Congressmen Larry Kissell and Heath Shuler have been identified by a Washington DC political newspaper as among the most vulnerable incumbents in the 2012 election. North Carolina’s Evening News Host Mike Davis and North Carolina News Network News Director Rick Martinez join host Donna Martinez to analyze the precarious re-election prospects for the two members, the discontent among some Tea Party movement members with Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers, and stories about a change in John Edwards’ legal team and discontent among some unions about the choice of Charlotte as the site for the Democratic National Convention. Then Republican Bill Randall talks about his intent to seek the GOP nomination for the 13th district of Congress, while State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett discusses the impact of new election maps on his department’s operations. That’s followed by comments from State Treasurer Janet Cowell about the recession’s impact on state investments and her view of when the state will see signs of recovery. Finally, Martinez provides updates on a personnel change at the state Democratic Party, former President Bill Clinton’s health, and an indictment of two men for harassing former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
