Pubbies May Lose ANOTHER Seat in Congress

It ain't over yet, folks.

Despite being outspent nearly 5 to 1, Democrat Larry Kissell has battled to a virtual dead heat with the third richest Congressperson in the country, four-term Republican incumbent Robin Hayes.

...On Friday November 17th, each of the ten North Carolina counties within the eighth congressional district will report their provisional vote totals. The vote will then be certified. If the race is within 1% point at that time (which it will be), the trailing party may request a recount.

It's a North Carolina district in which NAFTA/Free Trade arguments were prominent due to the presence (shrinking) of the textile industry.
