Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has announced her plans to seek reelection in 2024 in North Carolina’s recently redrawn 5th Congressional District, which will cover most of northwest North Carolina.

“The North Carolina General Assembly has done its Constitutionally-mandated duty,” Foxx said. “North Carolina’s elected legislators worked hard to draw new congressional district maps that kept most of the current 5th Congressional District intact, which I was pleased to see. These maps are reasonable and the people of North Carolina deserve certainty about the borders of their congressional districts. The courts should refrain from meddling in the constitutionally sound political processes of our state. I am thrilled to be running for reelection and hope to once again serve the wonderful communities of northwest North Carolina in Congress.”

“Now, more than ever, America needs committed, reliable and experienced leadership,” Foxx said. “The world is growing increasingly hostile to our principles of freedom and liberty for all while our allies like Israel are continually under threat by terrorist groups and rogue nation-states. At the same time, our nation’s toughest problems, including the unsustainable growth of government and runaway inflation crippling everyday Americans’ pocketbooks, are straining the very fabric of our nation and threatening the American Dream for our children and grandchildren. Now is the time to elect conservative leaders who will fight for the tried and tested conservative solutions that will protect our traditions of limited government while securing our place as the respected leader of the free world.”

Foxx is the chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, where she has a reputation as a no-nonsense legislator and educator who puts common sense solutions into practice. She is widely recognized for her successes challenging the Biden administration’s big government policies, reining in wasteful government spending, fighting for border security, enacting conservative solutions that curtail the growth of government and for standing up for the unborn and for North Carolina families.
