This Friday and Saturday North Carolina Republicans will gather in Greensboro for their party’s state convention. With Wednesday’s news that Donald Trump is now the de facto Republican nominee we now know there will be no fight over delegates. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be some drama. Last week, the Republican Executive Committee ousted the party’s Chairman HasanHarnett and elected Robin Hayes in his place. It’s been seen by some as the establishment striking back against a grass roots supported anti-establishment Chairman.

On May 4, WFAE’s Tom Bullock interviewed Hayes and has this report.
