Local News Roundup: Flooding forces people from homes; Tim Moore responds to lawsuit; anti-trans legislation advances in Raleigh; Hornets look to future at NBA draft

Tim Moore

Rain wreaks havoc across the region as flooding forces people from their homes. In Kannapolis, more than two dozen people had to evacuate. We’ll have the latest.

North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore is being sued for having a relationship with a state employee. Moore says the lawsuit is baseless.

Elsewhere in Raleigh, the GOP majority continues to push for anti-trans legislation. The proposals restrict gender-affirming care and participation in sports.

And, a week after their sale, the Charlotte Hornets pick number two in the NBA draft. However, this year’s draft might be more about who the team is missing out on rather than who they get.

Mike Collins and our roundtable of reporters delve into those stories and more, on the Charlotte Talks local news roundup.
