WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Cal Cunningham spent time Sunday afternoon talking to voters at Jesters Java in Wilmington. It was the last stop on a tour across the state for the Democratic candidate for US Senate.
Cunningham is running against Elaine Marshall and Kenneth Lewis for the Democratic nomination to oppose incumbent Richard Burr for one of North Carolina’s Senate seat.
While in town, Cunningham emphasized that the economy and jobs are the biggest issues facing voters today. However, he also discussed offshore drilling, which has been a controversial topic recently.
"We recognize the perils that can be raised by offshore drilling," Cunningham said. "We're seeing that in the Gulf (of Mexico) right now. That's why I've said I don't think that's the right answer for North Carolina."
Election Day is Tuesday. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
