">the right thing. He could have easily stayed in the runoff and still had a chance to defeat Ballentine, but he did what was best for the party, something that few politicians would have done. This was a big shock for everyone, and considering some of the statements he made about Ballentine yesterday, no one expected it.
With this show of integrity by Vinroot, I expect Ballentine to get a slight push in the polls that he otherwise wouldn't have gotten had a runoff would have went down. The White House will enthusiasticly support Ballentine, since Ballentine is more of a moderate conservative after Bush's own heart, so I'm sure Bush will campaign in North Carolina a few more times before the November elections.
Easley will still have a considerable lead in the polls, but Ballentine still has a considerable chance to beat him. Good luck to him, and he has by support and my vote so far.
