— Ken Lewis will endorse Elaine Marshall in a day or so. Cal Cunningham will be out of the race by the weekend, if not sooner.

Or would Cunningham like to be the survivor of an ultra-low turnout primary at the end of June, “winning” with the enmity of every woman Democrat in North Carolina as he turns to face Richard Burr?

That’s best case for Cal.

Worst is, he gets creamed in June and is a two-time (sore) loser.
