Great precinct 15 showing at 11th District Convention

Buncombe County had a great turnout today at the 11th District Republican Convention with 43 delegates, more than any other county. I don't know this for a fact, but I'd be willing to bet that our Asheville precinct 15 had a better turnout than any other precinct with 5 good Republican neighbors attending. Thank you so much for your participation!!!

Meet the candidates!

We have several opportunities to meet candidates this month, and I hope you all will take advantage of them. The primary IS important! The presidential primary is not the only reason to vote! We have contested Republican primaries for many offices, including Governor, Lt. Governor, U.S. Senate, 11th District Congressional seat, County Commissioners, and probably others that I am forgetting.

Let's all be INFORMED voters!

You can always visit the North Carolina GOP website to learn more about your choices.

I have been informed of 3 events for April (I'm sure there are plenty of others) where you can meet and learn about some of the Republican candidates. These are all listed on the Asheville 15 calendar for your convenience.
