U.S. Representative-elect Richard Hudson (NC)
DU: As an incoming congressman, please tell us a little about your background.

Representative-elect Hudson: I am a lifelong hunter and sportsman with deep family roots in North Carolina’s 8th district. I was raised in North Carolina and attended University of North Carolina Charlotte where I earned a bachelor’s degree in history and political science.
 
I am a conservative with a background in business and public service. I served North Carolina’s 8th district as District Director for Congressman Robin Hayes. I also served as a Chief of Staff in Washington for five years, gaining valuable insight into the problems with Congress today.
 
I am currently the owner of Cabarrus Marketing Group, which provides marketing, strategic communications consulting and business development services to small businesses.

DU: What are your legislative priorities for the 113th Congress that will affect sportsmen?

Representative-elect Hudson: As an avid hunter and outdoorsman, I will work with this Administration, federal agencies and other policy makers to advance the interests of sportsmen through policies that address conservation issues. I will support and promote common-sense legislation that protects our hunting and recreational shooting heritage, encourages land and water conservation and utilizes our renewable energy sources more efficiently.
