    NC-2 Clement F Mummo (R)
    NC-3 Walter Jones (R-Inc)
    NC-4 David Price (D-Inc)
    NC-6 Billy Yow (R)
    NC-8 Larry Kissell (D-Inc)
    NC-8 Richard Hudson (R)
    NC-9 Michael Shaffer (R)
    NC-10 Patrick McHenry (R-Inc)

    In NC-6, Billy Yow is challenging 30-year incumbent Howard Coble in the GOP primary. Yow finished second to Coble in 2010 and is hoping redistricting will make Coble vulnerable. Yow sounded like your typical teahadist nutcase on the radio this morning.

    NC-6 is apparently my new district, so I have a keen interest in this one.

    Governor Bill Faison (D)
    Lt Gov Linda Coleman (D)

    State Senate (50 seats) - Dems filed for 10 seats, Republicans for 18 seats, and 1 Libertarian.

    State House (120 seats) - Dems filed for 36 seats, Republicans for 56.

    •  Yeah Yow is a total wacko (0+ / 0-)

      And he's pretty much reviled for his service on the county commissioners, but of course the 6th avoids the most Dem parts of Greensboro and High Point.

      He would be a major downgrade from Coble, who while completely an establishment Republican and a conservative, sometimes strays from party orthodoxy.  Yow would be like a second Virginia Foxx.  The only possibly good thing about Yow winning the primary is that he might be easier to beat in 2016, but this is still quite a conservative district and unless the Dem nominee is winning the state by 5% or more, there's pretty much no way Dems win this seat.
