RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Democratic Party activists say they have a tough job ahead, but say they believe they can will the elections in November.
The state Democratic Party held its annual convention Saturday in Raleigh with Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of the vice president, as the keynote speaker. He described North Carolina as a critical state in the presidential election.
Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton gave a fiery speech that targeted his GOP gubernatorial opponent, Pat McCrory, and legislative Republicans.
Democratic leaders say they don't think people across the state are paying attention to a lawsuit filed by a former party staffer over a sexual harassment claim that resulted in the party's executive director resigning. Dalton says voters are concentrating on how the state will move forward.
