A North Carolina icon passes away. Host Donna Martinez is joined by John Hood of the John Locke Foundation for perspective on the political legacy and impact of Dr. William Friday, the former head of the UNC System who died at age 92. Hood discusses Friday's role in the 1963 speaker ban uproar with the General Assembly and his impact on progressive politics in North Carolina. Then we hear comments from Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at his Asheville rally that drew 8,000 people. That's followed by comments from Democratic Congressman David Price, who counters that President Obama is the candidate who really supports the veterans. Next are profiles of the six candidates for three seats on the North Carolina Court of Appeals. They introduce themselves at a judicial forum sponsored by the Federalist Society and moderated by Martinez. Then Rick Martinez joins the show to discuss Romney's bump in the polls as well as news that Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton has cut his Charlotte TV ad buy, leading to speculation about the state of his campaign coffers heading into the final stretch of the race. Next are excerpts of the week's vice presidential debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan. They debate jobs and the economy. And finally, Rick Martinez analyzes the Biden and Ryan performances.
