Former Governor Joins Kissell Campaign

Former Governor Jim Hunt helped Democratic congressional candidate Larry Kissell campaign today in Fayetteville.

Hunt and Kissell, who's trying to unseat Republican Robin Hayes,
knocked on doors and handed out campaign brochures.

Hunt says Kissell has been treated as an underdog, but he thinks
the school teacher has a chance to beat Hayes.

The two talked with about a dozen people who answered their
doors this morning. Many recognized Hunt, who served four terms as
governor. Hunt introduced Kissell to potential voters and told them
why they should vote for him.

Kissell says he hopes what he thinks is an ongoing frustration
with the war in Iraq and other issues will cause people to seek a
change in Washington.

With much less money than Hayes, Kissell has run a grass-roots
campaign that often includes going door-to-door.
