Newly elected and re-elected lawmakers on Capitol Hill took the oath of office, including North Carolina congressmen G.K. Butterfield and Greg Murphy.

Congressman Butterfield tells WITN he’s especially interested in providing infrastructure relief to rural communities, including investments for Wayne and neighboring counties.

Congressman Murphy tells WITN he hopes and prays the next session will be one of healing for the nation’s democracy.
