Outside Money Funds NC Supreme Court Race

WUNC reporter Jorge Valencia discusses large outside donations and negative advertising for the NC Supreme Court race

Elections for seats on the NC Supreme Court are purportedly nonpartisan. But one race this year is already infused with large outside donations and negative advertising. The state's highest court likely will rule on cases regarding redistricting, teacher tenure, voter ID laws and same-sex marriage in the coming year. Those contentious issues make the race for incumbent Democrat Robin Hudson's seat a particularly heated one. Hudson faces Republicans Eric Levinson and Jeannette Doran.

Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC reporter Jorge Valencia.
