Today, Republican congressional candidate Wayne King signed a pledge to vote for term limits on Congress if elected.
King, a conservative pro-Trump Republican and former
top N.C. staff member for retiring U.S. Congressman Mark Meadows, is running to
replace Meadows in North Carolina’s 11th District.
“People here in the mountains are fed up with professional politicians,” King said. “These people get elected, go up to Washington and stay there.”
“I believe Thomas Jefferson had it right when
he envisioned a Congress made up of citizen legislators, not office hunters and
eternal incumbents. If elected, I will support the legislation proposed by U.S.
U.S. Term Limits is a non-partisan nonprofit organization that advocates for term limits at all levels of government. The organization asks signatories to “pledge that, as a member of Congress, I will cosponsor and vote for the U.S. Term Limits amendment of three House terms and two Senate terms and no longer limit.”
King is a Western North Carolina native and former NCGOP official, and has spent the past seven years as Congressman Meadows’ district director and deputy chief of staff
