AMERICAblog supports Jim Neal for Senate in North Carolina

You have to meet Jim Neal. He is running for Senate in North Carolina and he did a video to introduce himself to AMERICAblog’s readers:

Jim is a proud Democrat running for Senate. And, clearly, he is right on the issues. He’ll run circles around Liddy Dole. We set up an ActBlue page to make it very easy to contribute to Jim’s campaign.

The primary is May 6th (yes, the same day as the all-important Democratic primary in NC, so turnout will be huge.) Jim is not the “establishment” candidate for the primary. However, the polls we’ve seen show a close primary race at this point. PPP’s latest survey shows the primary race is wide open — and money will matter.

For additional background, check out Pam Spaulding’s interview with Jim shortly after he announced his candidacy. Also, Jim participated in a Blue America session at FireDogLake. And, BlueNC has a lot on the race. From all the reports, we’re convinced Jim is putting together a great campaign in North Carolina. It’s very cool to have such a strong, credible candidate in NC who is also gay. Let’s help Jim win and take over the seat from Liddy Dole and end the legacy of Jesse Helms.
