CongressionalCandidates at Tea Party meeting
Tuesday, April 17 at the Blue Bay Seafood Restaurant, 2050 Statesville Blvd., the Rowan Tea Party Patriots host Congressional candidates running in the 5th, 8th, and 12th Districts. Dinner is at 6 for those interested, and the meeting begins at 7 p.m.
All candidates have been invited. In the 5th District, Democrat Bruce Peller plans to attend. The GOP incumbent Virginia Foxx in the 5th is unchallenged in the primary.
In the 8th District, Richard Hudson, Scott Keadle, Vernon Robinson and John Whitley have all confirmed. Fred Steen has a scheduling conflict and is unable to attend. Democrat Marcus Williams from Lumberton may not be able to attend due to the distance conflicting with work.
In the 12th District, Republican Jack Brosch will attend, and Matt Newton, Democrat challenging Mel Watt, is planning to attend.
This is an opportunity for voters to meet and hear the candidates.
