In this video interview, Xpress reporter Jake Frankel speaks with Republican General Assembly District 115 candidate Mark Crawford about his background, his views on the environment, education and jobs, and how he differs from his Democratic opponent, Rep. Patsy Keever.
The interview with Crawford took place at Magnolias in downtown Asheville as he was finishing up a lunch meeting with other Republican candidates and state leaders.
Earlier this week, Xpress interviewed Rep. Keever just after she was sworn in at the Buncombe County Courthouse. Keever was appointed by Gov. Beverly Perdue to fill the Buncombe seat vacated by Bruce Goforth after Keever beat him in the May primary.
