Tech Entrepreneur, Brad Murphy, Announces Campaign for North Carolina's 1st Congressional District

Long-time North Carolinian and tech entrepreneur Brad Murphy has launched his campaign for North Carolina's newly redrawn Congressional District 1, according to Brad Murphy for Congress Campaign. The announcement comes after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the 2022 North Carolina Congressional election must use the maps drawn by the North Carolina Supreme Court. 

"I have spent the last 40 years of my career in the tech industry, not on Capitol Hill, being a disruptor helping companies and institutions reinvent themselves, and that is exactly what I will do once I am elected to serve the great people of North Carolina's 1st Congressional District," stated Brad Murphy. "For far too long, Democrats have ignored the hardworking people of our rural communities, and as a Congressman I will put America first, including leading the fight to secure our southern border, restoring parental rights to our children's education, and prioritizing broadband and healthcare innovations. Finally, I am the only Republican candidate for Congress who brings a vision and track record for how to build thousands of lucrative new economy jobs for our rural population in eastern North Carolina," added the political outsider and global innovator.

The Republican Primary Election will take place on May 17 with early voting lasting from April 28 to May 14. To learn more about Brad and his campaign, visit
