Bucking Burr

I don't like linking to unnamed sources and I don't know how much creedence to give to it, but if it's true, I would be very happy to see this happen.
Two sources tell Hotline On Call that former state Sen. Cal Cunningham (D) is set to announce he will run against Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), reconsidering his earlier decision to drop out of the race.

"Already, several big-name candidates have declined to challenge Burr, who is running for a second term. Cunningham, an atty and U.S. Army Reserve captain from Lexington, will give Burr a solid, if not top-tier, challenger in '10."
Not that you could necessarily convince the deluded souls around here who don't even know that Hawaii is really part of the United States that Burr has been absolutely useless as a Senator. But a strong challenger with a good PR operation might be able to educate them. One can hope anyway and maybe the Dems could build a strong enough organization out here to get rid of crazy Virginia Foxx too.
