Election 2020: Battleground North Carolina

Publisher's note: The author of this post is Donna Martinez for the John Locke Foundation.

    With less than 100 days until Election Day, politics could not be more turbulent. The decisions made by North Carolina voters will determine our state's economic prospects and legislative priorities, the makeup of our state's highest court, who sits in our governor's mansion and in the White House, and which political party controls the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.

    On Monday, JLF's Donna Martinez hosted a panel of political analysts to look at the issues driving this election, the choices in key races, and the national attention and money that's already pouring in to North Carolina.
