JLF president shares insights with NY Times readers

The New York Times sought expert analysis from John Locke Foundation President John Hood for an article this week about the current state of politics in North Carolina. Hood’s assessment of the state’s recent political and economic history drew an attack from News & Observer columnist Rob Christensen. Hood rebutted Christensen’s arguments online and during his latest appearance on Time Warner Cable News’ statewide “Capital Tonight” program. The N.C. Spin website promoted Hood’s response.

The Charlotte Observer and N&O quoted Hood in an article about a lawsuit challenging North Carolina’s use of 2013 election-law provisions for the upcoming November election. N.C. Senate Republicans promoted in their daily press emails Hood’s columns on regional voting differences and a conservative approach to state debt.
