Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Kathy Manning (NC-06) joined her colleagues to pass the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022 (NDAA) with bipartisan support. This legislation makes key investments to improve the lives of servicemembers and military families, while also strengthening our national security.

Rep. Manning wrote five amendments to the bill, including one requiring the military to consider the benefits of using electric vehicles for students at military installations.

“The passage of this year’s defense funding bill is an important step to ensuring the security of our nation by supporting our servicemembers in uniform,” said Rep. Manning. “I am proud to have all five of my amendments included in this legislation. These amendments will accelerate our shift towards clean energy usage in the military, express our collective concern for the safety of Afghan women and girls, and provide critical support for the evacuations of Americans and Afghan partners from Afghanistan.”

Wikipedia Entry

Kathy Ellen Manning (born December 3, 1956) is an American lawyer and politician from North Carolina. She is the U.S. representative from North Carolina’s 6th congressional district. The district is in the heart of the Piedmont Triad and includes Greensboro and most of Winston-Salem. She was the nominee for North Carolina’s 13th congressional district in the 2018 election, and ran for and won the neighboring 6th in the 2020 election after court-ordered redistricting.

Early life and education

Manning was born to a Jewish family in Detroit, Michigan, on December 3, 1956.[1][2] Her father worked for the Ford Motor Company for 40 years, and her mother was a public school teacher. Manning attended Harvard University, where she sang a cappella with the Radcliffe Pitches.[3][4] She also attended the University of Michigan Law School, earning a Juris Doctor.[5]

Early career

After graduating from college, Manning moved to Greensboro, her husband’s hometown, in 1987. She was the first woman to serve as board chair of the Jewish Federations of North America,[6] from 2009 to 2012.[7] She also was the founding board chair of Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools in New York.[8]

Elections

2018

In 2018, Manning ran against Republican incumbent Ted Budd for the United States House of Representatives in North Carolina’s 13th congressional district.[9] At the time, the district stretched from southwestern Greensboro to the northern exurbs of Charlotte. On paper, the district tilted Republican; Donald Trump had carried the district two years earlier with 53% of the vote. She lost to Budd, 51%–45%.

2020

After a court-ordered redistricting in 2019, Manning’s home in Greensboro was drawn into the neighboring 6th District, represented by three-term Republican Mark Walker. The new 6th included all of Guilford County and swept west to grab the more Democratic areas of neighboring Forsyth County, including almost all of Winston-Salem.[10] The old 6th included eastern Greensboro, as well as much of the eastern Triad and some outer suburbs of the Triangle.

On December 2, 2019, hours before the new map was issued, Manning announced she would run in the 6th.[11] The new district was significantly more compact and Democratic than its predecessor. Had it existed in 2016, Hillary Clinton would have won it with over 59% of the vote[12]–a near-mirror image of Trump’s 56% in the old 6th.[13] On paper, the new 6th was one of the most Democratic white-majority districts in the South.

With most observers believing the 6th was a likely Democratic pickup,[14] Walker announced he would not run for a fourth term.[15]

Manning won the Democratic primary, and in the general election, she defeated Republican nominee Lee Haywood with 62% of the vote. Upon her swearing-in on January 3, 2021,[16] she became the first Democrat to represent this district since 1985, and the first white Democrat to represent a Triad-based district since Steve Neal left office in 1995.

Manning has championed healthcare issues throughout her time in office, in part because she faced barriers with insurance coverage after her daughter was diagnosed with a chronic illness.[17]

With a passion to make a difference and a heart for all communities, Walker was sworn-in January 2015 and immediately became an acclaimed leader on Capitol Hill, fighting to prevent the return of earmarks, cut wasteful spending and bring accountability to government bureaucracy.
