Statement from the President on the Retirement of Congressman Mike McIntyre

In his seventeen years representing the people of North Carolina in the U.S. Congress, Mike McIntyre has been a strong advocate for our men and women in uniform and a key voice on issues that shape the lives of Americans in rural communities.  He’s also been an active participant in the annual National Prayer Breakfast – a reflection of his deep faith.  Michelle and I thank Congressman McIntyre for his service, and we wish him, his wife Dee and their two sons the very best in the future.
