Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of June 3-4.
The N.C. Republican Party is gathering this weekend in Wilmington, and the GOP faithful is sticking by President Donald Trump despite the investigation of his connections to Russia. Special guest Katie Glueck, who covers the GOP for McClatchy D.C., explains why.
The N.C. House passed its budget bill early Friday morning, launching the negotiating process with the Senate. Our reporters explain why some Democrats backed the spending plan, and what prompted debate on state employee raises and other hot topics.

And we pick a Headliner of the Week. Jordan Schrader of The News & Observer hosts, with Colin Campbell, Will Doran and Craig Jarvis of the N&O.
