Stomping for Nesbitt

Perennial Republican candidates R.L. Clark and Don Yelton are vying for the chance to challenge North Carolina Senate Majority Leader Martin Nesbitt this fall in the 49th District, which includes a chunk of Buncombe County. Clark served two terms in the state Senate in the 1990s, and Yelton most recently mounted an unsuccessful bid for the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners in 2008, the latest in a string of unsuccessful political campaigns. Clark and Yelton are old friends and comrades-in-arms, having been active in the Carolina Stompers, a conservative activist group founded by Chad Nesbitt, the stepson of the man these two hope to challenge.

    Comrades-in-arms eh? That sounds suspiciously unamerican to me. Has anyone actually seen Yelton birth certificate?
