The Young Americans for Liberty chapter at the University of North Carolina – Asheville sponsored a multi-partisan U.S. Senate candidate forum Sunday. All 13 candidates were invited. Democrat Ernest T. Reeves, Republican Alex Bradshaw, and Libertarians Tim D'Annunzio and Sean Haugh participated in the forum.
Adding a plank supporting an independent, non-partisan redistricting process was one of the changes made to the LPNC platform at the 2014 state convention.
The new plank reads:
Voters should choose their legislators, not the other way around. We support a redistricting process conducted by an independent, non-partisan agency for all local, state, and federal electoral districts. The process should be open and transparent. It should involve significant public input with the opportunity for citizens to weigh in on proposed district maps.
Party registration, voting history data, and the incumbent’s place of residence should not be used to create the districts.Read more
