Six weeks from the primary election, we continue our conversations with the men and women who want to oust Republican Sen. Richard Burr from his U.S. Senate seat. Host Donna Martinez talks with Dr. Greg Brannon about his views on issues and why he believes Republicans should give him the party’s nomination. The two discuss fiscal issues, national security, same-sex marriage, and abortion. Then we turn to campaign fundraising numbers as candidates face the deadline to report their cash hauls to the state. Martinez gets the numbers from Rick Henderson of Carolina Journal, who reports on Roy Cooper, Pat McCrory, Richard Burr, and Deborah Ross. That’s followed by the very latest polling data with Tom Jensen from Public Policy Polling. Jensen and Martinez look at the public’s view of the General Assembly and what it could portend for the November election in which Republicans are seeking to maintain their wide majorities in both chambers. Jensen also discusses the presidential race and the upcoming Iowa caucuses, the Trump trend, and why Hillary Clinton has her eyes set squarely on Nevada and South Carolina rather than Iowa and New Hampshire. And finally, Martinez updates the state’s election calendar with a reminder that absentee balloting by mail has begun.
