Republican David Rouzer gets another chance to win the North Carolina congressional district he lost two years ago by a razor-thin margin
Incumbent U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers and former state Sen. David Rouzer won Republican Party primaries on Tuesday in closely watched North Carolina congressional races.
Two years ago, Republican David Rouzer lost to Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre by just 654 votes - a razor-thin margin of 0.2 percent among the nearly 337,000 ballots cast.
U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has injected himself into the May Republican primary for an eastern North Carolina congressional district.
Republican challenger David Rouzer has requested a recount in the race for North Carolina's 7th Congressional District.
"I have a stellar conservative record for people to look at," Rouzer said. "Everything I championed in the state legislature - welfare reform, regulatory reform, cutting taxes, cutting spending - are the same things I'll focus on at the federal level."
"All my work has been focused on our farmers, our small business owners and our entrepreneurs, getting government off of their backs so they can grow the economy and create jobs," Rouzer said. "Contrast that with my opponent, who spent his entire working career defending criminals and advertising on his law firm's website to sue businesses with slip-and-fall cases."
