Yes, Candidate ME was scheduled to be on a break. But then Tuesday, September 12 rolled around, the mayor was voted out, other incumbents were defeated and the Charlotte City Council changed in significant ways.

And no one saw it coming.

So host Tom Bullock digs into just why Jennifer Roberts lost, gets a preview of the general election campaigns likely to be run by Democrat Vi Lyles and Republican Kenny Smith and takes a look at the what the changes on the council really mean for the city.

Oh, and he gets to chastise our political consultants for being so very wrong in their predictions.
