Another Tea Partier to Challenge an NC Republican Incumbent 

Howard Coble, who has been in the U.S. Congress since 1984, currently representing the NC-6, is going to be challenged in the Republican primary by Cathy Brewer Hinson, who, according to Mark Binker, does not self-identify with the tea party movement but who by all other appearances is very much a part of the tea party movement. Her great qualification appears to be that she's prayed about it.

That makes two Republican conservative incumbents in North Carolina (that we know of) who've attracted tea party oppo.

Insurgent Tea-Partier Opposes Foxx 

Brad Smith, the Wilkes County disaffected Republican who is trying to gather some 17,000 signatures on a petition to get himself on the fall ballot as an independent candidate opposing Madam Virginia Foxx, made the front page of the Winston-Salem Journal today. He has a website and a page that allows you to print a copy of his petition specific for your county.

Congresswoman Foxx was unavailable for comment.

Holding her breath and hoping Mr. Smith goes away?

Foxx Gets Challenger on the Right 

Apparently, Virginia Foxx has officially become part of the "Washington establishment," as a Glenn-Beck-inspired independent candidate is gathering petition signatures to get himself on the fall 2010 ballot to oppose her. Brad Smith is a Wilkes County construction supervisor for W.A. Lankford metal buildings. He's a former lifelong Republican disillusioned with his party's leaders.

Where can I sign that petition?
