City Councilman Mike Barber was sporting a Zack Matheny for Congress lapel pin at today council retreat.
It wouldn't be the strangest thing in the world -- one council member supporting another council member's bid for higher office.
Except Matheny's a registered Republican; Barber's a registered Democrat and a former chairman of the Guilford County Democratic Party.
That's no big deal for Barber. He said the country needs people like Matheny -- young and energetic -- in Congress.
