I’ve had the distinct honor and privilege of working with Senator Rucho on crucial issues impacting our State. Whether it was redistricting or tax reform, I always admired his honesty and held a deep respect for his commitment to principle. Our state would not be where we are—the leader in the Southeast—if not for the tireless efforts of folks like Bob. The State of North Carolina is a better place to live as a result of the dedication and service that Senator Rucho has selflessly given to all of us. The legislature will miss his presence and I wish him nothing but continued success.
