Committee Assignments


Senator Rachel Hunt is an attorney and a mom. She spent the first part of her legal career working for women and children,defending them in court when no one else could. When she got married and had kids, she spent her spare time volunteering to protect the public school system that would shape her kid's future. When they grew up, she ran for public office, beating a four-term incumbent in the NC House under gerrymandered maps - and she hasn't stopped fighting since. Over the five years since she was first elected, she's seen how the Trump Republicans have ruled with little accountability to the people of North Carolina. She's seen first-hand how far we've fallen from the North Carolina that her parents, former Gov. Jim and Carolyn Hunt envisioned.
