Final Fundraising Push for Kissell, Adame & other NC Dem Challengers

The presidential candidates are busy maxing out their donors and making it hard on all down ticket candidates to raise money in the process. That's why I'm appealing to you one last time before the end of the quarter to help the challengers in our North Carolina congressional races. I know the incumbents are having a hard time raising money as well, but they have far more contacts and larger donor bases, so I will leave them out of this particular plea for funds.

Foxx's Fealty Foreshadows Fall?

RealValues points out a Winston-Salem piece about Democratic chances of picking up some US House seats next fall. Here's what NCDP Chair Jerry Meek had to say aobut NC-5: "One thing voters don't want right now are elected officials who will toe the party line in Washington. That's what Virginia Foxx does." That's true, but there are many months before November 2006 in which that can change; with Foxx—as with Taylor and Hayes—the pressure must stay on.

More from the piece [emphasis mine]:

Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., is the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. It's his job to recruit candidates nationwide to run against Republican incumbents. He said he has talked with two prospective candidates to run against Foxx - including Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines.
