This week Gov. Beverly Perdue got political circles talking when, at a fundraiser for a group supporting Hillary Clinton for president, the former governor told the audience her husband, Bob Eaves, had attended one of the Moral Monday anti-GOP protests at the legislature. Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson tells host Donna Martinez about the story and the developing makeup of the Moral Monday gatherings. The two also discuss the situation with the campaign of Democrat Clay Aiken, the 2nd District congressional nominee who faces Republican Renee Ellmers in the fall. Aiken is reportedly advertising for campaign staff on a progressive blog and, when it comes to fundraising, is prepared to sing for donors. Then we turn to the aggressive advertising already underway in the U.S. Senate race between Kay Hagan, Thom Tillis, and Sean Haugh. People in Politics Special Correspondent Bruce Ferrell gets perspective from William Peace University political science professor David McLennan. That's followed by a discussion with Josh Brannon, one of two Democrats vying in the July runoff for their party's nomination for the 5th District seat in Congress. Martinez talks with Brannon about his ideology and his views on key issues. And finally, Martinez talks with Alex Johnson of General Opportunity about the role of young people on politics and why some 20-somethings are so concerned about economic issues.
