Obama Plays For Win in North Carolina

With one month to go until the presidential election, the campaign for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is asking S.C. volunteers to head to North Carolina, where polling shows Obama and his Republican rival John McCain in a dead heat.

A win in N.C. would deliver the presidency to Obama, according to a letter sent to S.C. Obama volunteers from Chris Lewis, North Carolina’s field director. Meanwhile, South Carolina is not in play, according to polling that gives McCain a sizable lead here.

But S.C. Democratic leaders insist Obama is not conceding the Palmetto State.

“(The N.C. Obama camp) is running a heavy duty campaign up there, and they need every worker they can get,” said Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the S.C. Democratic Party.

I am dismayed at the lack of campaigning I see by the McCain Campaign in North Carolina. They seem more focused on events for insiders only...and it is very possible that he could lose North Carolina.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
