This week the U.S Supreme Court ordered the North Carolina Supreme Court to revisit the Republican drawn election districts. Host Donna Martinez talks with Carolina Journal's Rick Henderson, who explains why the state must look closely at a high court ruling related to Alabama. Henderson also describes reaction from both the Republicans who drew the districts and the Democrats who oppose them. Then the two discuss news that Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of the 2nd district has drawn a second primary challenger. Henderson discusses the discontent felt by some of Ellmers' constituents within her own party. Then Martinez talks with the latest challenger, Frank Roche, about his second run at Ellmers' seat. Former Chatham County GOP Chairman Jim Duncan is also in the race. Next is Martinez' conversation with conservative activist Dallas Woodhouse, who has tickets to the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington D.C. He is a guest of C-SPAN along with his Democratic strategist brother and mother Joyce. And finally, Martinez talks about the presidential race with Kansas Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer who was in North Carolina and attended a speech by GOP candidate Sen. Ted Cruz.
