N.C. elections key for GOP

GOP GOP


Marshall challenges Burr

The hotly contested Senate race has tightened as Burr has seen his opponent, Marshall, surge in the polls despite her campaign’s lack of funding. Burr has held this seat since 2005. The increasing anti-incumbent sentiment could give Marshall a leg up.


Elaine Marshall

Poll: 37 percent of voters support Marshall according to the latest Public Policy Polling.
Top campaign issue: Wall Street reform
Funds on hand: Less than $200,000


Richard Burr

Poll: 39 percent of voters support Burr according to the latest Public Policy Polling.
Top campaign issues: Less government spending, veterans’ affairs
Funds on hand: $6,260,867. As polls tighten, look for Burr to tap into his sizable campaign war chest.

Kissell barely holding seat

After winning the Republican primary in June, Harold Johnson has managed to draw closer to Kissell in polls. Last month, Kissell was buoyed by part of a $871,000 donation the Democratic Congressional Campaign set aside for ads.


Larry Kissell

Poll: 41 percent of voters support Kissell according to the latest Public Policy Polling.
Funds raised: $704,115
Note: Kissell, whose seat was previously held by a Republican for 10 years, will likely need every vote to survive the elections.


Harold Johnson

Poll: 35 percent of voters support Johnson according to the latest Public Policy Polling.
Funds raised: $481,537
Note: Johnson is well known in the Charlotte area as a top sportscaster, also known as “The Big Guy.”
