KISSELL -- Eighth District Congressman Larry Kissell has announced his candidacy for re-election.
Democrat Kissell lives in Montgomery County but has a Moore County connection - his wife works for the Moore County school system.
In a statement released July 1, Kissell referred to proposed redistricting that will increase the Republican registration within the 8th District. However, he said he intends to continue to honor his commitment "to our senior citizens and veterans, to protect our economy from bad trade deals and the predatory practices of foreign companies and governments, and to help keep this great nation strong and secure."
COBLE - Moore County's Congressman Howard Coble, who serves the 6th District, has maintained a busy schedule during the July break.
Coble, a Greensboro Republican, threw out the first pitch for the Hi-Toms in Thomasville Saturday.
Monday was filled with Independence Day activities, beginning with the Fun Fourth parade and luncheon in Greensboro. Later in the day he attended Phil Way's Fourth of July cookout in Pleasant Garden, then returned to Greensboro to ride in the Kirkwood parade and deliver a speech for the Fun Fourth program and fireworks at the White Oak Amphitheater.
Coble met with constituents with appointments in his Greensboro office on Tuesday.
