Watch the Gubernatorial Debate online

Wondering which gubernatorial candidate to support in this year's primary? Check out the recent debate in Henderson County. There will be another debate right here in Asheville on May 1, so you will have an opportunity to see all the candidates in person and ask any questions that you have.

Here is a message from the Henderson County GOP about their debate with links to the video:
The debate this morning was fantastic with over 300 people in attendance. The partnership of the party and the Men's Club made the work easier and the media folks from the Times-News, Tribune, WHKP, and WLOS all did a very professional job. It was a win for the voters, our party and the candidates.

The Tribune did both "before and after" straw polls, the results of which will be in their issue which comes out tomorrow afternoon and Friday morning at your regular locations or at Mark White's office on White St.

If you didn't make it you can watch it on the Times-News site, where they have broken into question by question sections.

Or if you want it all from start to finish as one piece, here is the WLOS link.

The WLOS link has some glitches and you'll need to nudge the player forward now and then.

New precinct officers and delegates!

We had a nice precinct meeting this morning. 5 Neighbors got together to nominate delegates and alternates and also a Vice Chair and Secretary for our precinct. I think the officer appointments don't become official until the Executive Committee approves them, but I am so thrilled that we have a couple of good Republican neighbors who are willing to fill those roles. Thank you to all of you who attended the meeting this morning. It was great to sit down and get to know each other a little better!

Delegates from our precinct will be able to attend and vote at the District Convention on April 26 and the State Convention June 6-8. Everyone is welcome to attend, even if you are not a voting delegate.

The County Convention was a great opportunity to hear from Republicans running for local, state, and federal offices. Congratulations to Tim Johnson who is now our Buncombe County Chairman and Mark Delk who is our Member-at-Large!
