A retired newspaper publisher with deep connections in the 5th District, Chuck Hubbard has a profound understanding of how Democracy is supposed to work, and how to go about fixing it.

"My name is Chuck Hubbard, and I am the Democrat running to defeat Virginia Foxx. You may remember Foxx since she was the Congresswoman who told reporters to 'shut up' when asked about her attempts to overturn the election. Well, I won’t shut up. I’m running for Congress to remove Foxx from office and flip North Carolina’s 5th blue. Share this and join me!"
