U.S. Senator Richard Burr wants another term in Washington, but which Democrat will he face for re-election? Host Donna Martinez gets details on a new polling matchup between Burr and former Congressman Mike McIntyre from Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson. The two also discuss which high-profile Democrats have passed on the Senate race and what the Washington pundits have to say about Burr’s chances in 2016, as well as word from state Auditor Beth Wood that she will seek another term as the state’s chief auditor. Martinez also provides an update on the state Republican convention lineup and approval ratings for the president recently released by Elon University. That’s followed by a discussion with former White House political director Jonathan Felts, who’s now a partner in the Raleigh public affairs firm The Results Company. Felts and Martinez discuss the growing slate of GOP presidential candidates, North Carolina’s influence on the 2016 cycle, and why Democrat Hillary Clinton is getting a challenge from her party’s Leftist flank.
