A recent Wilson Daily Times news article and editorial quoted Mitch Kokai discussing a recent hubbub involving Gov. Pat McCrory and his interaction with Moral Monday protesters. The Dunn Daily Record published the same editorial. (Mitch Kokai of the John Locke Foundation … said McCrory was probably speaking generally about his interactions with protesters and didn’t mean to say he’d specifically mingled with Moral Monday crowds.)

The Kernersville News published Becki Gray’s column on the General Assembly’s efforts to roll back bad laws. The Goldsboro News-Argus promoted Gray’s speech on constitutional issues surrounding education during last weekend’s “Camp Liberty” event.

Two state newspapers relied this week on the N.C. History Project for articles on topics from the Tar Heel State’s past. The Triangle Business Journal cited NCHP information on the 1663 Charter of Carolina, while the New Bern Sun Journal noted an NCHP entry on Pepsi-Cola inventor Caleb Bradham. N.C. Senate Republicans promoted N.C. History Project Director Troy Kickler‘s column this week on 19th-century political leader Nathaniel Macon‘s efforts to steer clear of self-promotion.

The Senate GOP also highlighted two of Carolina Journal Associate Editor Barry Smith‘s articles on election-related bills in the General Assembly, Smith’s article on regulatory reform and his recap of the state budget debate, Associate Editor Dan Way‘s report on a controversial law involving oversight of the Charlotte airport, and Kokai’s column on misuse of language in the tax reform debate. NCPoliticalNews.com promoted N.C. Education Alliance Fellow Kristen Blair‘s CJ column on a testing revolt among public school parents.
