North Carolina set to repeal controversial LGBT bathroom law

Hosted by

North Carolina's outgoing Republican Governor Pat McCrory has called for a special session tomorrow to consider repealing HB2, the controversial law curbing legal protections for LGBTQ people, commonly known as the "bathroom bill." This comes after the Charlotte City Council rescinded a local anti-discrimination ordinance on Monday – in the latest twist in the jockeying over the issue since the statewide law was passed last March. Colin Campbell, state politics reporter for the News and Observer, joins us from Raleigh with an update.
