Moore makes congressional run official and signs term limits pledge | Eastern North Carolina Now

    North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, formally announced his run for Congress on Tuesday in North Carolina's newly shaped 14th Congressional District. In a video, Moore said he was proud to serve with a conservative Republican majority in the state's General Assembly. He listed legislative policy accomplishments, including voter ID, and criticized the Biden economy.

    Rep. Jeff Jackson, D-NC14, announced on TikTok two weeks ago that he will not seek re-election in his district due to what he called "political corruption" in the congressional maps. Jackson is instead running for North Carolina attorney general in 2024, where his primary duty would be to defend state laws. Jackson could face Republican Dan Bishop, the current congressman representing the state's 9th Congressional District.

    As his run becomes official, Moore signed a pledge this week to support term limits if elected to Congress in 2024. A press release from the group U.S. Term Limits called Moore "a champion for congressional term limits."

    "As Speaker, Moore has presided over a body of citizen-legislators who serve part time for low pay and remain accountable to the folks back home," said Nick Tomboulides, executive director of U.S. Term Limits. "Unfortunately, Congress shares none of these features. By fighting for term limits, Moore will help make Congress work for the people again."

    Some members of North Carolina's current congressional delegation had already signed the pledge, including Sens. Thom Tillis and Ted Budd, and Reps. Greg Murphy, Richard Hudson, Chuck Edwards, and Bishop. The pledge does not promise to limit members' own terms, but rather a pledge of support for legislation capping the terms of all members of Congress.

    Moore announced in July that he would not seek re-election to the North Carolina House of Representatives. Candidate filing begins on Dec. 4 for the March 5 primary election. The general election will be held Nov. 5, 2024.

    "It's time to fix Washington, just as we fixed Raleigh over the past decade," Moore said in the video.
