Republicans Censure Burr, Eliminate Oversight

WUNC Politics Podcast Social Logo 4500x4500 Copy

U.S. Senator Richard Burr was censured by the state Republican Party this week, after he voted to convict Donald Trump for his role in inciting the insurrection on Capitol Hill. Elsewhere in state politics, a nonpartisan division at the General Assembly is being disbanded, and a bill to require schools to reopen now sits on the governor’s desk. Aisha Dew and Clark Riemer review some of the recent North Carolina political news.


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.
