Last Saturday, the Macon County Republican Party held their annual Convention at the Macon County Community Facilities Building in Franklin. Many Macon County notables were in attendance as well as guest speaker, United States Congressman Mark Meadows who represents the 11th District of North Carolina.
Before the guest speaker took to the podium, N.C. Senator Jim Davis (R-50) gave an energized update of what the North Carolina General Assembly has been working to accomplish in the new session. The first update he touched on was the state's rejection of the Medicaid expansion that accompanied “Obamacare” or the Affordable Healthcare Act which was greeted with applause.
