Press Release:

    Today, conservative Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney endorsed Dr. Joan Perry for Congress in the NC-3 Special Election to fill the seat of the late Congressman Walter Jones. Recognized as an expert in national security and foreign policy, Cheney was elected in November 2018 by her colleagues to serve as the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives as the Chair of the House Republican Conference. She is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and Natural Resources Committee after serving previously at the State Department as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for the Middle East. A former analyst for Fox News, Cheney works tirelessly to decrease regulations, promote jobs, and strengthen America's position globally.

    "I'm excited to support Dr. Joan Perry because of her common sense approach to solving problems which we need desperately in Washington, DC," said Cheney. "As a mother of five children, Dr. Perry understands the challenges straining everyday American families. Dr. Perry's experience as a pediatrician and healthcare provider is invaluable to our fight to solve the healthcare issues facing Eastern North Carolina and the rest of the country. I am proud of Dr. Joan Perry's willingness to step up to the plate, and I look forward to serving with her in Washington."

    "Liz Cheney has a deep understanding of what it takes to keep our nation secure and a proven track record of dedication to conservative principles," said Perry. "As someone who's never run for political office before, I am grateful for her leadership in finding conservative solutions to our most pressing issues and admire her willingness to stand up to liberals opposing President Trump."

    Dr. Joan Perry is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, where she was one of the first women to earn the Morehead Scholarship. During medical school at UNC, she married her husband, Jimbo, and stayed there for an additional three years to complete her residency in pediatrics. With the birth of her first son during medical school and second son during internship/residency, Joan quickly learned how to juggle the demands of motherhood and a career. Upon residency completion, she moved to Kinston where she and Jimbo added three more sons to the line-up. She later earned appointments to the UNC Board of Governors, Gov. Pat McCrory's health and human services transition team, and Gov. Jim Martin's North Carolina Day Care Commission. A dedicated triathlete, she and her husband have housed more than 20 youth and young adults who needed a loving home. They helped to start Grace Fellowship Church over 25 years ago and remain active members today.
