While conservatives and Republicans continue to mull over the factors contributing to Mitt Romney’s loss to Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential race, John Locke Foundation President John Hood reminds them in a new National Review cover story that conservatives have achieved much greater success in recent state-level elections.

Radio listeners across North Carolina will hear Hood’s insight and analysis this weekend as he joins Don Curtis again for “Carolina Newsmakers.” The Winston-Salem Journal interviewed Hood recently for a pair of articles linked to the General Assembly’s unemployment insurance reform bill.

N.C. Senate Republicans promoted in their daily press email Hood’s two most recent columns about the impact of a bill saying no to state Medicaid expansion and a state-managed health insurance exchange, along with a column highlighting two contrasting views of the economy and another offering study aids linked to school choice issues.
