Today’s show saw the introduction of Drew Elliot, opinion manager, from the North State Journal. Drew discussed the creation of this weekly enterprise, how it evolved from the former Jones and Blount and how it will become a daily publication to be delivered to folks statewide. He also discussed their polling which indicated over 60% of North Carolinians don’t want an ordinance similar to Charlotte’s in their town.
We then had our weekly wrap up with Tim Boyum of Time Warner News. Tim has interviewed two transgender plaintiffs in the HB2 lawsuit against NC.
In both interviews we discussed the overwhelming good news economically that has taken place in North Carolina. Unemployment is down, underemployment is down and wages are up. Implications of this on the election in November were front and center.
Much more during the two-hours of outstanding commentary and discussion, but you’d have to listen to hear it all!
