GOP gets desperate in Virginia: Ed Gillespie’s sad appeal to Redskins fans
One race that anyone with half-a-sense of how politics works could predict turning out exactly the way it has is Virginia’s Senate race. Mark Warner is a relatively popular purplish Democratic senator with access to vast sums of money. His opponent is Ed Gillespie, a walking opposition research pile. What was the rationale behind the Republican Party getting Ed Gillespie to serve as its nominee? Maybe the idea was that no one stood much of a chance against Warner, so it might as well be a well-connected insider like Gillespie who would at least raise a lot of money. But he hasn’t even been able to raise that much money, or attract outside money to support him, because the race has never been anywhere close. Salon

Goodbye West Virginia
West Virginia is a red state, and you can blame George W. Bush. That might sound premature, as the state still has two Democratic senators, a Democratic governor, a Democrat-controlled House of Delegates, and a Democrat-controlled state Senate. But it isn’t. Slate.com

N.C. economy isn’t stuck in limbo
RALEIGH — Which picture of North Carolina’s recent past is more accurate? I’ll call the two alternatives Tar Heel Limbo and Tar Heel Heaven. (And, no, I’m not referring to the fake-class scandal at UNC-Chapel Hill. That’s clearly Tar Heel Hell.) In Tar Heel Limbo, the state’s economy is growing very slowly. From September 2013 to September 2014, employment rose by just 18,000, a growth rate significantly below the national average. It’s not enough to keep pace with a growing population of job seekers and to put upward pressure on wages. ansonrecord.com

The Ervin South Carolina Bombshell. Could It Affect Nikki Haley’s Chances?
For the first time in this mid-term election cycle, South Carolina politics suddenly got interesting. The state’s just been politically “Ervinized.” But, first, a little background. Make no mistake, ‘trounce’ will still be the South Carolina post-election catchphrase of the day come November 4th as most Republicans in this pitifully right-wing state will take measure of their massively outspent Democratic opponents by easy double-digits. These feelings of dominance and invincibility may be tempered however, by one race that seemed to be a walkover that is no longer a walkover. Politicususa.com

Plaintiffs accuse Exxon of stifling Arkansas oil spill case
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Plaintiffs in an oil spill lawsuit against Exxon Mobil want documents in the case to be public. The plaintiffs’ attorneys say the oil company has declared every single page of 872,000 pages about the maintenance and repair of the Pegasus pipeline confidential. They filed a motion on Monday in U.S. District Court, asking a federal judge to order Exxon Mobil to “show cause why any document produced to date is entitled to confidentiality.” Fuel Fix

Louisiana Bars Scientists From Conference Because They Studied Ebola In Africa
Louisiana has a message for many of the scientists and medical experts studing Ebola and aiding efforts to fight the deadly virus in West Africa -- stay away. The state sent a letter yesterday to members of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, which is holding its annual conference in New Orleans next week. If they’ve recently been to any of the West African countries where the virus has infected more than 13,000 people, they shouldn’t attend the meeting. NOLA.com

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
