Wesley Casteen


On this edition of CoastLine Candidate Interviews, we meet J. Wesley Casteen, a Democrat who is challenging Republican Congressman David Rouzer for the seat in North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District.  The district stretches from the southeastern coast of North Carolina (encompassing Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender Counties) to the west, with more rural counties such as Columbus, Sampson, Wayne, and Duplin.  The district also includes portions of Johnston and Bladen County.  70% of voters in the 7th district are white, 21% are black and 9% identify as Hispanic. 

This candidate forum featuring two of three candidates for North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District aired live October 13, 2014.  

Tune in to HQR News 91.3 FM Monday, October 13th at 7 PM (or stream the video live on WWAYTV3.com) to hear from Democrat Jonathan Barfield and Libertarian Wesley Casteen on why they think they should represent North Carolina's 7th District on Capitol Hill.

Republican David Rouzer has chosen not to participate citing two other events in October.  


Wesley Casteen grew up in nearby Duplin County and now lives in New Hanover.
