Democrats suing Republican legislative leaders over a law canceling judicial primaries this year subpoenaed records from the North Carolina GOP, which, this week, turned up memos outlining the state Republican Party's strategy targeting political opponents.

On this week's episode of the WUNCPolitics podcast, Rob Schofield, executive director of NC Policy Watch, and Becki Gray, senior vice president of the John Locke Foundation, assess the significance of the disclosure. They also discuss house lawmakers' efforts to address North Carolina's shortage of school psychologists and mental health counselors as well as the state's ranking in terms of teacher pay.
