The encouragement I’ve received to enter the race to become North Carolina’s next United States Senator is truly humbling.  But I already have the best job in North Carolina. Representing the people of North Carolina’s 5th Congressional District while working to encourage job growth, repeal ObamaCare, and return decision-making power in education back to our state is where my heart and focus lie.

It is my hope to continue serving 5th District residents in the House of Representatives and see those goals accomplished for the betterment of all of North Carolina. North Carolina deserves a United States Senator who is committed to increasing freedom and also to reducing the size of Washington’s footprint in our lives. That starts with electing a Senator who is committed to undoing President Obama’s job-crushing heath care overhaul and getting our outrageous national deficit under control. Our conservative candidate for Senate will have my utmost support.
