Candidate Forum: NC's 7th Congressional District; 2 of 3 Candidates to Participate

Two of three candidates for North Carolina's 7th Congressional District: Jonathan Barfield (left; D-New Hanover), Wesley Casteen (right; L-New Hanover)

Tune in to HQR News 91.3 FM Monday, October 13th at 7 PM (or stream the video live on WWAYTV3.com) to hear from Democrat Jonathan Barfield and Libertarian Wesley Casteen on why they think they should represent North Carolina's 7th District on Capitol Hill.

Republican David Rouzer has chosen not to participate citing two other events in October.  

In spite of that, WHQR has chosen to go forward with the forum as it is not our role to base our coverage on likely outcomes.  We believe that a critical part of our mission is to facilitate engagement in the democratic process as thoroughly as we are able.   

Email your questions to COASTLINE@WHQR.ORG:

  • Questions must be in the form of a question.  No statements allowed.
  • Questions must be applicable to both candidates.
  • Questions must fit within a 30-second time limit

Join us Monday, October 13th at 7 PM in the MC Erny Gallery and be part of our live studio audience!

Doors close at 6:55, and 7 PM is a hard live start time, so stragglers could get locked out.  Arrive early to ensure you have a seat.
