GOP turnout lagging in heavy N. Carolina early voting

Thursday was the first day of early voting in North Carolina, a formerly red state where Obama and McCain are in a virtual tie, and numbers released Friday show that more than 100,000 people turned out. That's 40 percent more than voted on the first day in 2004. Of the nearly 114,000 first-day voters, 64 percent were Democrats, 21 percent Republicans and 15 percent unaffiliated.
