Nearly 100 people turned up at UNCA’s Reuter Center April 21 to hear five Republicans and one Democrat explain how they would represent North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District if voters sent them to Washington in November. Candidates Dan Eichenbaum, Ed Krause, Jeff Miller, Greg Newman, Kenny West and Aixa Wilson all attended. Only Republican Jake Howard and Democratic incumbent Heath Shuler were not on hand.
Topics addressed by the six questions taken from the audience during nearly an hour-and-a-half discussion included Wall Street bailouts, illegal immigration, federal school-lunch policy and Social Security reform.
Here’s a video of the forum:
