State Sen. Neal Hunt, R-Wake, tells host Barlow Herget how the Republicans in the General Assembly this session were able to move  through their agenda and adjourn before June 30.  Unlike previous Democratic majorities, there was much more talk between House and Senate leaders about their party's bills and the budget bill in particular. Hunt also argues that his party's decision not to extend the one-cent sales and income taxes on big incomes will create jobs. He recounts what happened to his bill to pardon former Republican Gov. William Holden, the only governor to be impeached and convicted.  It's a story with intrigues and old Civil War memories by some who don't forget, 140 years later.
