WFAE Talks: Campaign Coordination, McCrory's N&O Beef, Gun Laws


Envision these scenarios for the 2016 election: Americans for Prosperity coordinates campaign strategies with Gov. Pat McCrory's re-election campaign. Or, Moveon.org does the same thing for the campaign of his likely Democratic challenger, Attorney General Roy Cooper.

While such coordination is prohibited on the federal level, a recent ruling by the North Carolina

Elections Board says state law allows it. WFAE's Tom Bullock reported on the ruling this week, and he talks about it more in this podcast with News Director Greg Collard and reporter Michael Tomsic.

They also discuss:

- The McCrory campaign's offer to give donors (minimum $5) a bumper sticker that says I don't believe the Raleigh News & Observer.

- A new statewide newspaper (seriously).

- Gun control and North Carolina gun laws.
