WFAE Talks: Voting Law Lawsuit, Republican Infighting At Statehouse, Heritage USA
WFAE Talks is back after a brief mid-summer hiatus. This week, reporter Michael Tomsic joins Greg Collard and Ben Bradford. Michael spent the week in Winston-Salem covering hearings in federal court over the Justice Department's challenge to North Carolina's voting law. The Justice Department and other groups want a federal judge to block parts of the law from taking effect in the upcoming general election.
Governor McCrory and the Senate Pro Temp Phil Berger are sniping at each other. So are Senate and House leaders. We'll discuss the increasing animosity among Republicans at the Statehouse.
Plus, the legal fight over the unfinished tower that remains at the old Heritage USA property once run by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker.
