Bill Randall joins host Donna Martinez to discuss his runoff win over Bernie Reeves, which gave him the Republican nomination for District 13 in the U.S. Congress. Randall describes what's ahead in the next four months as he seeks to unseat Democratic incumbent Brad Miller in November.

Then Chris Fitzsimon of N.C. Policy Watch and Becki Gray of the John Locke Foundation offer perspective on Democrat Elaine Marshall's decisive runoff win over Cal Cunningham and Marshall's desire to knock off Republican Richard Burr in a race that national Democrats have their eyes on. The two also discuss results of the Republican congressional runoffs and spar over this week's key political developments, including new N.C. Sen. Majority Leader Martin Nesbitt's failed attempt to expand publicly funded election campaigns, the role of 2008 Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory in helping scuttle Nesbitt's effort, NC GOP Chairman Tom Fetzer's continued pressure on the State Board of Elections to investigate Gov. Perdue's campaign finances, the role of Democratic powerhouse Organizing for America in this fall's North Carolina elections, and criticism of President Obama for his frequent golf outings during the Gulf of Mexico oil spill crisis.
