With Super Tuesday looming, major media is here to cover it. Among those journalists is NPR’s Steve Inskeep. He's been in Charlotte this week to learn more about voters in North Carolina. We hear from him about what he’s learning here.

Steve Inskeep from NPR’s "Morning Edition" has been spending time in Charlotte this week as part of a nationwide series that began today on NPR. Inskeep discussed coverage of this election so far.

We also hear from Inskeep about the new book he released this year, "Imperfect Union: How Jessie and John Fremont Mapped the West, Invented Celebrity and Helped Cause the Civil War," the story of an 1800s husband-and-wife team who are known for their work in the westward expansion of the U.S.

Guest:

Steve Inskeep, co-host of NPR’s "Morning Edition"
