Down-ballot races in North Carolina do not generally conjure the hearty debate and civic attention of higher profile elections. But this year, the race for a seat on North Carolina's Supreme Court may also carry a significant ideological shift.

 
Incumbent Justice Bob Edmunds, a registered Republican, is fighting to preserve his spot as a NC Supreme Court Justice, and with it, a 4-3 Republican majority on the court. Edmunds is running against Wake County Superior Court Judge Mike Morgan, a registered Democrat. Frank Stasio talks with Edmunds about the race, controversial NC Supreme Court rulings, and the debate over politicization of the NC Supreme Court.

Update: Judge Mike Morgan joins The State of Things for an interview about his respective fight for a seat on the N.C. Supreme Court. 

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.
