The Republican National Committee has opened a Charlotte office to engage African-Americans in North Carolina. One of those in attendance at the opening was Salisbury physician Dr. Ada Fisher, North Carolina’s National Committee woman and the only black female elected by the GOP executive committee. Host Donna Martinez talks with Dr. Fisher about the challenge Republicans face in the effort, her beliefs as a Republican, how other African Americans react to her politics, and why she is engaged in an effort to educate Tar Heels about the history of African Americans and the Republican Party. Then we turn to the four lawsuits that have been filed against North Carolina’s election law reforms. Jeanette Doran of the North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law tells Martinez why her group has created a special website to analyze the case documents and the legal issues involved. That’s followed by a look at the latest survey data from Public Policy Polling. Tom Jensen talks about North Carolinians’ views of the Republican majority in the legislature and the declining approval rating for the president in the wake of the failed rollout of the Affordable Care Act. And finally, Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard tells Martinez about new data that shows, despite claims to the contrary, Gov. Sarah Palin helped John McCain in his 2008 run for president.
