NC-04 — He really does narrate everything. If N.C. House candidate B.J. Lawson’s Facebook page is accurate, the voice in his new campaign ad belongs to none other than Morgan Freeman. It does sound like him. See/listen for yourself:
Lawson is trying to unseat 22-year incumbent Rep. David Price (D) in a rematch of 2008. Price won big that year, thanks in part to heavy turnout among African-Americans and students (the 4th district includes the hyper-liberal Chapel Hill, home of the University of North Carolina). However, without Barack Obama on the ballot this time, and given the mood of the nation at large, Price could be in for a shocker. If Lawson can pull off the upset here, or even make it close, that would be good indicator that the GOP is in for a remarkable night on Tuesday.
