North Carolina's 2nd congressional district is located in the central and eastern parts of the state. Today, the district, which is represented by Congressman Bob Etheridge, includes all or parts of Chatham, Cumberland, Franklin, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Nash, Sampson, Vance, and Wake counties.

In the nineteenth century, the district was known as "The Black Second," because it elected all four of North Carolina's Republican African-American congressmen from that era (ending with George H. White). [1] [2]
