No bio on Whalen...where's he from? education?

Its surprising that someone from ENC didnt get picked when you consider most of the corruption leaders are harbored down east..I guess Whalen fits right into their mold. Its not a job to be proud of in NC.

Anyone who can engineer a campaign to defeat then Representative Charles Taylor and manage a win for Heath Shuler has got to have the savvy to run the N.C. Democratic Party. Doesn't matter that Andrew Whalen does not hail from the South; he has the smarts to do the job. N.C. Democrats need someone like that who can organize and pull people together.

He sure was able to pass off a Republican as a Democrat. A real magician, that man!

what exactly did Whalen engineer given that there is virtually zero substantive difference between Shuler and Taylor. On the other hand, perhaps Whalen can save Democrats in the state from themselves, considering the mess they have made of the state budget. How many shortfalls does this make in the past 17 years of Dem leadership?
