Democratic Senate candidate Elaine Marshall is beginning to get some help from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
That was clear last week, when Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow appeared at a fundraiser in Charlotte with Marshall, reports Rob Christensen.
“I want to convey very, very strong unified support for Elaine,” Stabenow said Friday at a luncheon at the Duke Mansion.
The DSCC backed Cal Cunningham in the Democratic primary, deciding that Marshall was not the strongest candidate.
“We didn't get it right in the primary,” Stabenow said. “We made a mistake. ...The people of North Carolina know the right person."
But Stabenow promised things would be different this fall, saying “we are all in.”
But the level of support is still not clear.
Stabenow said Republican Sen Richard Burr was part of the Republican effort to try block every initiative put forward by President Barack Obama, from providing equal pay for equal work for women, to expanding health insurance to children, to making more loans available to small busiensses.
“She is running against someone who is part of the just say no caucus,” Stabenow said.
