Jim Neal Loses NC Senate Primary

Openly gay U.S. Senate candidate Jim Neal was trounced in yesterday's North Carolina primary, taking (as of this writing) only 19% of the vote to state Sen. Kay Hagen's 62%. Hagen will now face incumbent Elizabeth Dole, who breezed to an easy win on the Republican side with 90% of the vote.

Neal's underfunded campaign ran no television ads and lacked the endorsements of some major PACs, perhaps most notably the Human Rights Campaign.
