They’re back. Anti-Republican protesters descend on the General Assembly for another round of protests against policies they say are wrong-headed, even “sinful.” You’ll hear remarks made at a news conference by Rev. William Barber, head of the N.C. NAACP, who leads the protest movement along with other progressive activists. Then host Donna Martinez gets reaction to the reverend’s comments from Rick Henderson of Carolina Journal. The two also discuss the latest Elon University poll results for the General Assembly and the hypothetical gubernatorial matchup between Gov. Pat McCrory and Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper.  Henderson also reacts to a Howard Stern interview with Democrat Clay Aiken, who hurled vulgarities at the Republican congresswoman who defeated him in 2014, Rep. Renee Ellmers. Aiken was promoting his reality series “The Runner Up,” which chronicles his failed bid for the 2nd District seat in the U.S. Congress. That’s followed by Martinez’ conversation with Dallas Woodhouse, a North Carolina conservative activist who was a guest of C-SPAN over the weekend at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in the nation’s capital. Woodhouse talks about the ambience of the event, which is the hottest political ticket in town each year. He also discusses the 2016 presidential and gubernatorial races.
