U.S. Rep. Edwards announces second run for Congress

Press releae from the office of Congressman Chuck Edwards:

U.S. Congressman Chuck Edwards, a Henderson County Republican representing North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, announced his candidacy for a second term in the U.S. House of Representatives today.
Edwards, a Western North Carolina native and businessman, was elected to his first congressional term in 2022 after serving three terms in the North Carolina Senate.
His work ethic and business acumen were quickly recognized in Washington, D.C., where he secured positions on the House Budget, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Oversight and Government Accountability committees.
Edwards was recently appointed to the powerful House Appropriations Committee, which is widely considered one of the most influential committees in the House of Representatives, as it holds the power of the purse and is responsible for all congressional expenditures. He is the only North Carolina member of Congress to hold a seat on that committee.
Chuck Edwards said, “Representing the citizens of the very mountains where I was born, raised a family, and built a business has been among the highest privileges of my life. My first term has been focused on proving myself in our nation’s capital, where I have secured strong committee appointments and have built a team to help make a difference in the lives of mountain families.
“I have been honored to work to restore our nation’s fiscal sanity, protect our freedoms, hold the Biden administration accountable, and enable Americans to succeed. But I can’t turn back now. There’s still plenty of work left to do. I hope the citizens of WNC will allow me the honor of returning to Washington and building upon my first term accomplishments to make a greater difference.”
