The word “Republican” shows up at least once on Chuck Stuber’s campaign website, in a note announcing his candidacy last February. But since then? Not so much.
But there was a bigger issue for many Forum participants: Some seemed to have no clue that North Carolina elected a state auditor. The name of Democratic incumbent Beth Wood was not on the tips of their tongues.
Stuber explained during the Q&A that he would be steering clear of offering answers to questions when a full answer might compromis his independence and impartiality, should he be elected Nov. 8. He stuck mostly to explaining his career work at the FBI, and some investigatory work for the N.C. Board of Elections.
But he offered this answer on whether there was any voter fraud in North Carolina: The truth, he said, lies between those who think fraud is rampant, and those who insist that there is none.
The video below of the livestreamed Forum session includes Stuber’s presentation and Q&A, but then continues with a discussion with candidates for Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor, and a presentation by Bea Thompson, a spokesperson for a mental health nonprofit.
Stuber’s presentation begins at minute 12:30. The Q&A involving Stuber runs from minute 18:16 through minute 48:40. After his part of the Forum, Stuber remained in the room, and was still at the Belmont Center talking to voters 20 minutes after the Forum closed.
