Gastonia, NC—U.S. Representative Patrick McHenry (R-NC) today endorsed Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) for re-election to the United States House of Representatives in North Carolina’s newly re-drawn 5th Congressional District in 2020.
“Virginia Foxx fights hard for her constituents and for our state, and I am very pleased that she is running for re-election in the re-drawn 5th Congressional District. I give her my whole-hearted endorsement because I know that she will continue to work tirelessly for the conservative solutions that she has always embraced on behalf of North Carolina,” McHenry said.
“While I will miss representing the communities that were shifted into the 5th District when the new congressional map was drawn, I can’t think of anyone better to serve these amazing communities than Virginia Foxx. She understands North Carolina and has a powerful track-record of listening to her constituents and fighting to solve the problems they face.”
“I’m honored to receive Congressman McHenry’s endorsement in the re-drawn 5th Congressional District,” Foxx said. “Congressman McHenry has served much of the area that was added to the 5th Congressional District for many years now and is a trusted, conservative voice in these wonderful communities. I am looking forward to earning the votes of his constituents in the upcoming March primary and in the November 2020 election.”
