Nifong Now Faces Republican Challenger

Mike Nifong's pursuit of the Duke rape charges regardless of the evident collapse of the case has generated at least one reaction -- he now will face a Republican challenger in the general election. La Shawn Barber has followed the case closely and has more on this development. Jeralynn at TalkLeft has also covered this story with precision and excellence. Be sure to visit both sites to catch up on the story.

UPDATE: I had Nifong's first name incorrectly as Matt instead of Mike. Thanks to CQ reader and Duke student Mike J for the correction.
