Boone, NC—Congresswoman Virginia Foxx filed for reelection today with the North Carolina Board of Elections. Foxx is running for reelection in North Carolina’s 5th Congressional District, which covers much of northwest North Carolina including Alexander County
“Our nation is at a historic crossroads,” Foxx said. “President Obama and his liberal allies have tried to take us down a road of government coercion, higher taxes and soul-crushing regulation. North Carolina voters from all walks of life tell me virtually every day that we cannot go any farther down that road.
“They are right—which is why I’m running for Congress.
“I’ve been fighting to keep government in check, to lower taxes and give Americans more freedom from government mandates and regulations. North Carolina families want someone who will stand on principle and who has a strong track record of fighting for, and enacting, conservative solutions to the problems facing our nation.
“It’s time to put an end to the Obama administration’s era of incompetence and big-government boondoggles. I’m confident that my record of holding this administration and its liberal allies accountable speaks for itself. So I promise to continue fighting tirelessly to put conservative ideas to work if given the honor of representing the Fifth District in Congress.”
North Carolina’s Congressional primaries are currently scheduled to be held on June 7, 2016.
