Unless there's a super secret plan being hatched for Elaine to come out swinging, it looks to me like Charlie Cook may have nailed the sad story for all to see.
“Richard Burr’s numbers are very, very, very weak. You can have a daylong symposium on why his numbers are so weak. And he’s a very lucky man,” said Cook. “The Democratic Party can’t afford to mount a challenge down here. In another year, another environment, he might not be coming back to Washington, at least not as a senator.”
Is that right, Elaine? Has the DSCC, despite all their happy talk, blown your campaign off? Because if it's true, then you need to start running not just against Do Nothing Burr, but also against the brain-dead Democratic Party establishment.
People who read this website have contributed many tens of thousands of dollars to your campaign. We deserve a clear answer to this question. Don't jerk us around just because the DSCC is jerking you around. Not at this late date.
