Says Hudson’s Knowledge of District and Christian Principles Make Him Best Choice
May 21, 2012
Today, Fred Steen, a well-respected state Representative from Rowan County and former candidate for Congress in this year’s 8th District Republican primary, endorsed Richard Hudson for Congress.
“As a voter and resident of the 8th District, I believe we need a representative who has experience, passion and knowledge of our District,” said Steen. “Richard Hudson will be a true representative, someone who will serve the people of the 8th District well.”
Steen has a long history of service to areas within the 8th District. A lifelong resident of the district, Steen served as mayor of Landis for five terms. He has also served as Representative of North Carolina’s 76th District since 2004. Steen is known as one of the most effective legislators in the state, receiving a 100% conservative rating from the American Conservative Union last year.
“I have known Richard for 15 years and worked with him when he served on the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Board of Trustees,” Steen continued. “He is a hard worker and strives to do his best for those around him. In the course of this campaign, I have found him to be a man of faith and one who will stand for Christian principles in Congress. I am proud to endorse him.”
Hudson, recognized as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in the 8th District, recently finished first in the primary election on May 8th. Hudson won 10 of 12 counties, and garnered more than 32% of the vote in a five-way primary. He enjoys the most grassroots support and is the first candidate to organize all twelve counties in the district.
“Fred Steen is a man of integrity who has served the people of Rowan and Cabarrus County with honor and hard work for years,” said Hudson. “I am grateful to have his endorsement and will work to earn the support of thousands of 8th District voters who supported Fred in the primary.”
