Did a North Carolina state senator use his campaign funds for personal living expenses? The State Board of Elections has referred the case of Republican Sen. Fletcher Hartsell to prosecutors for investigation. Host Donna Martinez gets the details of the election board’s report from Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson, who also discusses the complex nature of campaign finance law. Then the two delve into comments from new Republican Party Chairman Hasan Harnett about his next steps and working relationship with GOP establishment officials, as well the announcement by former U.S. Senate candidate Heather Grant that she will seek the GOP nomination for Insurance Commissioner. Next is a look at the political dynamics of Sen. Richard Burr’s re-election bid and the ramped up North Carolina campaign structure of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Then Martinez talks with Elon University Poll Director Kenneth Fernandez, who offers perspective on the views North Carolinians express about the U.S. Supreme Court and key issues and cases that are pending before the high court and which are the subject of much political debate.
