The Federalist website and the associated online newsletter, “The Transom,” promoted John Hood’s column this week detailing how newly revised data poke holes in left-of-center arguments about North Carolina’s employment picture.

The Triangle Business Journal published Hood’s recent column on state employment gains, while N.C. Senate Republicans promoted his recent columns on unemployment data, Duke Energy’s tax obligations, and the average state of North Carolina public education, along with the transcript of a Carolina Journal Radio interview with Hood on the conservative pedigree of recent North Carolina reforms. An editorial in the Tideland News quoted Hood’s concerns about the impact of electoral gerrymandering.

Among other items of interest, Chapel Hill’s Daily Tar Heel interviewed John Locke Foundation Director of Communications Mitch Kokai for articles on North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race and the proposed Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The Rowan Free Press website highlighted the North Carolina History Project’s online encyclopedia.
