US Representative David Price (4th US Congressional District) paid a visit to the "Tarheel Cluster" of dog shows at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds on Friday, March 19th. The visit, hosted in conjunction with the Durham Kennel Club, provided an opportunity for the Congressman to learn more about the sport of purebred dogs and the economic impact of dog shows. Rep. Price was greeted by AKC Chief Operating Officer John Lyons and met with many of his constituent fanciers, including several local Junior Showmanship participants.

AKC was pleased to welcome Congressman Price as part of our efforts to represent the interests of the fancy at the federal level. Fostering a good relationship with the Congressman will help ensure that AKC's concerns are heard on Capitol Hill.
