On Saturday, February 6, 206, the Macon County Republican Party hosted a forum for candidates. Headlining the forum was Buck Newton, a Republican candidate for North Carolina Attorney General. Other candidates included NC Senator Jim Davis (running for re-election to the 50th District NC Senate seat), Commissioner Kevin Corbin and Elliott Southworth (both running for the NC House 120th District seat of the retiring Roger West), Karl Gillespie and Ron Haven (both seeking the County Commissioner District II seat that is being vacated by Kevin Corbin), and Commissioner Paul Higdon, Greg Boyer and Manny Carrion (all seeking the County Commissioner District III seat currently held by Paul Higdon). All candidates will face Democratic opposition in the General election this fall.
