So who’s running at large for Charlotte City Council? Well, as the Charlotte Observer reports, lots and lots of Democrats — at least 10. And on the Republican side, you have two people signed up when there are four at-large seats. In other words, we’re deep into the Republican political death cycle in Charlotte — Republicans have had a very hard time winning city-wide recently, which now makes candidate recruitment a problem, and without enough good candidates, it’s hard to win or even keep it close… which makes finding good candidates even more difficult.
