North Carolina Democrats had a good year, but it could have been better.
Talkingaboutpolitics.com has learned (now, doesn’t that sound pretentious?) that Rahm Emmanuel’s vaunted Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee missed a chance to take out Robin Hayes.
A group of North Carolina Democrats were poised to raise last-minute money for Democrat Larry Kissell’s campaign, if the DCCC would come in too.
But Rahm said his pollster – who I still haven’t been able to identify – told him the race wasn’t winnable. So the DCCC stayed out.
Well, if Kissell does lose, it was by about 300 votes.
The last-minute money could have changed that.
