BOONE — Fifth District Rep. Virginia Foxx filed for election Tuesday with the North Carolina Board of Elections. Foxx is running for re-election in North Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District, which covers much of northwest North Carolina.
“North Carolina families want someone with a strong track-record of championing conservative solutions to the problems facing our nation,” Foxx said. “The folks I speak with across the Fifth Congressional District are constantly telling me that they like someone who has the backbone to stand up to big-government liberals in Washington—and I’m confident that my strong record of doing just that will speak for itself.
“That’s why I am excited to be running for re-election, because I know that conservative ideas work and I’m not afraid to make that case to the voters,” Foxx said. “It’s time for the Obama administration’s era of incompetence and big-government boondoggles to come to an end. The people of North Carolina are ready to put President Obama’s failed liberal ideology out to pasture and put time-tested conservative solutions to work.”
Foxx is widely recognized for her successes reining in wasteful government spending, enacting common-sense solutions that curtail the growth of government and for standing up for the unborn and for North Carolina families. As a former small business owner, Foxx also knows the struggles that job creators face and is dedicated to eliminating outdated and burdensome government regulations.
“It’s time for conservative solutions that will create a better America for everyone—not just for government bureaucrats and Washington liberals. I promise that I will continue to fight tirelessly to put conservative ideas to work if given the honor of representing the Fifth District in Congress.”
Foxx is considered one of North Carolina’s most conservative members of Congress. Both the National Journal magazine and the American Conservative Union have ranked Foxx as one of the most conservative members of Congress for her strong track record of supporting common-sense solutions to America’s problems.
North Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District includes all of Alexander, Ashe, Alleghany, Davie, Watauga, Wilkes and Yadkin counties as well as parts of Catawba, Davidson, Forsyth, Iredell and Rowan counties.
