On the Obama Campaign on North Carolina

Tied in the polls within the margin of error, the only state with targeted Congressional, Senate and Gubertatorial races (and the prospect of a woman Senator regardless of the result), and an incredibly motivated African American population: North Carolina is an exciting place to be.

The team here with me is: Cllr Phillip Glanville(Hoxton representative and David Lammy MP’s other researcher), Peter White (researcher to Margaret Hodge MP) Naomi Wiseman (researcher to Shona McIsaac MP), Dimitri Batrouni (researcher to Jessica Morden MP) and Labour activists Rob Vance and Leo Barasi.

These are a series of thoughts, observations and anecdotes from the campaign in North Carolina – which is taking on mythical proportions the longer we are here...
