Foxx Throws a Punch at Robinson

Virginia Foxx has struck back at one of her rivals in the Republican 5th district congressional race, Vernon Robinson, who was behind the launching of a Federal Elections Commission investigation into Foxx's finances.

Now a close ally of Foxx's, Margaret Plemmons Foster, former chairwoman of the Forsyth County GOP, has asked the State Board of Elections to investigate Robinson's money-raising. (Raleigh News & Observer story here)

Perhaps a third candidate, Ed Broyhill, will waltz in and take the nomination while these two are locked in their own version of mud-wrestling.
