Democrats and allied groups say the Republican-led General Assembly is taking the state down the wrong path. But conservatives say the legislature is simply making good on campaign promises that gave the GOP the majority, and that the relentless criticism is sour grapes from people who lost at the ballot box. Host Donna Martinez gets perspective from the Right with Becki Gray of the John Locke Foundation, who lays out why conservatives are buoyed by legislative actions. Then we turn to the 2014 race for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Kay Hagan. Senate Leader Phil Berger, Republican of Rockingham County, comments on whether he may seek the GOP nomination to challenge Hagan, as well as on voter I.D. legislation and education funding. Next are comments from Ferrell Guillory of UNC-Chapel Hill on the course charted by Republicans as welll as his view of the working relationship between Gov. Pat McCrory and the legislature. That’s followed by Martinez’s update on hot political news of the week, and a look at the prospects for Democrats and Republicans eyeing the 2016 presidential race. Those comments come from the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard.
