U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia will visit Wilmington Feb. 17 to attend two fundraisers for David Rouzer, who is campaigning for North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District.

The first fundraiser will be in the early evening in the home of Wilmington residents Scott and Jane Sullivan. The second is an evening reception at the home of Wendy and Dell Murphy in Wallace.

Rouzer, who lives in Johnston County, will face New Hanover County Commissioner Woody White in the GOP primary. Rep. Mike McIntyre, the Democrat from Lumberton who has represented 7th District for 18 years, has announced he is retiring. In 2012, McIntyre narrowly defeated Rouzer.

Cantor also traveled to Wilmington to support Rouzer’s candidacy in 2012.
