Republican State Sen. Neal Hunt is courting District 15 voters with a mailer touting his ties to Wake County, his private sector success and his readiness to "clean up the mess caused by Gov. Perdue's failed leadership."
Hunt, seeking his fifth term to his Raleigh district, used familiar lines from state and national campaigns this election cycle: he'll help balance the budget, end wasteful spending and improve schools, the mailer says. (See mailer in link below.)
The Republican faces Democrat Sig Hutchinson in the November election.
The early mail drop -- which targeted some unaffiliated voters -- reflects heightened tensions this election year and emulates the gubernatorial and presidential races, which seem to be moving on a much faster scheduled compared to other election years. And it appears that Hunt has enough money to play ball.
