Statement on North Carolina Redistricting

Serving as the voice in Washington for the people of North Carolina’s Tenth Congressional District is a tremendous honor and even greater responsibility. While I’ve accomplished a great deal during my time in Congress, I recognize there is still more work to be done, which is why I plan to run for reelection in the Tenth District.

Under the new lines passed by the North Carolina General Assembly, I’m thankful I’ll continue to represent the people of Catawba County and my home county, Lincoln. In the weeks and months ahead, I look forward to getting reacquainted with old friends throughout Iredell County while also getting to know the people of Forsyth, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin Counties.  

While I’m excited about this new opportunity, I am sad that at the end of next year, I will no longer represent so many dear friends. But because of the partisan litigation led by Eric Holder and Democratic special interest groups, this is the reality we face. Throughout my years serving the people of Buncombe, Cleveland, Gaston, Polk, and Rutherford Counties, my family and I have met countless wonderful people and–while I will no longer represent them–we will always value the relationships we’ve made. I’m so thankful I’ve had the opportunity to serve you.

Our country faces many challenges but I’m confident with President Trump in the White House and conservative leadership in Congress, we can continue to make life better for all Americans. Over the next year, I look forward to making the case why I’m the best person to serve as the Tenth District’s conservative voice in Washington. 

Thank you and God Bless,
