WFAE Talks, Episode 57: Drought, Controversial Ad Featuring McCrory, Education


Greg, Lisa and Ben discuss the politics surrounding a religious advertisement featuring Governor McCrory. The group responsible for the ad says it mistakenly mischaracterized the governor’s upcoming address to a religious gathering called The Response.  They also discuss early effects of the region’s drought, school grades, and graduation rates. Oh, and one more thing: It’s Ben’s last appearance on WFAE Talks.
