â€œDespite the pundits, despite the prognosticators, despite the cynicism,â€ Obama said at the dinner, â€œwe are right here in the hunt in North Carolina. We can win at the top of the ballot in North Carolina. And we win at the bottom of the ballot in North Carolina. We can win in the eastern part of the state and in the western part. We can elect a new Democratic governor here in North Carolina and we can elect a new U.S. senator here in North Carolina.â€
