What if Shuler Returns to Washington?

By on 9.9.06 | 7:36AM

Here in North Carolina, the only congressional race considered to be competitive this fall is in our 11th District, which pits incumbent Republican Rep. Charles Taylor against former Redskins quarterback Heath Shuler. Shuler has raised a lot of money, and Democrats are counting on this contest to help them retake the House. Charlie Cook rates it a "toss-up." Taylor is a pretty quiet guy and usually gets going late in his campaigns, but he has plenty of money of his own he can throw into the race.

Nevertheless, Taylor's seeming sluggishness has at least one fan with a long memory concerned about what horror (video) a Rep. Shuler could unleash on Washington (video).
