Civitas President Francis De Luca hosts the show for Chad today. He explains that Chad had to be put in the hospital after pushing himself too hard. He was supposed to be released today as well, but will need to take it easy for a few days. Francis then delves into Thursday’s protest over the Governor’s signing HB318 into law. About a half dozen protestors blocked the road in front of the executive mansion in a unique way. They were arrested, but it took three hours to get the chains and tubing off their arms. Then, Francis speaks with Congressman Walter Jones. They discuss a wide variety of topics including funding the military, the presidential race, the budget deal, the increase in the debt ceiling, the Governor’s signing into law the North Carolina Worker Protection Act, sanctuary cities, why he didn’t vote for Rep. Paul Ryan as House Speaker, why Americans feel they can’t trust politicians, and so much more.
In the second hour, News14’s Tim Boyum is in studio. He and Francis discuss the last Republican debate – if you can call it that. Tim gets into the first Board of Governors meeting and how Tom Ross didn’t answer whether he would be running for political office again. And, Francis and Tim have a fascinating discussion about media and debates. You don’t want to miss it.
Monday, Francis speaks with Lt. Governor Dan Forest and we feature another town in North Carolina as well for Mayor Monday.
