It’s finally over. This week Democratic incumbent Congressman Mike McIntyre prevailed in a recount of the 7th district congressional race, beating his Republican challenger, state Sen. David Rouzer, by 654 votes. Host Donna Martinez is joined by Rick Martinez of NCN News,, and NewsRadio 680 WPTF to discuss the results, as well as Rep. Heath Shuler’s unexpected foray into lobbying, U.S. Kay Hagan’s confirmation that will seek re-election in 2014 and the Republicans who may challenge her. Martinez also provides an update on the investigation into a terrible car crash involving Forsyth County legislator Larry Womble, and the war of words between Gov. Perdue and state Sen. Leader Phil Berger over seating a successor to Supreme Court Justice Patricia Timmons-Goodson, who announced she will resign from office. Then Donna Martinez provides details plans for Gov.-Elect McCrory’s inauguration and public open houses, while Lt. Gov.-Elect Dan Forest talks about what’s ahead for him with Bill LuMaye of NewsRadio 680 WPTF in Raleigh. That’s followed by a conversation between’s Barlow Herget and N.C. House Majority Leader Paul Stam of Wake County. The two discuss the GOP’s legislative priorities and plans for Republicans to choose legislative leaders. And finally, we hear from two former North Carolina governors – Republican Jim Holshouser and Democrat Jim Hunt – who have joined together to advocate for solutions to the nation’s so-called fiscal cliff scenario, and the growing $16-plus trillion in debt.
