Second, Public Policy Polling shows that Sen. Richard Burr is vulnerable in 2010...but as far as I know, the only person that PPP has polled actually leading Burr is, you guessed it, Coop. See also this post on the PPP blog, which says "...generally speaking, you want to get your most well known and popular possible candidate into the race ....There's no doubt for Democrats in North Carolina that person is Roy Cooper, who already has 44% positive name recognition. If he doesn't run the party will still more than likely have a strong contender- but if you can get your best prospect, why bother with anyone else?" Couldn't have said it better ourselves.
Third, Coop is hard at work, including visiting Pope Air Force Base to talk about scams targeting members of our military. This experience will serve him well one day when he serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee!
