Judge Ann Marie Calabria joins host Donna Martinez to discuss her campaign for re-election to the North Carolina Court of Appeals. Calabria faces Wake County District Court Judge Jane Gray in November.

Then Martinez and guests Damon Circosta of the North Carolina Center for Voter Education and Dallas Woodhouse of Americans for Prosperity react to the latest sparring between Senate candidates Richard Burr and Elaine Marshall over Burr's first general election ad. Burr positions himself as a down-home North Carolinian in the ad, and Marshall says that characterization is a fairytale. Circosta and Woodhouse also analyze Rep. Heath Shuler's re-election bid against Republican challenger Jeff Miller in the 11th District, Republican Renee Ellmers' run against Democratic incumbent Bob Etheridge in the 2nd District, and Sarah Palin's endorsement of Ellmers, and the race between Democrat Mike McIntyre and Republican Ilario Pantano in the 7th District. That's followed by a debate between Circosta and Woodhouse over whether North Carolina candidates should be funded by taxpayer dollars and the $30,000 fine imposed by the state Board of Elections on the Beverly Perdue campaign.

Then the subject turns to a judge's exoneration of former lottery commissioner Kevin Geddings and the news about state Sen. R.C. Soles' run-in with a young man who's been in the news before. Rick Henderson of Carolina Journal provides Martinez with the developments.
