Will Democrat-turned-Republican Congressman Walter Jones turn back to the party of his father?

That’s the rumor in Raleigh this week.

Jones was a Democratic member of the State House and a Democratic Congressional candidate before he became a Republican and won his U.S. House seat in 1994. Before that, Jones worked for Governor Jim Hunt. Jones’ father, of course, was a long-time Democratic congressman.

Jones has been on the outs with GOP leaders in Washington since speaking out against the Iraq war.

We’d welcome you back, Congressman.
