North Carolina political commentator and author Paul Luebke discusses why U.S. Senator Jesse Helms has remained popular and what it will take to beat him in the upcoming election. Luebke believes the idea of N.C. as a progressive state is a myth as seen by the multiple re-elections of Helm. The state is progressive industrially, but not socially. Helms is a traditionalist whose policies do not serve the needs of most of the citizens. If Democrats can find a forceful candidate to challenge Helms on health care, the environment, and education, they have a chance of unseating Helms.
