The two North Carolina Democrats seeking the nomination for U.S. Senate are turning their attention away from each other and toward the task of attracting aloof voters to the polls.
Elaine Marshall and Cal Cunningham capped their months of campaigning with trips to phone banks Monday. Marshall was making calls from her campaign headquarters in Raleigh and Cunningham was capping a trip across the state with a final set of calls from Wilmington.
The vote on Tuesday will decide who challenges Republican Sen. Richard Burr in November. But voters appear uninterested in the results, with only 38,000 turning out in early balloting.
The Senate race tops the ballot that will also settle three Republican primaries for Congress and a Democratic race for state Senate.
