Debate Elisabeth Motsinger at Wake Forest and Appalachian, too!

Dear Representative Foxx:

The voters in the anchor population centers North Carolina's 5th Congressional District need a chance to compare your positions as the district's four term incumbent with those of your challenger, Elisabeth Motsinger, so that we can make informed decisions about who we want to represent us in Washington.

Appalachian State University in Boone, Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, and Salem College and Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem have all invited the 5th district candidates to debates on their campuses. Elisabeth Motsinger has accepted those invitations; but you have only accepted the Lenoir-Rhyne invitation. Just a small part of Hickory and Catawba County is in the 5th District, and that starting just this year.

Voters should not have to travel from Winston-Salem or West Jefferson to Hickory.  Come where most of the voters will find convenient--Winston-Salem and Boone.

Mrs. Foxx, we want you to debate Elisabeth Motsinger nearby. For the good of the students. For the good of the voters. For the good of the 5th district.
