We’re getting a look at Gov. Pat McCrory’s communication style. This week as he prepared to release his first proposed operating budget, McCrory’s office released a video package that resembled a campaign commercial. Host Donna Martinez talks about the video, as well as the governor’s travels across the state, Rick Martinez of NCN News,, and NewsRadio 680 WPTF in Raleigh. The two also discuss the media portrayal of the voter I.D. issue as controversial, despite consistent polling that shows the vast majority of North Carolinians support it, and former Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton’s new job in higher education. Then Bob Phillips of the progressive advocacy group Common Cause weighs in on efforts by legislative Republicans to move forward with requiring identification to vote in North Carolina. Next is a look at a potential contender for the 2016 presidential race. CBS looks into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s public statement that she now supports same-sex marriage, leading to questions that the Democrat may be planning a 2016 run. That’s followed by a look at the final spending numbers for North Carolina’s 2012 congressional races. Jonathan Kappler of the North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation delves into the numbers, and tells us who is amassing a war chest today. And finally, we look at how Gov. McCrory and legislative Republicans are faring with the public in the latest Elon University Poll. Kenneth Fernandez analyzes the results with Donna Martinez.
