As a service to North Carolina voters, the NC Family Policy Council has surveyed all candidates running in the Special Election to replace former Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. in the state’s 3rd Congressional District. The candidates’ responses are now available on NC Family’s U.S. House District 3 Voter Guide Page. This Eastern North Carolina district seat became vacant after Congressman Jones passed away in February, and a full slate of 26 candidates filed to run to replace him.
NC Family’s Candidate Questionnaire surveyed the candidates on questions relating to abortion and life issues, religious liberty, gambling, marijuana legalization, and tax policy. The candidates’ responses are now available on the U.S. House District 3 Voter Guide Page, where you can also view a scanned version of their completed questionnaires and read any additional comments or explanations they provided. NC Family reached out to each candidate multiple times by mail, phone and email (when available) to encourage their participation in the 2019 Voter Guide, and we received responses from 16 of the 26 candidates in this race.
