Is North Carolina Senator Richard Burr related to Aaron Burr? The answer is yes, but the family tree is tangled, just like this tree. Richard thinks that there are no direct descendants, and that he is a descendant of Burr's brother. Hard to remember that Burr was considered Vice Presidential in 2008, but also hard to remember that his senate seat was considered "at risk" in 2009 and even late this summer. In addition to leading in the polls, Burr is also leading in the Winston-Salem yard sign competition.
