That Mike McIntyre may be considering running for U.S. Senate against Richard Burr. This comes as someone was polling recently asking how well Kay Hagan and McIntyre – and only Hagan and McIntyre — would do against Burr. The Democrats chances of beating Burr would be helped considerably if they could field a name candidate — and if Hagan isn’t running, then McIntyre wouldn’t be a bad option. It remains to be seen whether McIntyre likes the numbers that the poll show — that’s presuming the poll was being done on his behalf, which isn’t a given — and decides to enter the race.
