It happened. Election day came and went. Some races resulted in big changes or flipped seats. In North Carolina’s 115th District, Rep. John Ager won reelection, but the Republicans will maintain their majority in the State House of Representatives.

In this follow-up interview, Ager speaks with Kat Johnson about where he and the NC Democratic Party go from here. They also discuss how messaging impacted the 2020 campaign in Western North Carolina, the ‘Cannabis Caucus’ and its work on legalizing medical marijuana and deregulating hemp farming, and what can be done to increase access to land and money for new farmers.
