For the state of North Carolina our two Senators are Richard Burr and Thom Tillis. The House of Representative that we have may vary because of the different districts, the one that I have is Craig Horn. Craig Horn has been in the House since 2011 and is up for reelection in 2016. Prior to getting elected for the House of Representative he was Maryland’s Council Member. He is married to Lorraine and they have four children. Craig is a member of the Republican Party. I think the interest groups that will like Craig Horn are CREST and National Riffle Association.

An interest group that will not be for Craig is anyone that has to do with allowing women to say whether or not they can have an abortion, however Craig is not completely against it in cases such as rape.

He does not seem like too much of a hard core conservative that will get Democrats…
