Weekly Wrap: Be afraid, be very afraid

Posted October 28, 2016

— With less than two weeks to go until Election Day, political candidates are stumping across North Carolina and the television and radio airwaves are filled with campaign ads. It's truly a scary time to live in a battleground state.

Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both visited, as did former President Bill Clinton, first lady Michelle Obama and Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence. President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine are scheduled to stop in North Carolina next week.

Meanwhile, the heat has turned up on a North Carolina Supreme Court race, with ads both for and against incumbent Justice Bob Edmunds. Outside groups with anonymous donors paid for both ads.

Ads are also flying in the U.S. Senate race between Republican Sen. Richard Burr and Democratic challenger Deborah Ross, as control of the Senate could come down to North Carolina.
