Balanced Debate For The Old North State.

We have a special NC SPIN this week. With just a little more than three months before the 2020 election we take examine the candidates, the races and the issues in our state. Joining our panel this week will be Dr. Michael Bitzer, Political Science Professor at Catawba College and Dr. Susan Roberts, Political Science Professor at Davidson College. Be sure to watch this insightful look into our elections Friday night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 12:30 p.m. You can also watch NC SPIN on the North Carolina channel at 10 p.m. Friday night, 4:30 p.m. on Saturday at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Plus you can always stream the show at your leisure (after 5 p.m. Friday) on the ncspin.com website. Thank you for watching NC SPIN.
