    C-SPAN has new rankings for the most-talkative members of the U.S. House, and one of North Carolina's longest tenured representatives has made the top 10 list.

    U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, who has represented the state's 5th congressional district since 2004, ranked 8th on the list of those who have spoken the greatest number of days on the floor of Congress. Foxx - who recently won re-election 63% to 37% over her Democratic challenger - clocked in at speaking 93 days during the 117th Congress.

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas registered the most number of days speaking at 141, followed by Rep. Buddy Carter of Georgia at 134 days, Rep. Glenn Thompson of Pennsylvania at 127 days, Rep. Doug LaMalfa of California at 122 days, Rep. Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin at 113 days, Rep. Mariannette Jane Miller-Meeks of Iowa at 97 days, and Rep. Frank Pallone of New Jersey at 96 days.

    The numbers are current as of Dec. 5, meaning the rankings could change depending on remaining debates in Congress.
