Sign language: Robert Hurt announces reelection run
Congressman Robert Hurt was in town Monday to kick off his reelection bid for the 5th District. Local Republicans including supervisors Ken Boyd and Rodney Thomas gathered at Albemarle Square shopping center to show support for Hurt's candidacy.
Also in attendance: Some who didn't and who carried signs for Hurt's Dem opponent, John Douglass.
That led to a battle of the signs in front of the cameras and podium as Hurt rallied the party faithful and reminded them of his economic message: "It's the spending, stupid."
