Connect to Congress: Rep. Mark Meadows

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Meadows, (R) 11th District, is speaking out about the Department of Justice lawsuit against North Carolina's passage of House Bill 2, the so-called Bathroom Bill.

In a Connect to Congress interview with WLOS in Asheville, the congressman talked about a letter that Republican members of congress in North Carolina sent to the Secretary of Education. The letter outlines their concerns about the government cutting federal funding to North Carolina schools.

Congressman Meadows also weighed in on the 2016 presidential race, and explains why he will support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee.

He also talks about the idea of changing the primary election system and the way voters select a presidential nominee.

WLOS also asks Congressman Meadows about federal legislation that would mandate state schools to get tested for lead in the wake of the Flint, Michigan water crisis.

Congressman Meadows also talks about the length of the special congressional investigation into the Benghazi attacks, which is now the longest special congressional investigation in U.S. history.
