In the beginning of the new year, the 117th Congress will be sworn in and North Carolina will welcome three new representatives to its delegation. Congresswoman-elect Kathy Manning will be among them, representing the state’s 6th District that encompasses most of the Triad. She'll be the first woman to represent that district and North Carolina's first Jewish congresswoman.

In this episode, host Jeff Tiberii talks with Manning about her priorities as a representative, campaigning during a pandemic, and why a medical bill sparked her career in politics.
