The race for North Carolina’s 6th District seat in Congress is getting crowded. Rockingham County District Attorney tells host Donna Martinez he will seek the GOP nomination for the seat current Rep. Howard Coble will vacate at the end of his term, and he discusses his views on fiscal and social issues. Then we turn to the re-emergence of John Edwards. Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson tells Martinez about Edwards’ decision to get back into lawyering and what his daughter Cate says about any potential political future for her father. Martinez and Henderson also discuss the continuing political comments coming from Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, who appears to be setting the stage for a gubernatorial run, and legal problems for the High Point mayor. Next is a look at the plummeting approval numbers for President Obama. CBS’s John Dickerson digs into the data and what it could mean for the president. That’s followed by comments from 4th District Democratic Rep. David Price about issues with health insurance cancellations due to Affordable Care Act rules. Then you’ll hear the dueling ads already on the air in the race for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Kay Hagan. The Senate Majority PAC is airing a pro-Hagan ad, while Americans for Prosperity has produced an ad that questions Hagan’s votes. Next is Martinez’s conversation with Chad Adams, former Lee County Commissioner and Wilmington talk show host. Adams offers his view of the 2014 election cycle. And finally, we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. You’ll hear the president talks with WGN sportscaster Vince Lloyd on opening day of the baseball season in April 1961. Martinez also reports on survey data about Americans’ views of JFK.
