IRAQ WAR VETERAN QUITS NC RACE FOR CONGRESS

from Ron Gunzburger...

NORTH CAROLINA. Democats lost one of their highly-touted Congressional challengers on Tuesday. Iraq War veteran Tim Dunn (D) -- an attorney and USMC Reserve Lieutenant Colonel -- ended his campaign against Congressman Robin Hayes (R). Dunn said family obligations were the reason for the withdrawal, although his fundraising had lagged far behind the incumbent. Hayes was viewed as vulnerable because of his vote in support of CAFTA, the free trade deal highly unpopular in the textile mill-laden district. With Dunn out of the race, we're moving it from "GOP Favored" to "Safe GOP."


Another one bites the dust.
