Guilford County Republican Party chairman Bill Wright stands up for Rep. Howard Coble:
Your article of Dec. 23, “Retire? He’s not ready,” says a lot about 6th District Congressman Howard Coble. But perhaps the article says even more about Jay Ovittore, an announced Democratic challenger. Ovittore suggested that anyone who has served as long as Coble begins to get cynical and corrupt…..
Coble consistently receives 70 percent voter support. This suggests many Democratic voters appreciate the solid job he delivers in representing them. I commend Ovittore for joining the political discourse, but he should drop the personal attacks and debate the real issues.
Coble has always served the good folks of the 6th District with honor, distinction and dedicated service. I will do all I can to ensure he continues as “Our Congressman.”
Meanwhile, Coble’s district looks to cash in on $10 million in defense and nondefense-related projects, most notably PPG’s Lexington plant, which would support research for a composite military armor.
