Cathy Wright announces run for NC House

Cathy Wright (R-Chatham County) announced that she will run for the open seat in House District 54, which now includes all of Chatham County and parts of Lee County. Wright ran for the State House in 2010. “I earned 43% of the vote against a 30-year, well-entrenched legislator, the former Speaker Joe Hackney. With new voting district lines, the House district is now a more favorable place for a conservative win, and I plan to win.” Wright currently serves as the Chair of the Chatham County Republican Party.
