Personal obstacles aside, it's still not clear that fundraising was going well for the campaign in Charlotte. Two out of the three fundraisers Cannon was planning were to be held out of town, in Atlanta and Florida, Mitchell says.

Either way, most observers now see Cannon's political career as dead in the water, a hard and fast fall for a man who just months ago was believed by many to be one of the city's most promising politicians.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
