Gastonia, NC – Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10), who filed for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives today, released the following statement:
"Today, I seek to continue the great privilege of representing the people of western North Carolina. I want to ease the burden on middle class families, and to continue working with technology and innovation to grow wages and bring quality jobs to our region. At the same time, I'll continue to fight unfair trade deals and out-of-control government growth.
"Even in a broken and dysfunctional Washington, I will work to make life better for folks in our area. I am grateful for the support of my wife, Giulia, and the prayers of our family and friends as I ask for the support of voters in the Tenth District."
