“Forsyth GOP chairman Nathan Tabor says he deliberately took his time on deciding whether to run against incumbent U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C., looking at the race from every angle and collecting advice.
But state officials said Tabor was just a little too late today when he dashed into a room at the N.C. Board of Elections office in Raleigh to file to run for the 6th Congressional District that Coble represents. Filing closed at noon today.
Tabor, who leads the county’s Republican Party, disputes that he was too late, and said a receptionist told him he was just in time to file. Tabor plans an appeal.
… Bartlett said he told Tabor how to go about appealing his decision, a matter that will be heard March 6.”
