On Thanksgiving weekend, host Donna Martinez revisits favorite interviews and comments from November. Public Policy Polling’s Jim Williams provides Martinez with an update on Sen. Kay Hagan’s polling numbers, which have dropped dramatically in the wake of the Affordable Care Act website problems. Then Martinez talks with Democrat Ken Spaulding, a Durham attorney, about his political aspirations. Spalding has announced he will seek the Democratic nomination for governor in 2016. Next are recent comments from MSNBC’s Chris Matthews about the potential impact on North Carolina of gubernatorial election results in Virginia and New Jersey. Matthews also offers his view of President Obama’s handling of the ObamaCare rollout. That’s followed by an update on John Edwards return to public life, this time as an attorney. Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson tells Martinez about Edwards’ plans. And finally, we revisit Martinez’s recent conversations with two men who’ve announced they’re seeking the Republican nomination for the 6th District seat in the U.S. Congress. The seat is held by Republican Howard Coble, who recently announced he will not seek re-election. Martinez talks with Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger Jr. and High Point businessman Don Webb.
