We have already discussed on our site how the Democrats have a deep bench to compete for statewide elected offices in '08, who is going to take out the weakened Do-Nothing Dole on the left, how we want to have a 100 county strategy in North Carolina, and that Larry Kissell is running again to replace Flip-Floppin' Robin. The only void left to fill in keeping broad pressure on Republicans is finding good candidates in the other Congressional districts.
The biggest target has to be NC-5, where an underfunded candidate surged late to give Virginia Foxx fits (although to be fair, she caused most of the problems herself). Even hardcore, loyal Republicans from her district do not have anything good to say about her other than the fact that she is a Republican. I wonder if that if that draw decreases now that the Republicans are out of the majority, but either way we will have a demotivated opponent if we could find a candidate that could excite our base. I do not know enough about the area to comment on particular candidates, but it seems to be the best district to start recruiting a viable candidate in.
