Almost forgot, Rahm sent out an email yesterday about Larry Kissell. He’s the DCCC’s featured candidate on their site (for now). Got a lot of play from DavidNYC on dKos as well.
Here’s the text from the DCCC letter:
On September 9th the DCCC challenged all of our Democratic House candidates to recruit as many volunteers as possible to kick off their on-the-ground activities in their districts. Many campaigns participated, but only one won our contest – Larry Kissell who is running in North Carolina’s 8th congressional district.
I was not surprised to hear that Larry Kissell was our Action for a New Direction Day winning candidate. Larry’s campaign recruited almost 1,000 volunteers in one day — anybody who can say that is a true grassroots candidate. He has taken his message of change to the streets of North Carolina’s 8th congressional district and they have responded in overwhelming numbers.
Recently, the DCCC added him to our “Emerging Races” slate for candidates who have defied the odds in taking traditionally non-competitive districts and, through the strength of their campaigns, put themselves in a position to win in November. This seat is winnable — this congressional district is one of the highest Democratic performing districts in the south currently held by a Republican; we need to bring this seat home.
