President Obama headed back to North Carolina this week for a stop in the Charlotte area to tout his middle class jobs programs. His visit comes amid a variety of scandals engulfing key agencies and officials. Dr. David McLennan of William Peace University offers perspective to host Donna Martinez on how the scandals are impacting the president’s second term, as well as why Sen. Kay Hagan’s Senate seat is being eyed by both Republicans and Democrats. Then CBS Correspondent Howard Arensteen explains why the FBI believes more ricin-laced letters could be in the works as the agency investigates multiple incidents of tainted letters mailed to the president and other officials. That’s followed by analysis of new polling data that shows the questions swirling around the Benghazi terrorist attack is impacting Hillary Clinton’s approval rating. The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard provides the background. Then Democratic political consultant Thomas Mills talks with Martinez about the importance of the Hagan Senate race and the growing criticism of Republicans and GOP-led policies in the legislature. Then Cash Michaels of The Carolinians assesses the impact of the NAACP protests dubbed “Moral Mondays” on the GOP. And finally, Gov. Pat McCrory talks with Carolina Newsmakers host Don Curtis about his political background, his years as Charlotte mayor, and life in the executive mansion.
