States of the Union: North Carolina

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Since January, 165,000 people have registered to vote in North Carolina’s May 6 primary. While the focus will be on the presidential race, there is also a race for governor. David Ingram is a staff writer for The Charlotte Observer, covering North Carolina politics from the state capital bureau. He explains what matters most to voters in the Tar Heel State, and why the state’s Republican party now finds itself at odds with John McCain over a new ad.

States of the Union fact of the week: The first gold nugget found in the US was found in Cabarrus County, North Carolina in 1799.

what is clinton doing to win the black vote? she got a sad and paltry 8% of the black vote in pennsylvania. why aren't we talking about this? while obama keeps winning voters in various demographics, she is gaining no ground with the black voters.
