Under the Dome

Where are the Republicans?

Republican volunteers were scarce at voting sites today.

At four polling places in Raleigh today, reporters saw nobody from the Republican party or any Republican candidates greeting voters outside the voting stations. Clusters of Obama volunteers worked the crowds, handing voters cheat sheets of all the Democratic candidates.

At Leroy Martin Middle School on Ridge Road, Republican volunteers had dropped off a goodie bag of treats and stickers for their party's volunteers expected to work that station. By lunch time, no one had come to claim the bag or advocate for Republican candidates. A message left with the state party was not immediately returned.

One Republican volunteer was spotted at Olive Chapel Elementary -- of course, matched by a Democratic volunteer.

Without the benefit of redistricting, your candidates seem to have failed badly. Did you forget to tell them to vote for President?
