Today, conservative Republican Don Webb announced that he will run for Congress in North Carolina’s sixth district. “I’m running for Congress because we have a sacred duty to our children and grandchildren: to leave them an America that is as free and as secure as the one we were born into,” said Don Webb.
“Many Republicans say they are committed to cutting the size and scope of government,” he said. “Yet, year after year, the same people forget their commitments and instead, add burdens to citizens by refusing to lead this nation responsibly. It’s time for a representative who will fight for less government control and more individual freedom.”
Don Webb is a veteran who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and served his country as a Naval officer for five years. Don has been a local businessman in High Point, NC for many years. He is a financial advisor and the manager of a local branch of a national wealth management institution.
Don Webb stressed that his campaign will focus on freedom, prosperity, and security. “More government control requires the sacrifice of individual liberty, which is unacceptable. Scandals at the IRS and the NSA have demonstrated the abuse of power at the highest levels of government. I am committed to reducing the federal government’s power, reducing the tax and regulatory burden on individuals and businesses, and securing the stability of our nation’s finances and border,” said Don Webb.
“Unfortunately, many of our congressmen do not remember their oath to ‘protect and defend the Constitution.’ The good folks of the sixth district need to know they can depend on me to keep that oath with the same dedication that I had during my years in military service,” stated Don Webb.
Don Webb is a member of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority. He is a member of High Point University’s Board of Visitors and the High Point Regional Health Foundation Board. Over the years, Don has been active in homeschooling organizations, crisis pregnancy centers, and Young Life. He has organized the High Point Veterans’ Day Parade for the last five years. He and his wife Susie have five adult children and four grandchildren. They are members of Community Bible Church in High Point.
Other candidates may include Rep. Howard Coble, who has voted repeatedly to raise the debt ceiling during the past twenty nine years, and Mark Walker, a music minister from Greensboro.
