Darren Jackson wants to be the next Speaker of the North Carolina House.

Jackson (D-Wake) is currently the Democratic leader in House. He says if Democrats can take back the chamber he will insist on redistricting reform at the General Assembly.

In a wide ranging conversation, Jackson discusses candidate filing for the 2020 elections, which began Monday. And he addresses a friendship with David Lewis (R-Harnett) that soured after a controversial budget-override vote on September 11th.
