Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of May 21-22.
The House budget bill made quick progress this week with support from 30 Democrats. Our team of reporters discusses what that bipartisanship means. We also take a look at the latest on the coal ash controversy and a little-noticed bill to resolve some mayoral drama in the tiny village of Tobaccoville.
In the second segment, we analyze Thursday night’s congressional debate between incumbent U.S. Reps. George Holding and Renee Ellmers, along with challenger Greg Brannon. And we discuss the latest PolitiFact North Carolina fact checks on House Bill 2.
We wrap up, as always, with Headliners of the Week. Colin Campbell of The News & Observer hosts, and Dan Boylan and Pat Gannon of The Insider join the panel with The N&O’s Craig Jarvis, Lynn Bonner and Will Doran.
