U.S. Rep. Alma Adams, a Charlotte Democrat, joined the Observer Wednesday for a Facebook Live, where she’ll answered questions from the public and a reporter Jim Morrill.

Watch it on the Observer’s Facebook page.

The Observer held a Facebook Live with U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Charlotte Republican, in May.

Adams won re-election in November to her second term representing the 12th congressional district.

Adams was deeply affected by last year’s remap of her district, which had been assailed as the most gerrymandered in America. It formed a thin, winding ribbon along I-85 from Charlotte to her hometown of Greensboro, with a heavy population of African-American voters. The new map puts the bulk of her district within Charlotte’s city limits.
