Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC)

Virginia Foxx is a grandmother, former small business owner, state legislator and life-long educator.  Her leadership is driven by real-world experiences growing up, raising a family, working hard and living in North Carolina.  Virginia is best known for her strong conservative ideals and sticking to her principles.

First elected in 2005, Virginia Foxx is one of the hardest working people on Capitol Hill.  In 2017 she became Chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. This leadership position gave her a new conduit to channel her life’s experience in education and her passion for limited government and accountability towards real solutions that help Americans from all walks of life.

Virginia and her husband Tom reside in the Grandfather Mountain Community in Watauga County along with their daughter and two grandchildren.
