Jim Duncan, Candidate for U.S. Congress, District 2

Jim Duncan was born the son of a South Carolina native and WWII sailor turned police officer. He grew up in modest circumstances and became the first person in his family to graduate from college. Jim decided to follow in his father's footsteps and joined the military, serving in the Army National Guard for five years. 

In business, Jim found his home in the emerging high-tech industry. He spent 30 very successful years building meaningful relationships and solving challenging problems for some of America’s most legendary corporations. He experienced the highs and lows, successes and failures that come with being an entrepreneur.

Jim and his family have dedicated much of their time working with underprivileged inner-city children. These experiences caused Jim to examine his beliefs and look towards conservative principles. It became clear to him that there had to be a better way to lift children out of poverty and profoundly change their circumstances and outcomes. He realized that the best opportunities came from strong conservative principles and has been a Republican ever since. Ultimately, Jim chose to call North Carolina home and quickly got involved in the community and local politics. In 2010, fearful that elected representatives were transforming our country from the land of opportunity to one that is burdened by debt and dominated by an arrogant government, Jim founded the nonpartisan group, Coalition for American Principles.  CAP is dedicated to the principles of less government, fiscal responsibility, a strong military, and protection of individual liberties.  Later that same year, Jim was elected the Chairman of the Chatham County Republican Party. Under his leadership, the organization reached new heights and became a model for county level conservative groups.

Jim is a leader for the Boys & Girls Club of Durham, Board Member of The Jesse Helms Center, and serves on the Chatham County 9/11 Memorial Board. Jim is happily married to Betsy, his wife of 44 years, they have one daughter, Kirsten, and a dog named Reagan.  He recently announced he will run for US Congress, District 2.
