Bush is key to Senate race in N.C. (Albert Eisele, 10/20/04, The Hill)

Republicans call it the “three-B” hurdle — Bush, Burr and Ballantine. President Bush is still popular in North Carolina, where he beat Al Gore, 56 to 43 percent, in 2000, and not even Bill Clinton was able to carry the state in either of his races.

Helen Worthy, who chairs the New Hanover County Democratic Party, called the Bowles-Burr race “neck and neck” but said the local outcome may depend on how long Bush’s coattails are here, and which party does a better job of getting out the vote.

At least Dan Quayle brought Indiana with him.
