N.C. House Races Heat Up in Key Counties

The N.C. House of Representatives may change hands for the first time in a decade, due to redrawn legislative maps and tight races in key districts.

With less than a week till the end of voting, residents in key North Carolina counties are heading to the polls to determine who will take control of the state’s House of Representatives. Though Republicans currently hold a majority in the House, Democrats would need to secure just six more seats to flip power in their favor.

With new redistricted maps in play this year, election outcomes may be more unpredictable. WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief and host of the WUNC Politics Podcast Jeff Tiberii joins host Frank Stasio to discuss the impact of college voting, high-profile endorsements, and updated districting maps on potential race outcomes. 

Stacia Brown comes to WUNC from Washington, DC, where she was a producer for WAMU’s daily news radio program, 1A. She’s the creator and host of two podcasts, The Rise of Charm City and Hope Chest. Her audio projects have been featured on Scene on Radio, a podcast of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University; BBC 4’s Short Cuts; and American Public Radio’s Terrible, Thanks for Asking.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
