Is Mayor Foxx headed to Washington as the new Secretary of Transportation? His nomination may mean new leadership for the city. Who might fill his position here and what will Foxx face during his confirmation hearings. A panel of journalists and a political scientist share their thoughts on that and on the possible change in ownership of Douglas airport, Panther stadium funding and more when Charlotte Talks.
