Who will represent the 2nd District of North Carolina in the next U.S. Congress? Rick Martinez, news director of NewsRadio 680 WPTF,, and the N.C. News Network, joins host Donna Martinez to discuss the likely recount in the Renee Ellmers/Bob Etheridge race, the competition for House Speaker in the N.C. House, and Gov. Perdue's 2012 re-election run.

Then N.C. GOP Chairman Tom Fetzer dissects the big GOP midterm win, the expectation of voters for the new GOP-led General Assembly, his view of RNC Chairman Michael Steele, and Gov. Perdue's re-election prospects.

Then Democratic insider Gary Pearce provides perspective on the road ahead for N.C. Democrats and Gov. Perdue. That's followed by a look at the Instant Runoff count in the race for a seat on the N.C. Court of Appeals with retired Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr. Orr also discusses the stunning vote in Iowa, in which three justices were ousted following their controversial ruling in favor of same-sex marriage.

And finally, Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler tells Gov. Perdue he won't provide the budget cut recommendations she's asked all agency heads to submit. Troxler explains why he's not willing to do it.
