  • Davis is serving his first term in Congress after serving in the North Carolina State Senate. Graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy, he earned the rank of captain in the Air Force. His top priority in the House is to expand access to affordable health care because it is vital to keeping rural hospitals open.
  • Manning, who won reelection in North Carolina’s newly redrawn 6th CD, is the granddaughter of immigrants who fled religious persecution. After graduating from Harvard and the University of Michigan Law School, she became an immigration attorney. In Congress she has introduced bills to make health care more affordable, to lower the cost of prescription drugs, to create jobs and bolster United States manufacturing, and to invest in education.
  • Nickel was elected in 2022. Prior to entering Congress, he served as North Carolina State Senator, attorney, and small business owner, as well as working in the Obama administration. Losing his father to lung cancer at a young age, Nickel sets access to health care as a top priority.

Redistricting disputes in North Carolina could shape the 2024 race for control of the US House. In fact, the gerrymandered lines have already claimed one casualty – current U.S. Rep. Jeff Jackson. Jackson, a former attorney and Army veteran now in his first term, is not running for reelection. Instead, Jackson is seeking the post of state attorney general.

Overall, the NC 2024 Congressional elections promise to be closely contested races. At present, the GOP holds seven seats, while the Democratic Party holds seven seats as well. The election results could have a significant impact on the balance of power in the U.S. House of Representatives.
