FROM Rob Christiansen
Tar Heels and Hoosiers, Clinton and Obama Record numbers of voters are crowding the polls in both Indiana and North Carolina . Barack Obama hopes a win in both states will make him the Democratic nominee. Hillary Clinton wants to do well enough to keep going. We hear more about today's races from veteran political observer Brian Howey, who blogs at HoweyPolitics.com , and Raleigh News and Observer's political reporter Rob Christiansen, author of The Paradox of Tar Heel Politics .
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
