Sad news from the political world this week as we learned of the death of veteran North Carolina Congressman Howard Coble after a battle with skin cancer. You’ll hear Coble’s comments to C-SPAN one year ago as he contemplated his retirement from 30 years of service to North Carolina’s 6th congressional district. You’ll also learn of reaction from his colleague, Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, as well as Gov. Pat McCrory and Senate Leader Phil Berger. Then host Donna Martinez discusses Coble’s legacy with Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson. The two also discuss the municipal election results, which saw several incumbent mayors re-elected and one incumbent defeated. Henderson also delves into Gov. McCrory’s week, which included the dismissal of a complaint from a liberal advocacy group by the state Ethics Commission and new questions about the governor’s actions as it relates to a political donor. Then Martinez talks with former Gov. Jim Martin, who will be honored this coming weekend by the state Republican Party. The two discuss his years as governor and his political beginnings.
