We are preparing to elect our third-straight wartime president and that choice has particular significance for North Carolina. Not only are we a battleground state, we are home to those who prepare for real battlegrounds. We’re home to the third largest military population in the country, including the largest base by population in the world. What potential military decisions and security issues will the next commander-in-chief face?
