Should Hillary Clinton be concerned about Bernie Sanders? Just days ago, the Vermont senator and self-described socialist brought his message of income inequality and more government support to Greensboro to a standing-room-only crowd of more than 5,000 at the Greensboro Coliseum. You’ll hear some of his comments. Then host Donna Martinez talks with Democratic political consultant Thomas Mills about the Sanders phenomenon, and why he believes Sanders’ popularity has similarities to the popularity of Donald Trump with Republicans. Mills also has some candid advice for the Clinton campaign. Then we turn to the politics of the state budget – who won and who lost the political fight over funding and programs. Martinez gets perspective from Rick Henderson of Carolina Journal on what it could mean to the 2016 election cycle for both Republicans and Democrats. And finally, it was a huge week for Republican presidential candidates, all of whom have their eyes on North Carolina. In particular, Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump, and Marco Rubio made an impact. You’ll hear some of the exchanges that occurred between the candidates who debated before a massive viewership of nearly 23 million on CNN.
