Dear Candidate Shuler,

20. NORTH CAROLINA-11 (Taylor-R) Last Ranking: 14

Rumors abound that Shuler isn’t spending enough time on the trail.



i'm guessing that taylor's office was the rumor "source"

because, you know, feeding the national journal a big sugary spoonful of bullshit about your opponent's campaign strategy is so much easier than actually having to go out in public and run the risk of shaking the hands of the little people. right, chuck?

how did i ever become this cynical?

I don't know.

This has been posted here before and folks have come to Shuler's defense. But, the perception is still out there and in politics...

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I think it's more that other races surged ahead

Shuler surged earlier in May and there is just a natural lull while polls, etc aren't coming out. There are so many competitive races that the top 20 will change frequently as new polls are released in different areas.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.


Until some of these abounding rumors get sourced, and until I hear less about all the campaign appearances Shuler's making, this sentence will receive no creedence.

Rumors abound? Then give us even one frickin' source. One.
