Filing for elected offices begins

U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson filed this morning to run for re-election in the North Carolinas 8th Congressional District, his office said in a statement.
The 8th District includes part of Rowan County and stretches east to Lumberton.
Its one of the many offices representing Rowan residents with filing opening today and running through the end of the month. Others include Rowan County commissioner, sheriff, clerk of court, district attorney and General Assembly.
Filing for most of those seats opens at noon at the Rowan County Board of Elections in the county administrative building, 130 W. Innes St.

Hudsons office noted that last week, the National Journal rated the freshman Republican congressman as the 12th most conservative member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I am running for re-election to continue the fight against failed policies like Obamacare and to push for common sense solutions in Congress like a balanced budget amendment and real job creation,” Hudson said in the news release.  “Now more than ever, we need conservative leaders who will stand up against Washington’s big-government agenda and put power back into the hands of the American people.”
 The 2014 primary election date is May 6 and the general election is Nov. 4.
