Two governors on one stage: former Democratic Gov. Jim Hunt praises current Republican Gov. Pat McCrory. You’ll hear the two state CEOs reminisce about working together across the aisle and what’s to come for the state. Their conversation took place before hundreds who attended the annual Emerging Issues Forum in Raleigh, where McCrory went on to discuss in detail his plans for energy, transportation, and support for the manufacturing industry. You’ll hear the governor’s comments. Then the discussion turns to criticism of legislative Republicans by Democrats and their allies. Host Donna Martinez is joined by Rick Martinez of NewsRadio 680 WPTF in Raleigh,, and NCN News to discuss the GOP’s confidence in its power and agenda despite the onslaught of criticism. The two also talk about new state Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller’s potential impact on the public debate, as well as the love fest between Govs. Hunt and McCrory at the Emerging Issues Forum. Next are remarks by President Obama from Tuesday evening’s State of the Union speech, and reaction from North Carolina Republican Congresswoman Virigina Foxx of the 5th District. Foxx tells Donna Martinez she heard nothing new in the speech and lays out the difference in approach between the the two parties.
