{{Congintro2014 |Filing deadline=February 28, 2014 |Primary date=May 6, 2014 |Primary=North Carolina has a mixed primary system, in which parties decide who may vote, and they open the primary election to unaffiliated voters. They may choose which ballot they want to vote on without affecting their unaffiliated status.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[4] Walter Jones voted in favor of the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[5]

Voted "No" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[6] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Walter Jones voted against HR 2775.[7]
