White's tweet raises speculation about possible rematch in NC7 GOP primary

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Former congressional candidate Woody White is raising speculation about another possible run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

White, a current New Hanover County Commissioner, used his “Woody4Congress” twitter account to post a message Tuesday, regarding what would be a rematch of the 2014 District 7 Republican primary against David Rouzer.


Rouzer defeated White and Chris Andrade in the primary, getting 53 percent of the vote to White’s 40 percent and Andrade’s seven percent. Rouzer went on to win the District 7 seat by defeating Jonathan Barfield and J. Wesley Casteen.

White would not offer any additional information when reached in the minutes after he posted the tweet. Several people inside the North Carolina Republican Party said they had not heard any firm plans about White running against Rouzer in 2016. 

White would have quite the hill to climb financially if he were to get in the race. The Woody White for Congress Committee filed a termination report with the Federal Elections Committee in January, and has not submitted any reports since then.  In its’ most recent FEC filing, the October Quarterly Report, the David Rouzer for Congress committee reported having $400,379.86 cash on hand entering the upcoming election year.

An amendment approved Thursday included the substitution. The amended bill, which went on to pass by a vote of 104-1, now makes the “Azalea Festival in Wilmington the official azalea festival in the state of North Carolina”.
