Under the Dome

Jazzing up the Lt. Gov. race

Hampton DellingerIt can be difficult to get folks to tune in to the race for lieutenant governor.

But Hampton Dellinger, one of four Democratic candidates for the post, has managed to get the attention of renowned jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis.

Marsalis has cut a radio ad endorsing Dellinger, a Durham attorney.

Marsalis, who lives in Durham, says in the ad that he has been impressed by Dellinger's willingness to talk about poverty and the need to create jobs in North Carolina.

"Now I'm not a political guy," Marsalis says in the ad. "But it's not often I hear somebody talking about what really matters."
