Shuler-Taylor in NC-11

I'VE TAKEN A special interest in the House race in North Carolina's 11th District partly (OK, almost entirely) because the Democratic challenger is Heath Shuler. That would be the same Heath Shuler chosen 3rd overall in the 1994 NFL draft by the Washington Redskins (right after Marshall Faulk). Shuler is in a tight race against Rep. Charles Taylor and the race took an interesting turn this weekend when the Ashville Citizen-Times changed positions and endorsed Shuler. CQ is rating this race as a toss-up.

Shuler's first stint in DC was a disaster, but we're eager to see what he can do the second time as a member of Congress!

I've written about this race in previous posts -- including a post that highlighted Shuler's career stats with the Redskins. Results were not so good: 292 completions in 593 attemps (49%), 3,691 passing yards, 15 career TDs, 33 career interceptions. All this in 29 career games.

Shuler is up in the polls right now. But Taylor has so much personal money I never count him out. Ever!
