Four years after being elected to Congress in the same year that Barack Obama won North Carolina, Democratic U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell faces a tough re-election contest in a district that has been redrawn to favor Republicans.
Kissell must first fend off a May 8 primary challenge from a fellow Democrat, Lumberton lawyer Marcus Williams. If Kissell prevails, he will compete against the winner of a five-candidate GOP primary in the sprawling 8th District, which extends across parts of 12 counties.
Running on the GOP side are state Rep. Fred Steen II, a two-term legislator and small business owner from Landis; Richard Hudson, owner of Cabarrus Marketing Group; Vernon Robinson, a businessman in new media marketing and sales; Dr. Scott Keadle, a dentist in Salisbury, and Dr. John Whitley, a physician and neurosurgeon.

He should be toast, Mike McIntyre too.
And Shuler and Mitchell if they hadn’t given up and retired.
