The North Carolina Republican Party will be watching the election results at the North Raleigh Hilton beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The N.C. Dems are hosting their election watch party at the Raleigh Marriott City Center. Several candidates will be in attendance at both locations. Check tomorrow's Chronicle for coverage of both events.
Weather.com currently forecasts a 60 percent chance of rain tomorrow for Durham, NC. Is this bad news for Sen. Barack Obama and the rest of the Democratic ticket? Rain typically decreases turnout and at least one professor's study claims that inclement weather aids Republican candidates on Election Day.
As Election Day nears, North Carolina is expected to include some of the closest races in the country. Polls show the U.S. Senate, presidential and gubernatorial races are all deadlocked. And, as Chuck Todd of MSNBC.com notes, "the Republicans feel best about their chances in the governor's race (a campaign they usually lose) than the senate or presidential." This may be because Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory, the Republican candidate, has been able to present himself as the candidate of "change." Democrats have dominated the North Carolina state government for the past eight years, and McCrory finds himself in the unique position of a Republican candidate who represents a change.
KANSAS CITY, MS - "Obama's coming to Greensboro," "Palin's speaking in Greenville," "Biden's in Raleigh today" and "McCain is going to be in Fayetteville again?"
With one week left before election day, North Carolina has clearly solidified its status as a bona fide swing state. The two major presidential candidates are planning trips to the Tar Heel State. Republican Sen. John McCain will attend a rally in Fayetteville today and Democratic Sen. Barack Obama plans to speak in Raleigh Wednesday. To top things off, Libertarian candidate Bob Barr will speak in 139 Social Sciences Building at 5 p.m. today. Check back with The Chronicle's Election 2008 Blog for updates all this week.
A common complaint among undergraduates is that Duke is not a place that fosters intellectual conversations.
Last February I received a phone call at 4 a.m. I knew exactly who was calling.
Monday’s story, “Duke College Republicans impeach chair,” detailing the removal of former Duke College Republicans chair Justin Robinette, a junior, has provoked a strong reaction from our readers. This is understandable, and it merits some explanation.
While performers insist that the show must go on, journalists might say that the news never stops.
The last time Duke and Clemson met, the Tigers press defense overwhelmed the Blue Devils in a 74-47 rout that represented Duke's worst scoring output since 1995.
When the Board of Trustees Business and Finance Committee convenes this weekend, its members will be acutely aware of the steps that Duke’s peer institutions are taking to confront the challenge of a recession. Several of those schools have hired external consulting firms, just like a private company would do, to scrutinize management practices and identify ways to save money.
Luísa Pinho Sartori, a visiting international student from Brazil, died Sunday in a car accident in New York state. She was 20 years old.
Microfinance pioneer Muhammad Yunus will deliver Duke’s 2010 commencement address, President Richard Brodhead announced Thursday.
A Sept. 18 minute entry from a U.S. District Court proceeding indicates that former University employee Frank Lombard is seeking to negotiate a plea agreement on child sex abuse charges.
Frank Lombard, who was arrested by the FBI in June on child sex abuse charges, was let go by the University Tuesday. Michael Schoenfeld, vice president for public affairs and government relations, confirmed that Lombard is no longer a Duke employee.
Out of the 825 bi-weekly employees offered early retirement incentives by the University, 295 have accepted, said Michael Schoenfeld, vice president for public affairs and government relations.
There's a conversation going on right now.
I step into the role of Chronicle editor with some unique ties to the University that I will be covering for the next year.My grandmother Sally Robinson, Woman’s College ’55, served on the Board of Trustees from 1999 to 2004 and she was co-chair of the Financial Aid Development Committee. My grandfather Russell Robinson is chair of the Charlotte-based Duke Endowment.I want to make it clear to readers that I am aware of the potential for conflicts of interest that this situation presents. I have taken and will carry out appropriate steps to ensure that my relationship with my grandparents does not affect coverage.In the past, The Chronicle editor has covered the Board of Trustees meetings. That will not remain the case this year—I plan to pass off coverage of these events to other reporters. I will also continue to recuse myself from stories that involve the Financial Aid Initiative and the Charlotte-based Duke Endowment.The primary role of The Chronicle is to serve as a reliable source of information for students and the University community. But our journalism often causes us to assume the role of a watchdog acting as a check on the administration. I want to assure readers that I will not disregard that responsibility.So Grandma and Grandad, don’t expect a free pass next year. After all, not everyone in my family loves Duke, and at this time perhaps I should offer one more disclosure that our readers may find even more alarming: my mother and brother are current and future alums of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.Will Robinson will be the editor of the 105th volume of The Chronicle. If you have any questions, please e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although most conversations on campus focused on basketball Thursday, at least one focused on somethings more controversial- the Iraq War, torture and the impact of former President George W. Bush's legacy.
A debate over nationalizing banks may remind history buffs of President Andrew Jackson's presidency, but the recent financial crisis has made the issue relevant to the public again.
