North Carolina's 2nd Congressional District, currently held by Republican George Holding, is one of the major races to watch this year - it's been identified as a "swing district" - one we've got a decent chance of turning over to a Democrat! But in order to win, we've got to have the right Candidate on our ballot in the fall.
The stakes are incredibly high - this race is for the United States Congress, so while elected to represent us, the bills our Representative supports will have nationwide implications on critical topics such as Social Security, Medicare, Gun control, Voting Rights, Justice Reform, etc.
On Primary Election day (May 8), residents of this critical district will vote for one of three Democratic Candidates vying for this seat.
Our candidates are Linda Coleman, Wendy May, and Ken Romley.
This Forum is your opportunity to get to know these candidates - they'll all be joining us, ready to answer prepared questions as well as questions from attendees. Remember - your elected officials represent you - so make sure you know which candidates support the positions that are most important to you!
Bring your thoughts and questions. Time will be limited, so we cannot guarantee that all questions will be answered during this Forum. However, all three Candidates will be happy to answer your questions individually if we run out of time.
For information on all the candidates running to represent Johnston County, and for a list of all our upcoming events, remember to visit our website at http://www.jcdp.org.
We'll see you there!
