Senator Edwards recently campaigned for NC-08 Larry Kissell and described him as the type of leader who will "stand up for the people of his Congressional District" and stated that, "Kissell is as "grassroots as grassroots gets. He's not the "son of mill worker, he is a mill worker!"



Edwards and Kissell have a kinship not only due to the fact that they grew up 10 miles apart but that they understand that America must not only show strength, economic and military strength, but also "moral authority" to lead. "The rest of the world has to respect you. They have to believe in what you're doing" (John Edwards).


Kissell's positions on issues reinforce his progressive beliefs. He's for a a "wrap up on Iraq", less taxes, and strong national security. In his message, "The Road Ahead," he sums up it:


From establishing Administration accountability for a trail of enormous mistakes that have created the mess in Iraq, to the lack of preparation for a future without oil, to a surging national deficit financed by foreign interests, to the growth of government and bureaucratic inefficiency, to rising medical insurance costs, to government corruption, deceit and cronyism, to more Americans in poverty, to a Congress that cuts benefits for average workers only to give tax breaks targeting the wealthiest like our own congressional incumbent.


Back in June, Larry Kissell was added to the ActBlue Netroots page. At that time, Kissell was basically an unknown candidate who faced an uphill battle against. Today, he is the frontrunner, polling ahead at 51-47 against his opponent Robin Hayes, in large part to due his netroots support.

PLEASE DONATE TO LARRY KISSELL! http://www.larrykissell.com/default.asp

For Triangle Dems there will be a "Konvoy 4 Kissell" on November 4th. For more info: http://www.bluenc.com/updated-konvoy-4-kissell-on-novem...

2. NC Rockin'
It's an exciting time in NC right now. We're headed for at least 2 House gains NC-11 Heath Shuler taking out Charles Taylor and Larry Kissell taking out Robin Hayes in NC-08. Maybe the "Kissell effect" will help Roger Sharpe take out Virginia Foxx in NC-05.

3. What is it with all these mill worker politicians?
Sending politicians who were born into political dynasties and the life of luxury is good enough for most states ... but is it good enough for the Carolinas? Noooooooo, first they bring a mill workers son into politic's, and now they are trying to bring a mill worker into politic.

Its like they think that politicians should be chosen from the best of their friends and neighbors! Sheesh.

And I know that some in South Carolina are saying, "Don't blame us, John Edwards was a Senator in North Carolina" ... but no, you can't duck out on this, he was born in South Carolina. So I'm going to hold you accountable too.

9. I heard that race mentioned for the first time
by someone in the press as a possible pickup - a long shot, but it was mentioned. You never know what might happen.

The nastiness is coming from all directions in NC-08.

5. Go Kissell!
A lot of hard work has gone into this campaign also. I am very glad that John Edwards has been there to help. He can liven up any crowd because he has such a good message.

7. Yes, Edwards campaigned twice for Shuler
I vlogged the first rally he did in Henderson with Shuler but couldn't make the second rally.

WNCNN vlogged the second rally: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

10. Like Lamont, Edwards had a meet and greet for bloggers only
At this event before the rally. Edwards and now Kissell have a great respect for netrooters as we are the new media!

Go Larry go!
