Need an early indication of what to expect this election season in North Carolina? Watch Vernon Robinson's new television advertisement airing tonight on Fox during the Republican presidential primary debate.
Robinson -- who is known for his shock politic -- calls Mitt Romney a "cowardly sell out" and says the only thing he has in commmon with President Barack Obama is "a good tan."
Robinson is running as a Republican in the crowded race to challenge U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell in the 8th Congressional District. Kissell is one of the most endangered Democrats in the nation. Robinson has run for Congress twice in the past and fashions himself "the black Jesse Helms."
National Journal's Hotline has more details on the one-minute ad. The campaign wouldn't disclose the cost of the buy.
