AC-T: 3 WNC Politicos Seek Key Roles

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 22, 2007

The article is here, and an excerpt below:

Charles Thomas

Charles Thomas, an Asheville Republican, is the newest delegation member.

He narrowly defeated Democrat Doug Jones in November to capture the seat held by former Rep. Wilma Sherrill for six terms. Sherrill announced her retirement nearly a year ago after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

At 34, Thomas is one of the youngest members of the 2007 freshmen class. Newcomers rarely win positions of power during their first term. But Thomas will be watched to see how his style compares to Sherrill’s. She was considered an icon in the General Assembly for her determination to get resources to Western North Carolina.

Commentary

If his “style” is like Wilma Sherrill, then Charles Thomas will be a RINO.
