BlueNC slacks off.
Our apologies. What with elections coming up and school hitting hard for those of BlueNC still in school (I don't miss midterms in the least), we have slacked off at the worst possible time.
The election is two weeks from Tuesday, and we've been MIA. That's a shame, considering there's definitely no shortage of things to cover.
Patsy Keever is only down by two, according to a Feldman Group poll. This, only days after her opponent, Republican Rep. Charles Taylor failed to show up for a forum discussion between the two. Throw on top nearly 15,000 new registrants out there, and Taylor's gotta be running scared.
In addition, WRAL5 blogged the gubernatorial debate!!! Smooth move, and they did it pretty adeptly. Comments enabled, frequent updates, good points made. Too bad the Libertarian Party (and one misinformed, wrongheaded Ballantine voter) ganged up on the comments section - it was as close as they could get to the debate.
Speaking of Ballantine, see this. Or this. Or especially THIS (registration required). Summary: Ballantine is sketchy.
Of interest: Stateline does a nice piece on the new digital political campaign.
We're back. We swear.
