N.C. Democrat takes page from GOP playbook

(CNN) - If Senate candidate and North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall didn't criticize GOP Sen. Richard Burr in her latest television ad, she'd likely be confused for a Republican.

That's because the Democratic candidate took a page out of the Republican Party's 2010 playbook and released an ad targeting her opponent as being part of the Washington establishment.

"Washington is broken, and Sen. Richard Burr helped break it," Marshall says as she looks straight into the camera in the 30-second commercial. "…Even though Washington politicians like Richard Burr don't want to hear it, it's time to throw 'em out."
