Democratic Senate candidate Elaine Marshall, donning sneakers, was knocking on doors this afternoon in Durham before heading out to the State Fairgrounds.
Before heading into the neighborhoods to canvass, she gave a pep talk about about 40 volunteers who gathered behind the Southbank building in downtown Durham.
"This election is about who you are going to stand up for: whether you are going to stand up for middle class.. or are you going to to up there for the millionaires and billionaires who ship jobs overseas again and again," Marshall said.
She was joined by her former Democratic primary opponent, Durham attorney Ken Lewis. Earlier in the day, she was introduced at the Orange County Democratic Party breakfast by another former rival, former state Sen. Cal Cunningham.
Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Richard Burr was working his way toward the Triangle holding rallies in Fayetteville and Goldsboro. He will be in Five County Stadium tonight in Zebulon.
