The Cunningham campaign released Cal's first TV ad today, a biographical spot highlighting his biography and service record.

Elsewhere, Tom Jensen previewed his own new release, hinting that the numbers in the Democratic Primary for US Senate haven't changed much since last month's poll found the race tightening, with undecideds still outpacing all three leaders.

If you hear nothing but the first twenty-five words out of Rusty Triebert's mouth during the entire 2010 election cycle, you will at least understand how high the stakes are for the American people at this moment in our history. I know that someone in Richard Burr's office has the job of watching these videos. I hope they'll pass this one along to the Senator.

I'd like you to meet Lydia Mack, a third generation educator from Welcome, NC. Her job requires not only dedication, compassion and patience, but the ability to adapt quickly to the different needs of the dozens of elementary school students she teaches to read every year.

I'd like you to meet Lydia Mack, a third generation educator from Welcome, NC. Her job requires not only dedication, compassion and patience, but the ability to adapt quickly to the different needs of the dozens of elementary school students she teaches to read every year.

She's an innovator of the highest degree, and teachers like her all across this state are the point at which that spark of intelligence and innovation is passed from one generation to the next. So it's fitting that Cal has chosen a teacher's story as the way to introduce his Jobs Plan; because the best way to ensure that the next generation has the skills to enter the workforce tomorrow is to make sure that our teachers have the tools and support to do their jobs today.

Anti-Perdue signs at RJReynolds Tobacco HQ

Tired of getting kicked in both Raleigh and DC this week, R J Reynolds Tobacco Co allowed employees to post signs of frustration on the ground floor of corporate Headquarters in downtown Winston-Salem. The object of their collective ire? Governor Beverly Perdue.

Excerpted from Summer Lipford's online response to an article in the Winston-Salem Journal yesterday:

Contacting me 10 weeks after his funeral with a form letter of condolence does not constitute her assistance, assistance not that I asked for-- but begged for. I am not malicious, disgusting or dishonest. I had nothing to gain by telling my story. I am a mother who grieves every day for my child and prays no other mother has to walk my path, no other mother has to live with the lack of concern and disrespect shown to my son and myself by Virginia Foxx. As I have stated, none of this can change for me, but by electing Roy Carter I know it will not happen again.

This story was also the lead on WXII last night.

Further evidence that the tenacious Carter campaign is drawing blood in the besieged mountain communities of NC-05:

House Editor David Wasserman releases ratings changes in an additional 12 districts. The GOP internal "death list" memo, leaked to U.S.News and World Report's Paul Bedard, exposes just how white-knuckled some in the Republican conference are. At this point, the choice Republican strategists face is not whether to play offense or defense, but rather where it's still worth playing defense.

Ratings Changes:

NC-05 Virginia Foxx Solid Republican to Likely Republican

COME ON DCCC! I know you're paying attention to this race! We've got FIVE DAYS to make those last minute media buys!
