Etheridge Sworn In To 6th Term In US House - Second District Congressman Bob Etheridge was sworn into office Thursday in the U.S. Capitol. Representative Etheridge (D-Lillington) was elected in November to his sixth term in Congress, defeating Dan Mansell of Selma . Etheridge said his priorities in the 110th Congress include writing a new Farm Bill for North Carolina farmers, raising the minimum wage, protecting communities by implementing the 9-11 Commission’s recommendations, passing ethics legislation to clean up Congress, and to cut interest rates in half on student loans.
Etheridge is a PAC money taking liberal who has done a few things right, but I disagree with him the majority of the time. I wish it was Mansell who was being sworn in, but Etheridge is a local boy who is hard to beat.
