It’s official. The candidate list is finalized and the matchups for May’s North Carolina primary election are set. Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling joins host Donna Martinez to take the pulse of the state’s electorate on the U.S. Senate race, key congressional races, and the Democrats’ push to regain seats in the state legislature. Jensen also lays out the intriguing fight for control of the U.S. Senate, which could hinge on North Carolina’s seat, now held by Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan. Then we turn to the candidate slate in key races with the weekly “On the Trail” segment. Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson tells Martinez that several GOP incumbents are facing criticism from primary challengers, and the two discuss the very crowded GOP field for the U.S. Senate nomination. That’s followed by an update on the legal troubles for former Republican state legislator Stephen LaRoque. Sarah Ovaska of N.C. Policy Watch tells Martinez that a judge has granted LaRoque a new trial on all 12 counts of misuse of federal grant money.
