Democratic state Rep. Jim Crawford (D-Granville/Vance) joins host Donna Martinez to discuss his decision to join with legislative Republicans and vote to override Gov. Beverly Perdue’s budget veto. Crawford talks about constituent reaction, the potential political implications of his vote, and his future legislative priorities particularly as they relate to job creation in rural North Carolina counties. Then Senate President Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) assesses the GOP’s legislative efforts on the budget and other issues. That’s followed by comments from former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory about his possible rematch with Gov. Beverly Perdue and her performance to date. Then political strategist Brad Crone analyzes a potential McCrory-Perdue race. Next is fresh polling data from Francis DeLuca of the Civitas Institute. He analyzes North Carolinians’ responses on issues ranging from public education to spending, taxation, and the gas tax. Finally, Martinez provides an update on John Edwards’ court appearance this week, new plans for his daughter Cate, a national news article that features Rep. Renee Ellmers of the 2nd congressional district, and the announced November resignation of Rep. Debbie Clary of Cleveland County.
