The Democratic tussle over North
Carolina is just revving up.



(CHARLOTTE, NC)



The state's primary is May 6th - but
already nearly 75-thousand people have


cast early votes under new rules
allowing unregistered voters to sign up
and


fill out their ballots on the same day.



Hillary Clinton is making a campaign
swing there... but she faces uphill


battle. Barack Obama is expected to
win - and the number of newly
registered


black voters bodes well for him.



(NATS AD - )



But -it is the state REPUBLICAN party


that's launching the first head-on


attack on Obama.



(NATS AD -)



A TV commercial featuring controversial
comments from his former pastor is set


to hit the airwaves next week even
though John McCain asked state
officials


to pull it.



BRIDGE John Edwards remains a big
wildcard in the upcoming contest - The


one-time candidate and former North
Carolina Senator has yet to endorse
either


Democratic candidate for the White
House.



Barack Obama could use Edwards' weight
to win white working class voters - a


demographic that helped Clinton score a
double digit victory in Pennsylvania.



Campaigning in Indiana Wednesday , she
made the argument she now leads Obama


nationally in the popular vote.



CLINTON SOT I have received more votes


by the people who have voted than


anybody else. It's a very close race
but if you count, as I count, the 2.3


million people who voted in Michigan
and Florida then we are going to build
on


that."



But those wins won't count because the
states broke party rules and held


early primaries. Even without those
votes, Clinton faces a mathematical


challenge to collect enough delegates
to clinch the nomination. Susan

Last month, his landlords Ribble

Helms doesn't have a lease, and
an un-named tenant is expected to take
over the space and start paying 600
dollars a month.

Paul McCartney: She would be holding a

just pull her camera, and take it down

Talladega this weekend, and then the

In a new twist, ESPN is reporting that
Tony Stewart is looking into the
possibility of leaving Joe Gibbs Racing
when his contract is up after next
season, or maybe even before.

This Season The report insists that Stewart
wants to own his own team and return to
driving Chevrolets and working with
General Motors.


One possible scenario has him
joining up with Haas/CNC racing and
driving either the 70 or 66 Chevys--
two cars that have been a bust so far


this season.


Gibbs Racing president J.D. Gibbs
responded saying Tony has some options,
but he's under contract with us through
2009.
