The conservative group Citizens United Political Victory Fund has endorsed David Rouzer in the 7th Congressional District Republican primary, and contributed $5,000 to his campaign.

“David Rouzer is the conservative candidate in this primary election and CUPVF is proud to support him,” said David Bossie, president of Citizens United, in a prepared statement. “Republican primary voters should know that there is a stark contrast between David Rouzer and his moderate opponent.”

Rouzer, a former state senator from Johnston County, is facing Woody White, chairman of the New Hanover County Commissioners, in a GOP primary in the district, which includes all or parts of 12 southeastern North Carolina counties. New Hanover County Commissioner Jonathan Barfield is the only announced Democratic candidate. U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre, a Lumberton Democrat, has announced he wouldn’t seek re-election in the district.

Citizens United Political Victory Fund supports conservative candidates who want to reduce the size of government, lower taxes, cut spending and promote traditional family values, according to its website.
