RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The Democrat who hopes to replace Republican Howard Coble in the 5th District seat in Congress is stepping up her campaign with less than 100 days to go until Election Day.

Laura Fjeld, a former UNC official, is running against Republican Mark Walker, who won the GOP nomination in the July runoff against Phil Berger, Jr. 
Fjeld sent the following email this week:
Dear Friend,
Today is the 49th anniversary of the signing of Medicare and Medicaid into law.  Medicare has proved to be a critically important program that our seniors rely on.
Over 50 million Americans are insured through Medicare, which covers preventive screenings as well as prescription drugs.  Without Medicare many seniors would lack basic insurance coverage, and be forced to choose between purchasing their medications and putting food on the table.
Some in Washington want to turn Medicare into a voucher program.  This would threaten nursing homes and long-term care, and shred the health care safety net.  I will always fight to protect Medicare, which is critical to the well-being of our seniors and their families.  
Washington is broken and I am ready to roll up my sleeves to find solutions for the people of North Carolina.
Thanks for all of your support.

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Democratic Party says it's started running a television ad criticizing Republican leaders at the General Assembly for passing laws that hurt women on issues from abortion and child care to Medicaid and the public schools.


The state party said Tuesday the 60-second commercial is running on cable TV in the Charlotte and Raleigh markets. A party spokesman declined to say how much money is being spent on the ad. An email sent to party supporters asked for more donations to keep the ad running.


The ad features Governor Beverly Perdue, state legislators and former Cabinet secretary and longtime party activist Betty McCain, who said "the GOP has declared war on women." The ad includes footage of Republican House leaders Thom Tillis and Paul Stam.
