Hudson is in his 3rd term representing the 8th district of North Carolina, and sits on Agriculture, Education and the Workforce, and Homeland Security. He is a member of the Republican Study Committee. After a slower start, Hudson has pushed himself to the next level, boosting his legislative score to 79.6% this past Congress. While not great compared to come, it puts him only 2.5 points from matching the partisan make-up of his district. Since Trump’s election, Hudson has shifted to the right, and the 3rd is better for it. Pressure will be needed, along with careful watching, to make sure this is more than a temporary turn.
