I think Bill embraces one of the key elements of Senator Helms' success- Constituent service. Get to know the candidate before you dismiss him

Bill is a washed up excongressman from Chapel Hill, and he's near my dad's age. We need new blood, we need Patrick Ballantine!

The Cobey campaign just came out with some good news. They raised $736,000 in the 2nd quarter and outraised all other opponents. On top of that, the Cobey campaign has more cash on hand than any other candidate, not bad considering he got into the race almost 8 months after his biggest rivals...

Happy birthday nonetheless.

He has a radio ad featuring the esteemed former Senator on his website. It's a little unusual and worth a listen....
