Gary Pearce, a Democratic consultant in North Carolina, suggests that the prospect of the Democratic presidential nomination contest remaining competitive until his state votes in May could muddy the waters in the gubernatorial primary between Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue and state Treasurer Richard Moore:
Moore and Perdue - and any candidate running for any office - will have a harder time getting heard. TV ad time will be scarcer. The presidential primary will dominate the papers and TV news.
North Carolina Democrats didn't move up our primary in part because they're deathly afraid of Democratic presidential candidates. Our worst years - 1972, 1984 and 1994 - were the direct result of unpopular presidential candidates or sitting Presidents. (That would be Bill Clinton.)
Now we face the prospect of that whole mess dumped right on top of us. It may be about as welcome as an outbreak of bird flu.
