RALEIGH North Carolina Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, Deborah Ross, has aired her first TV ad of the campaign season as her close race with incumbent Richard Burr (R) begins to heat up.In the ad, Ross takes a phone call from “Richard” and proceeds to question the fictitious senator, painting him as a Washington insider. Though Burr has been running campaign ads since February of this year, the superpac One Nation has recently made a large ad buy in the state promoting the Republican senator’s defense of Medicare and his fight against the Obama administration’s changes to the entitlement program.Communities across North Carolina can expect to be inundated with ads from Ross and Burr in attempts to appeal to voters in the remaining weeks leading up to the election. Burr, a two term incumbent serving since 2005 and chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, is locked in a dead heat with his Democrat challenger, with the Real Clear Politics average of polls showing Burr with just a one point lead.While Burr’s national security bona fides should shore up support at a time when Islamist terrorism and geopolitical concerns continue to fester, Ross may benefit from an election cycle defined by anti-insider sentiment.
