‘02 can­did­ate/Sec/State Elaine Mar­shall (D) “sent out a news re­lease in the form of a fairy tale be­littling the claims” made in Sen.

Burr’s camp “re­spon­ded with a web video titled ‘The Mar­shall Tales.’” The ad: “Once upon time, atop her ivory tower in Raleigh … Elaine Mar­shall dreams of join­ing Harry Re­id and Nancy Pelosi to solve Amer­ica’s prob­lems.”

The video “ends with a black screen” and a “tick­ing” nat’l debt (Christensen, Raleigh News and Ob­serv­er, 9/1).

Raleigh-born Aiken “back” atty/Ir­aq war vet­er­an/ex-state Sen. Cal Cun­ning­ham (D) in the Dem primary (Christensen, Raleigh News and Ob­serv­er, 9/1).
