US Senate Candidate Deborah Ross Speaks with WCQS Ahead of Asheville Visit


Democratic US Senate candidate Deborah Ross is locked in a tight battle with Republican incumbent Richard Burr.  The closeness of the race is a surprise to some analysts who predicted Burr would cruise to re-election.  Ross is visiting the Asheville area Tuesday 9/13 at the Enka Library in Candler from 4 to 5.  She spoke with WCQS's Jeremy Loeb Monday by phone on the way to Asheville.  It's the same day her campaign announced if elected Ross plans to hold community roundtables in every region of the state to hear the voices of North Carolina residents.

During a roughly 15 minute conversation, Ross answered questions about the minimum wage, House Bill 2, judicial vacancies, and the amount of SuperPAC money being spent in the race to defeat her.  You can hear the full conversation by clicking the audio above.

WCQS has reached out to the Richard Burr campaign and we hope to bring you an interview with the Senator soon.
