Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Feb. 27-28.

This episode sees the Domecast team diving deep into the March 15 primaries, with a rundown on candidates, odds and fundraising in contests high and low on the ballot. They include races for attorney general, lieutenant governor, superintendent of public instruction and, of course, the many General Assembly districts attracting primary attention.

We also focus on the blur between the candidates’ campaigns and that of the statewide bond initiative. It’s brought about two complaints filed with the state elections board. What’s the issue? It’s somewhat uncharted territory.

On the panel – and closing it out with the popular Headliners of the Week segment – are The News & Observer’s Lynn Bonner, Colin Campbell and Craig Jarvis along with Patrick Gannon, editor of the Insider State Government News Service. Benjamin Brown of the Insider hosts.

The Domecast is available and can be subscribed on iTunes by clicking here. Users of other podcast apps can find the RSS feed link by clicking here.
