WUNCPolitics Podcast: An Ear On Elections

WUNCPolitics Podcast

/

This week on the podcast, our focus turns to two special congressional elections underway in the state. North Carolina's Ninth District was marred in an absentee election fraud scandal and November's apparent winner was never certified.

Meanwhile in the Third, a vacancy created by the passing of Walter Jones, there are more than two dozen candidates in the field. With early voting underway, reporters Rusty Jacobs and Jeff Tiberii break down what the candidates, and the voters, are saying.

Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
