Early voting gets underway Thursday, October 23. With a recent poll showing that roughly seven out of 10 North Carolinians undecided on races for the North Carolina Supreme Court, host Donna Martinez revisits judicial candidate comments at the forum she recently moderated for the Triangle chapter of the Federal Society, an attorney group. Seven of the eight candidates for seats on the highest court in the state participated. Martinez begins the forum with a conversation with current Chief Justice Mark Martin, who was recently appointed to the top job. His opponent, Judge Ola Lewis had originally confirmed her participation at the event but cancelled several hours before the forum began. Martin’s comments are followed by Martinez’ discussion with current Justice Bob Hunter and his opponent, Court of Appeals Judge Sam Ervin IV. Then Martinez talks with incumbent Justice Robin Hudson and her challenger, Superior Court Judge Eric Levinson. And finally, the candidates for the fourth seat on the Supreme Court take the stage for a question from Martinez. They are current Justice Cheri Beasley and her challenger, attorney Mike Robinson.
