Ilaro Pantano Wins Primary In NC-7

Does that name ring a bell? It should. Pantano became a cause celebre when, as a Marine in Iraq, he was accused of murdering two Iraqi insurgents -- but charges were dropped. It appeared to be a political move to appease the Iraqis in the first place.

And now he's contesting North Carolina's 7th district, a seat Republicans haven't held for 140 years.

Geraghty puts the seat, though, in the 99 possible pick-ups:

Mike McIntyre, North Carolina: This seven-term Democrat would be safe in an ordinary year, but he felt enough pressure back in his district to vote against the health-care bill. GOP challenger Ilario Pantano, a police officer, raised $103,000, which is more than McIntyre did; the district rates an R+8 on the Cook PVI.
