How did the Republicans in the General Assembly, in charge of both houses for the first time in more than 100 years, keep the trains running on time in this session? Barlow Herget's guest on this edition of the Exclusive has a couple of good reasons to explain the Republican majority's success in meeting their own deadline to adjourn before June 30, the official end of the budget year.  Ferrel Guillory, director of the Program for Public Life at UNC-CH and Hall of Fame journalist, says that GOP discipline and a shutout of Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue in final budget negotiations did the trick.
