It’s the Old School/Old Guard(Howard Coble) versus the New School/New Guard(Billy Yow)…….
The Republican race for Congress is on, as Guilford County commissoner Billy Yow has stepped in to challenge Howard Coble for his 6th District congressional seat.
The two opponents/foes will meet in the Republican Primary as both men will be vying for the Republican nomination and the right to represent the Party in the general election in November….
Howard Coble is the imcumbent and it seems like he has been in office since back in 1972 when Richard Nixon went back to the White House….Coble has defeated Gene Johnston, Robin Britt and others in the general election, but he hardly ever faces a real challenge in the Republican Primary…
To use an old sports term from the basketball games, this could turn out to be a real “Barn Burner” as we see the Old School facing the New School….
If it turns into a foot race then Yow would be declared the winner, but then again, Howard is a very competent tennis player and he might be able to out-run Billy Yow….
The old school(Old Guard) vs. the new school(New Guard) and do we have any early predictions?????
Will Congressman Coble fall or will Commissoner Yow eventually drop out of the race and say he did it out of respect for Howard Coble?????
Early returns would indicate there is no turning back for Yow and he is knee-deep into this race already and he will not back down and if he knocks Howard down, like in a boxing match, he will not help Howard Coble up….
Is Howrd Coble going down for the count????? Will Yow show us how it is done, with his run for Congress?????
This old school versus new school, could get very interesting……
