Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow (R) filed for Congress earlier this week against 14-term North Carolina Rep. Howard Coble (R).
Yow, who lost to Coble by a whopping 48 points in the 2010 GOP primary, said Coble had “been here a li’l too long.”
“The Howard today is not what he was 20 years ago,” said Yow, who is serving his third term on the county commission and owns a well-drilling company and a small cattle farm.
Yow’s main concern is with Washington, D.C., and what long-term politicians there have done racking up budget deficits and debt.
“This isn’t no rocket science!” Yow said. “If you don’t have it, you can’t spend it.”
