The NCDP Third Congressional District will host a Candidates Forum on Tuesday April 9th. The Forum will be held in the main Auditorium (building 8) at Beaufort Community College starting at 6:00 pm. As of this writing, 5 of the 6 Democrats have agreed to participate. We hope to confirm all six shortly. Knowing there are several local forums in some of our larger central counties we wanted to make a special effort to here from smaller and more remote counties. With that in mind, the bulk of our questions for the forum will come from you, the Democrats in the 3rd District (with preference from smaller counties). Please click on the link below to submit your questions. The cut off will be 5:00 pm on Monday April 8th.

While this will be your last chance to hear from the candidates before Early Voting begins on April 10th, there are two other Democratic Forums scheduled in the District by local Parties. One is in New Bern on April 8th and the other Greenville on April 15th.

Greenville, NC – After faithfully representing the people of Eastern North Carolina in Congress and the state legislature for over 34 years, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) passed away this afternoon in Greenville, North Carolina. He was 76.
Congressman Jones was a man of the people. With a kind heart and the courage of his convictions, he dedicated his life to serving his Savior and to standing up for Americans who needed a voice. He was a champion for our men and women in uniform and their families, always mindful of their service and sacrifice.
Congressman Jones will long be remembered for his honesty, faith and integrity. He was never afraid to take a principled stand. He was known for his independence, and widely admired across the political spectrum. Some may not have agreed with him, but all recognized that he did what he thought was right.
