Inside the Tent: Is North Carolina in play?

September 5, 2008

No way, says North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr.  “But I understand why (Democrats) say it’s in play,” he tells Inside the Tent contributor John Steward. “If you eliminate Virginia and North Carolina, it’s hard for Barack Obama to get to 270 (electoral votes).”

Inside the Tent has more than 40 delegates and other attendees in Denver and St. Paul, equipped with video cameras to capture the conventions from the ground up. Steward is not a Reuters employee and any opinions expressed are his own.
