North Carolina race could determine whether GOP keeps the Senate: I haven’t read much about this race, but as it stands Sen. Richard Burr (R) is in a very close contest with Deborah Ross (D). Currently, “Ross is benefiting from a strong Democratic turnout effort and from campaign visits” from Obama, Kaine, and Clinton.

AT&T’s merger could be a bad sign for the economy: I’m reading “Cornered: The New Monopoly Capitalism” at the moment and its relevance to the AT&T merger is frightening.

New Elway poll shows Initiative 1491 with 67% support: Initiative 1491, which would enact extreme risk protection orders (thus preventing firearms access to those posing a danger to themselves or others), is at 67%. That is a three percent increase in support from August. Only 18% oppose it.
