How worried is Sen. Richard Burr about his primary?
Well, his election night party will be held at a Washington (that's D.C., not N.C.) fundraiser. The "Max-out" dinner is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Trattoria Alberto's. The idea, according to an announcement for the event, is to get contributors to max out before the primary season ends. The event features special guest Sen. Saxby Chambliss, a Georgia Republican.
Burr, a Winston-Salem Republican, holds a comfortable lead in the polls over his three primary challengers. Of course Burr spending election night in Washington and not North Carolina is likely to end up as a talking point from whomever emerges from the Democratic primary.
UPDATE: A Burr spokeswoman says Burr will be in Washington because the Senate is in session.
