Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has endorsed Richard Hudson for Congress in North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District.
Hudson will face Scott Keadle of Iredell in July 17 runoff for the Republican nomination. The winner will go on to face Democratic U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell in the November General Election.
Huckabee said Hudson is the “kind of man we need in Congress.”
“Pro-life, pro-family and pro-jobs, I know Richard will be a consistent vote for conservative values in North Carolina,” Huckabee said in a statement. “Further, I know Richard will be a solid vote to repeal Obamacare and will never support a stimulus, bailout or government giveaway. Richard has my full support and trust.”
