He could be the spoiler candidate the prevents Democrat Kay Hagan from being re-elected to the U.S. Senate or Republican Thom Tillis from snatching the seat for Republicans. Host Donna Martinez talks with the third person on the fall Senate ballot -- Libertarian Sean Haugh. The two talk about domestic policy, the crisis in Iraq, and why Haugh believes "war" is the first thing he would cut from the federal budget. Then we turn to the battle underway in the 6th Congressional district as the GOP primary runoff nears. Rick Henderson of Carolina Journal tells Martinez about the fierce competition and interesting political dynamics at play between Phil Berger Jr. and Mark Walker -- the two men vying for the win on July 15. Then we turn to fireworks that went off this week for two state legislators. Henderson tells Martinez about eyebrow-raising comments made by Republican Rep. Paul Stam of Raleigh about the definition of sexual orientation. He also explains eyebrow raising news about high ranking Democratic legislator Michael Wray of Gaston, who up until very recently had failed to pay numerous tax bills. And finally, with early voting for the GOP's 6th District congressional runoff getting underway July 3, we take another look at the two candidates. Martinez recently talked with Phil Berger Jr. and Mark Walker. You'll hear parts of those conversations.
