When local elections officials from across the state met this week for a training, the head of the state board cracked an inappropriate joke. He resigned a day later, and left in limbo a question about what kinds of voting machines will be certified for 2020.

Becki Gray, from the John Locke Foundation, and Rob Schofield, with NC Policy Watch, review the Week In State Politics. They also talk about campaign finance reports through the first half of 2019, and an investigative piece from WRAL about one childcare organization that is receiving millions of dollars in federal funding, despite having lost it's state license to operate.
