    Fifteenth Republican Incumbent Quits House

    Rep. Howard Coble, a Korean War veteran and 15-term House Republican from North Carolina, today became the 15th House Republican incumbent to decide not to seek reelection to the House of Representatives in next fall's congressional midterm elections.
    Coble becomes the ninth Republican to retire, while six others have launched campaigns for the Senate.
    The aging Republican Party, which mourned the death of its longest-serving member, Rep. Bill Young, last month, could present House Speaker John Boehner with his toughest defense of the Speaker's gavel next year.
