Gary Robertson of the Associated Press an Bruce Ferrell of NC News Network join host Barlow Herget to look at who's coming and who's going in Raleigh and Washington politics.  Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-7th District, is stepping down at the end of his term.  He was facing another bruising and expensive campaign, which he barely won in 2012.  Republicans are licking their chops to take the seat.  Also departing is Ricky Diaz, the 24year-old boy press spokesman for the embattled Aldona Wos at HHS, whose latest blunder was sending out 40,000 confidential Medicaid cards to the wrong people.  Coming in is Richard Lindenmuth to lead the Commerce Department's non-profit economic development agency that still hasn't received legislative approval.
