The vote is in – and so is Thom Tillis. The Republican defeated Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan Tuesday night in a race that helped Republicans secure control of the U.S. Senate. You’ll hear the Sen. Elect’s comments on the campaign and his priorities. Then host Donna Martinez gets perspective on what the Tillis win means to North Carolina politics, as well as the national political landscape, from former White House Political Director Jonathan Felts. He draws on his experience in the George W. Bush administration to assess how the Democratic administration should react to the massive shift in power on  Capitol Hill, and what Tillis should do as he prepares for a new job. Then Martinez discusses the results of Congressional and Legislative races with Rick Henderson, managing editor of Carolina Journal. They discuss what the future could hold for losing Democratic candidates Clay Aiken and Laura Fjeld as the state’s Democratic Party seeks to rebuild.
