seen."

-- Ken Lewis

This endorsement is HUGE for Elaine as our campaign begins firing up our field efforts to finish off the runoff and start focusing on Burr. Ken is seen as a rising star in North Carolina politics and shocked all the pundits with his impressive showing in the primary. His endorsement gives our campaign a huge boost across the state, especially in Durham.

Join Ken Lewis in supporting Elaine Marshall by chipping in $5 or more to our campaign today!

Ken's endorsement comes off the heels of another HUGE endorsement from former Congresswoman Eva Clayton, previously a supporter of Ken's. Her endorsement is a sign that Elaine is uniting local Democrats.

“Elaine Marshall has built a career standing up for people. Over and over, she's taken on powerful interests against long odds and won. That's the type of fighter North Carolina needs to represent us in Washington today.

-- Eva Clayton

Both of these endorsements show increased support and momentum for Elaine which has led her runoff opponent to begin launching attacks against her in the last few days. In fact, in his desperation, Elaine's opponent attacked her in a statement where he declared victory in yesterday's primaries in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Arkansas. Apparently everything is good news for John McCain Cal Cunningham.

Join Ken Lewis, Eva Clayton, and thousands more in standing up for Elaine Marshall today!

Cunningham's desperate attacks aside, our campaign is fired up and ready to go to beat him again.

But we're going to need your help -- so if you can chip in $5 or more I promise we'll put it to good use:

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.
