Best C-SPAN political moment ever?! North Carolina political strategists and brothers Dallas and Brad Woodhouse make national news with their C-SPAN appearance this week, featuring a phone call from their mother Joyce in Raleigh, who gives the boys a ‘talking to’ and gives the viewers a belly laugh. Host Donna Martinez talks with Dallas and his mom about the moment that is now enshrined in political history – with more than 1 million hits to the You Tube video clip within just days. They talk about the incident itself and what it has been like raising two men who find themselves at professional odds and under the microscope: Dallas the conservative activist versus Brad the Democratic political consultant. Then we turn to the war of words between Gov. Pat McCrory and the Associated Press over an AP story about the governor’s stock payout from a financial services board he sat on. The AP questioned the ethics of the payout, with the governor pushing back that the story was riddled with errors and mischaracterizations. That’s followed by Martinez’ interview with NC State political science professor Andy Taylor. The two discuss Sen. Elect Thom Tillis’ two key committee assignments, his role as part of the new Republican Senate majority, and the 2016 Senate and gubernatorial races.
