Candidates for North Carolina 50th District State Senate district incumbent Sen. Jim Davis, R-Franklin, and former Democratic State Sen. John Snow of Murphy were guests at the August meeting of the Macon County League of Women Voters (LWV).
LWV, a non-partisan group, has become known for holding candidate forums around election time to give voters the opportunity to meet with candidates and learn their stance on pressing issues facing the upcoming election. This November will mark the second time in N.C. political history these two candidates have been on the ballot together. Snow held the seat for six years until Davis unseated him in 2010 by less than 200 votes.
Susan Ervin moderated the forum and began by asking candidates what issues they felt were most important going into the November election.
