This week, it was face to face intrigue in the U.S. Senate race. Host Donna Martinez takes listeners through highlights of the statewide debate between Democratic incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan and her Republican challenger, North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis. The candidates exchange views and refute claims on issues as wide ranging as education funding, President Obama's policy decisions, and access to contraceptives. The debate was sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters Educational Foundation and moderated by Norah O'Donnell of CBS News. Then we hear from the third candidate in the race, Libertarian Sean Haugh. Martinez gives listeners another opportunity to hear her interview with Haugh. The two talked earlier this summer. Then Martinez provides some of the latest polling data on the Senate race, courtesy of Public Policy Polling. And finally, Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson tells Martinez about the a big endorsement in the race for seats on North Carolina's high court.
