John Forlines, the founder of the Bank of Granite (doesn't that sound solid?), is looking to try a new career in politics. The Democrat has announced a run against North Carolina GOP Rep. Edgar Starnes.
Forlines is 90, which makes him eight years older than the current most senior member of the chamber, Dewey Hill. "My age gives me a pretty big edge because I've had a lot of good experience," he tells The News & Observer.
p.s. I snagged his picture off the bank's Web site -- I wonder how old it is. The styles look right out of the early 80s, to my eyes.
