CoastLine: Political Reporter Round Table On Tuesday's Primary Results

May 10, 2018

The May 2018 primary is now over, and the candidates who made it through this elimination round now head to the ballot for the November general election.

On this edition of CoastLine, it's a lively discussion about the driving forces during the primary season, what the results might tell us about voters in the Cape Fear region, what surprised all of us and what was entirely predictable.

We also hear from voters about why they went to the polls -- or stayed home -- in what was a dismal primary turnout.  We also explore the issues likely to define the November elections.

Guests:

Tim Buckland, Senior Government and Politics Reporter for the Wilmington StarNews
