McHenry Statement on Coble Retirement
Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) issued the following statement today regarding Congressman Howard Coble's announcement that he will not seek reelection:
"I am sorry to hear that the Dean, Howard Coble will not be running for reelection in 2014. As North Carolina's longest serving Republican House member, he has had an immeasurable impact on the state he loves so much and its Congressional delegation. Any North Carolinian that has had the pleasure of meeting Howard undoubtedly was witness to his uncanny knowledge of every high school in the state's mascot. Howard is a truly wonderful man and the epitome of an honorable public servant. His good nature and kindness will be dearly missed by all here in Congress."
