After Hudson, Budd Send Letter, Team Invited to White House
 
SALISBURY, N.C. – Today U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after the Rowan County Little League Softball team received an invitation to visit the White House for winning the 2019 Little League Softball World Series title:
 
“I want to thank President Trump for inviting our Rowan County Little League Softball team to the White House for this incredible honor,” said Rep. Hudson. “These young ladies are world champions and deserve a national celebration.”
 
Rep. Hudson and Rep. Ted Budd (NC-13), whose districts include Rowan County, sent President Donald Trump a letter yesterday asking him to invite the Rowan County Little League Softball team to the White House. The text of the letter is below.
 
President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20500
 
 
Dear Mr. President,
 
We write today to ask you to invite the 2019 Little League Softball World Series Champions from North Carolina to a celebration at the White House. It is our understanding that you have invited the 2019 Little League Baseball World Series Champions from Louisiana to the White House, and we hope to see our Rowan County Little League softball team receive the same warm welcome.
 
As the representatives of Rowan County, North Carolina, we were proud to support and watch our team win their second World Series championship in the last four years on August 14th in Portland, Oregon. These young women worked incredibly hard and defeated Eastbank Little League from Louisiana to capture this year’s Little League Softball World Series title.
 
We believe that as world champions, these Rowan County all-stars deserve to be properly celebrated at the White House.  
 
Sincerely,
 
Richard Hudson (NC-08)
Ted Budd (NC-13)
