Patrick McHenry keeps seat

Posted by Sarah Hildmann

Republican Represenative Patrick McHenry will hold on to his seat in North Carolina's 10th Congressional District.  This district includes the rural foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

He beat Democratic opponent Daniel Johnson with 57 percent of the vote to Johnson's 43 percent.

Among issues near and dear to McHenry's heart, one of them was to cut the federal tax rate for low and middle-income residents.
