Primary Election Day is just around  the corner and thousands of North Carolinians have already taken advantage of early voting. This week, host Donna Martinez talks with two Republicans engaged in a heated fight for the GOP nomination for the 7th District seat in Congress -- the seat being vacated by Democrat Mike McIntyre. Former Johnston County state Sen. David Rouzer and New Hanover County Commissioner Woody White have been locked in a verbal and advertising battle over which man would better represent the district, which leans Republican despite McIntyre's long representation. Martinez talks with Rouzer about his strategy of calling out White for being a trial attorney, and she talks with White about his claim that Rouzer represents the Washington establishment that has failed to represent Republican values. Martinez talks with the third Republican in the race last week, Chris Andrade. Then we turn to the race that some folks don't even realize is on the primary ballot: the race for a seat on the North Carolina Supreme Court. This week Martinez revisits her conversations with all three candidates: Justice Robin Hudson, attorney Jeanette Doran, and Judge Eric Levinson. All three talk about their background and why they want to sit on the state's highest court. Voters can choose only one candidate on May 6, but the top two vote-getters will advance to the general election in the fall. Hudson, a Democrat, is the incumbent in the nonpartisan race. Doran and Levinson are Republicans.
