Boone, NC—Congresswoman Virginia Foxx filed for reelection today with the North Carolina Board of Elections.
Foxx is running for re-election in North Carolina’s 5th Congressional District, which covers much of northwest North Carolina.
“North Carolina voters from all walks of life want government that is responsive, conservative and that shares their values,” Foxx said. “My track record is clear: I am fighting to make government work for the people by cutting taxes, fixing tough problems and enacting conservative solutions.”
“Folks all over the 5th District tell me they want more freedom, not more government. That’s why I am running for Congress—to help keep big government in check and ensure North Carolina values have a strong and unwavering voice in Congress.”
“There are currently two visions competing for the future direction of our country. One vision, which I reject, is that more government is the solution to our problems. The other vision is that the people—citizens who know and care about their families, their communities and their country—hold the solutions.”
“When government grows, freedom shrinks. I know that North Carolina families want someone who will stand up for principles like this and who will fight for conservative solutions that don’t take away freedom or make government bigger.”
“I’m excited to keep fighting for those ideas and to make the case for conservative solutions to voters, because I’ve seen them work time after time. I promise to continue fighting tirelessly if given the honor of representing the Fifth District in Congress.”
Foxx is the current chair of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, where she has already made her mark as a no-nonsense legislator focused on putting common sense solutions into practice. She is widely recognized for her successes reining in wasteful government spending, enacting commonsense 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owner, Foxx also knows the struggles that job creators face and is dedicated to keeping taxes low and eliminating outdated and burdensome government regulations.
Foxx is considered one of North Carolina’s most conservative members of Congress. In fact, 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 commonsense solutions to America’s problems.
