Sen. Chuck Edwards Has Nearly $330,000 On Hand for Congressional Run | Beaufort County Now | End-of-year report is show of strength ahead of 2022 primary

Press Release:

    Hendersonville, NC     End-of-year reports filed with the Federal Election Commission will show that North Carolina State Senator Chuck Edwards, who only announced on November 30 that he would run for the state's 14th Congressional District in Congress, had nearly $330,000 on hand for his congressional campaign at the end of 2021.

    "I'm excited that our campaign starts off in such a strong position." Edwards said. "Our ability to quickly assemble a winning team and to attract resources illustrates the excitement of conservative mountain people to send an area native and Washington outsider to Congress. Contributors are telling me they're tired of DC lip service and they want a proven winner - one with a solid record of cutting taxes, balancing budgets, securing elections, and defending our Second Amendment. My record uniquely positions us to be successful in this race."

    The year-end figure represents a quick start for the Edwards campaign, allowing him to build momentum into 2022. That momentum is bolstered by the fact that Edwards has represented nearly 30% of the newly-drawn 14th Congressional District in the North Carolina Senate.

    "It's a show of approval from those I've represented," Edwards said of his cash-on-hand figure. "We are committed to amassing the resources necessary to win an expensive primary, and then taking the fight to the Democrats to ensure that Nancy Pelosi's reign as Speaker of the House comes to an end."

    Edwards, a successful businessman who lives in Hendersonville, was first elected to the North Carolina Senate in 2016. Since then, he has secured key legislative victories to reduce taxes and spending, support law enforcement, crack down on sanctuary cities, and lessen regulatory burdens on businesses.

    The newly drawn 14th Congressional District includes a vast majority of the westernmost counties in North Carolina.
