North Carolina voters have spoken and historic changes are coming to the North Carolina General Assembly as a Republican wave engulfs state-level races. Josh Ellis, capital reporter for, joins host Donna Martinez to discuss the power change from Democrat to Republican in both chambers of the legislature and the emerging power players.

The analysis of the legislative and congressional results continues with Jeff Shaw of the N.C. Justice Center and Becki Gray of the John Locke Foundation. They discuss the likely recount of the Bob Etheridge/Renee Ellmers race in District 2, and the surprisingly strong victories for Democratic congressional incumbents Heath Shuler, Larry Kissell, and Mike McIntyre. Martinez also engages Shaw and Gray in reaction to the vote against local sales tax hikes in 14 counties, and the overwhelming vote in favor of a constitutional amendment to prevent felons from serving as North Carolina sheriff.
