“In Focus with Loretta Boniti” is hosting our Congressional Conversations series with the Republican and Democratic nominees in several districts where we will see a new member of Congress elected after November. In Focus is an hour long each week, so that Loretta can spend a half-hour getting to know and talking topics with these candidates.

She travels to each district to talk to the candidates in the area where they could be representing their constituents. These Congressional Conversations are done in partnership with the N.C. Institute for Political Leadership.

In Focus this week heads to Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College in District 11. For the first half-hour, Loretta talks with Buncombe County Commissioner Jasmine Beach-Ferrara and then follows with a conversation with state Sen. and Republican nominee Chuck Edwards.
