Republican U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson announced he will file for reelection on Feb. 24 in the new 9th Congressional District of North Carolina.
“As Fort Bragg’s Congressman, I have a proven track record as a conservative who knows how to get things done for our community,” said Hudson in a press release. “You can count on me to stand up to the mandates, threats to our Second Amendment, and big government socialist policies hurting our economy and your family. I look forward to remaining Fort Bragg’s Congressman and again earning the support of the people of the new 9th District.”
Hudson was first elected in 2012.
Hudson is currently or has previously represented eight of the nine counties in the newly-configured 9th District that includes Chatham, Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Moore, Randolph, Richmond, and Scotland counties. He currently has district offices in Cumberland and Moore counties and previously had an office in Richmond County.
Hudson grew up in Charlotte and graduated from Myers Park High School. He then attended UNC Charlotte, serving as Student Body President before receiving his Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science.
Hudson, his wife, Renee, and their son, Lane, live in Concord.
