Vernon Robinson defends South Carolina campaigning for Obama in 2008

(By Wesley Young, Winston-Salem Journal) - The chairman of the Forsyth County GOP is questioning why a former primary foe, Republican congressional candidate Vernon Robinson, campaigned for Barack Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary in South Carolina.

Robinson said his campaigning was part of a Rush Limbaugh-inspired plan to disrupt the Democrats and keep the rivalry between Democratic candidates Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton alive as long as possible.

Robinson said it's "ridiculous" for anyone to think he has ever supported Obama. He said Nathan Tabor is just bitter over losing the 2004 GOP primary for the 5th Congressional District, a seat Robinson also ran for. The seat was won by Republican Virginia Foxx.
