RALEIGH – U.S. Rep. David Price, a Democrat, announced Monday he will retire from Congress at the end of his term in 2022.
Price announced the news in an interview with television station WRAL.
“It is a dream come true to be in this position and I’ve never lost that sense of amazement,” Price told WRAL about his years in Washington, D.C.
He has represented the state for more than 30 years and was first elected in 1986.
“David Price has served the people of North Carolina for 34 years with integrity and distinction. Though we almost never agreed on policy, David is an honest broker who I worked with many times to advance the interests of our state and nation. I particularly appreciate David’s commitment to our men and women in uniform,” said U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson (R-08). “He never turned me down when I asked for his help on behalf of our servicemembers at Fort Bragg. Renee and I wish David and Lisa all the best as they look to begin the next chapter of their lives.”
Immediately after the announcement, the Raleigh News & Observer said that state Sen. Wiley Nickel, who started a campaign committee well before the Census data gave the state an additional seat, would likely run for the position. The outlet also mentioned former state Sen. Floyd McKissick as a possible candidate.
